Golfer Daly to Return Ahead of Schedule After Stem-Cell Surgery – By Dan Baynes

Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) — John Daly will return to the U.S. PGA Tour in two weeks after stem-cell surgery helped the two- time major champion recover from a rib injury ahead of schedule.

Daly, 43, will play the Oct. 29-Nov. 1 Viking Classic at Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi, before heading to Australia for its Open and PGA Championship in December.

Daly withdrew from the Australian events in September citing a flare-up of the rib injury he sustained when he stopped his downswing as a woman took his photograph at the 2007 Honda Classic.

My recovery from stem-cell surgery has been closely monitored,” Daly said in a statement released by the PGA of Australia. “I’m relieved things have begun moving in the right direction.”

It will be the second straight year that Daly, who won the 1991 U.S. PGA Championship and 1995 British Open, has competed in Australia’s Open and PGA Championship.

My MS Pain is GONE!

In VICTORIES & SUCCESS STORIES on September 2, 2009 at 12:38 pm

Another adult stem cell miracle…CONGRATS to Richard + Laura Humphries for having the sight and the gumption to pursue non-conventional treatments!

…but is it truly a miracle? Let’s see:
mir·a·cle – Pronunciation: ˈmir-i-kəl Function: noun – Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin miraculum, from Latin, a wonder, marvel, from mirari to wonder at – Date: 12th century
1 : an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs
2 : an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment

Nope. Definitely not a miracle. These kind of success stories of so called “incurable diseases” improving are happening every day, all over the world, with adult stem cells…EXCEPT in the US!

Richard, Laura, thanks for blazing the trail and getting the word out!  I wish you continued health and hope many, many people follow your example! -dg

Richard Humphries, an Alexandria native from Fort Worth, Texas, has plans to play in the 2009 Deep South Four Ball golf tournament, despite suffering from secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.Seventeen months ago, Humphries, a 54-year-old Alexandria native who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, was bedridden and suffering from excruciating pain with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

“Very few people know this,” he said, “but I prayed to die every day and night, for the pain was off the charts.”…

…”The night after the second injection, I started to feel better and the fog had lifted. The time was midnight, and I had not been able to stay up that late in some time. The pain was gone….

…In February, Humphries underwent another experimental stem cell treatment to regrow inner ear nerve hairs. It not only improved his hearing but helped him tolerate heat, which can be a problem for people with MS…

“It’s an amazing recovery,” Ichem  said (Dr. Tom Ichem of San Diego, a scientist). “I was with him in (Washington) D.C. and spent three days with him, and I was, honestly, bona fide flabbergasted. It’s one thing to read about recoveries like this, but to see it first hand — I hate to say ‘miracle,’ but it was absolutely something very, very stunning. Usually when we develop new treatments, we see results with some impact, but I’ve never seen this kind of stunning impact. It literally shocked me.”

Golf for a cause

BY STEVE HANF

The questions finally ended for Glenn Heer last August. Now the fun really begins.

High Point Central’s senior golfer celebrated his 18th birthday last week immersed in work for his senior project. Beset by an unknown and life-threatening immune system disorder nearly his entire life, Heer has turned to the game he loves to raise money for research that just became a whole lot more meaningful.
