Elizabeth City, NC
Age: 72 | Location: Elizabeth City, NC | Condition: COPD
The progression of Rickie’s COPD forced her into early retirement. Rickie’s original pulmonologist disapproved of her receiving stem cell therapy, which left her feeling powerless to overcome the disease. Some time later, Rickie’s sister found an article about how the Lung Institute had improved the lives of other COPD sufferers. Rickie and her sister researched the Lung Institute and decided stem cell therapy offered the best opportunity for Rickie to reclaim her quality of life.
Rickie now has a new pulmonologist who supports her decision to be proactive and said, “I used to think I’ve got nothing to lose. Now, I think I’ve got a lot to gain.”
