Education & Training
My name is Tom Donahue. I was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis in 2003. I only had a couple of symptoms the first ten years, which I handled well with exercise and weight-training. The last ten years have not been as good. My body failed miserably with both Ocrevus and Aubagio. Fortunately, a friend talked about her autoimmune disease and mentioned her research on HSCT. I had HSCT in Puebla, Mexico in July of 2023. Both the care team and the facilities were world class! My only regret is not doing it sooner. I’m convinced that HSCT stopped the progression of my MS and now its up to me to patiently retrain my brain to create new pathways from my brain to the damaged areas so that I can improve my balance and gait issues. Neuroplasticity is remarkable that way! I am a big believer in HSCT as a frontline treatment to address many autoimmune diseases, but especially MS. I live in the Midwest and am honored to be on the board supporting HSCT Hope!
