San Antonio, TX
Age: 75 | Location: San Antonio, TX | Condition: COPD
Before he was diagnosed with COPD, James was the owner of 40 dry cleaning plants and managed 225 employees. After diagnosis, however, he found that his usual routine had become more difficult to perform. Needing advice about his next steps, James consulted with his original pulmonologist and his primary care physician about stem cell therapy, but they did not encourage it.
However, when James went into the hospital again, he received the confirmation he needed from his hospital physician. When James told her about his upcoming appointment with the Lung Institute she said, “I’d go for it if I was you. You don’t have anything to lose.”
Since treatment, James has noticed improvements in his quality of life, including better color, improved labs, enhanced capability to hold his breath, and taking a shower, which James considers his biggest success.
James is looking forward to returning to his busy life and gives this advice: “Don’t quit!”
Happy birthday, James!
During James’ booster treatment at the Lung Institute, he celebrated his 75th birthday. As a special surprise, some of the staff sang Happy Birthday to him and gave him cupcakes, a card and a company polo shirt.
