The University Of Texas, Health Science Center, is in the process of conducting Rapamycin clinical trials, to treat NF patients with tumors on the body. I’m happy to say that I’m one of those being treated. I feel hopeful as well as others members in my family. My mother and sisters are happy to take part in this study. Second day in the study, and looking forward to what I believe will be a huge step in finding a cure for NF. I also plan to give updates on any improvements I see on my tumors.
Anyone needing information about taking part in the study, stay tuned. I will have more information on who to contact in Houston, for The Rapamycin Therapy.
