Melson Visits Congress To Lobby For Stem Cell Trials

New York, NY (June 28, 2015) – When Dr. Patricia Morton, Dr. Wise Young and Captain Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson presented their case to Congress at a briefing in Washington, DC they had one goal in mind. The goal, which has been the focal point of Melson’s life since meeting Christan Zaccagnino 13 years ago, is to see her walk again. Zaccagnino suffered a diving accident as a child that left her paralyzed from the waist down and has been confined to a wheelchair ever since.

A major step for Zaccagnino being able to potentially walk again would be congress approving a clinical trial to take place in the United States focusing on non embryonic stem cell research. The trial, which samples random patients, includes surgery and rehabilitation with the end result hopefully being that person walking again. In China, this trial produced great results under the lead of Dr. Young and a number of the patients were able to walk again following surgery and three months therapy.

On June 22, Morton, Young and Melson emphatically presented their case at the Rayburn House Office Building in our nation’s capital.

With a packed room filled with interested parties, Dr. Morton, Director of Planning and Development for the Spinal Cord Injury Project, served as the moderator. Dr. Young, widely considered the best in the world for Spinal Cord Care, presented scientific data to support why the trial would be successful in America. Melson moved members of the audience and congress by detailing how he’s risked his life as a professional boxer to raise funds to cure Chronic Spinal Cord Injuries. Ms. Ida Cahill, CEO of Conqueor Paralysis now, and Dr. Balpreet Grewal-Virk, whose father was paralyzed during Hurricane Sandy, also gave heartfelt speeches.

Overall, each speaker played a key role by presenting different reasons why they believe the trial needs to take place and can be the reason hundreds of thousands of paralyzed Americans are able to walk again.

“Everything went perfectly,” said an ecstatic Melson. “Congressman Fattah really had our back too and I owe everybody who was there special thanks. Tuesday was one of the most important days of my entire life and even though we may be waiting a little bit for the word if this trial officially gets the green light, my confidence is at an all-time high. Members of congress understood the importance of these trials and the results from China presented by Dr. Young can’t be denied. If this briefing were a fight, it definitely would’ve been a knockout in our favor!”

With the cultural sea changes that are happening in the U.S. now, they ought to approve this. If this has the potential to result in Paul Williams walking again, or Gerald McClellan and Mago seeing and walking again, do it. Not to mention all the other nameless and faceless people out there. Just saw a documentary on Glen Campbell, the country/rock singer and top notch session guitarist of the late 60's/70's, on CNN last night, and the ravages of Alzheimer's. Just frightening how many people travel down this road. Jim McMahon, QB of the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears, arguably the best team ever, said he gets lost going to the corner store where he's lived for 2 decades or something. If the floodgates are opening, don't stop at this.

The United States is so full of bullsyet and jealousy of the medical technology that we are doing in Asia. The dumbarse U.S. Congress is jingoistic and want to wait for slow-arse Yank medical technology to come first with cures for everything under the sun. But we Asians are kicking arses, and the AmerKanos that can afford to come see us for cures do. And get healed. For the life of me, I don't understand Stanky -- I mean Yanky -- politricks of selfishness and imaging. If our doktors were white-skinned European instead of brown, yellow and black Asians with "slanted eyes," the U.S. Congress would be all up our males' balls and all up on our females' bosom areas. I don't wanna be mean. But it is time for old Yank arses still full of Xenophobia and ethnocentricism to retire. And let the largely none-hating generation run the States. It is a darn double fudge shame how U.S. America was once the greatest nation on the globe in change and improvement. But is now a Gerry-rigging, jealous, too-proud-to-beg giant wussy that is letting its people be cripple and sick like dying-beached whales. I salute Capt. Melson. Holla!

We Asians already have disabled (injured) AmerKanos walking and seeing that were told that they would never walk or see again. And we even have some that are seeing and walking for the first time in their lives. Haters and posers quit pretending that all foreigners are coming to Asia on tours to bang thotties. Medical treatments tours are a billion-dollar+ industry in Asia nowadays. Holla!
