Please support Marc Coppins
Marc Coppins was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (M.S.) on April 1, 1999… 12 years ago. Being a big practical joker, April Fool's Day used to be one of his favorite days of the year. Over the years, Marc has tried almost every M.S. drug that is on the market, receiving benefit from some, but also having major side effects with most of them, which caused him to switch to another therapy.
Marc was accepted into an FDA approved study in Chicago in March, 2011, that will improve his quality of life anywhere from stopping the disease where it is so there will be no further deterioration all the way to total reversal of symptoms. We have prayed and done thorough research into the study and are now ready to proceed. Our journey began March 30, 2011.
His stem cell transplant was done on May 17, 2011 - which is called his stem cell birthday. He was discharged from Northwestern Memorial University Hospital/Prentice Women's Hospital on May 27, 2011 to come home for recovery.
