I spent part of my lunch hour listening to an interview of Gene Wilder on NPR. Wilder had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, which is what my Dad had when he died. Wilder was lucky as he was able to get treatment with stem cells. He carefully pointed out they were not embryonic stem cells though, they were his own. His blood was taken through a hose, stem cells were taken out, and then the blood pumped back into him. Just another example of the usefulness of adult stem cells.
