This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act


Pass the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act Now
Senate Stem Cell Vote This Week Take Action!

Urge Your Senators to Vote Yes on S. 5

The Senate’s first order of business when they return from recess on April 10 will be to consider the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (S. 5). This legislation is a priority for people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Debate on the bill is set to begin Tuesday, April 10 with a vote to occur by the end of the week. Modified from the version passed earlier this year by the House of Representatives, The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act (S.5) now includes language that encourages NIH to pursue other forms of stem cell research. We ask that you call your Senators prior to this vote and urge them to support S. 5.

While the Senate debate will focus on S. 5, an additional stem cell research bill known are the Hope Offered through Principled and Ethical Stem Cell Research Act or the HOPE Act (S. 30), is out there. It is meant to serve as a distraction, and we are not currently taking a position on it.

Please contact your Senators today and urge them to vote YES on S. 5. Call the U.S. Capitol Switch Board at 1-800-828-0498 or click Take Action above for the direct phone number to your Senators in Washington.

Our message is clear: There is only one stem cell bill that matters, one vote that will advance stem cell research, one vote for people with MS, and that is a YES vote for S. 5. - the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act.

I tried, but my phone isn't being happy with that number for some reason. =/ But I'm sure that the uber-liberaltastic senators we have over here in Wiscompton will with out a doubt vote for it. Let's do some finger crossage and hope for it to pass. With of course a supermajority so our smirking POTUS isn't able to veto it!

I'm completeley confident that the bill will be put through with a simple majority. A supermajority and Dubya's all-trumping veto pen will be tricky to wiggle past though. But with enough outside pressure it could definately happen. Best of luck! -Matt
