This is my web site about my story of how I said my MS Goodbye.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Under the heading “Katja – My MS” you can read how the disease went and how I dealt with this bad news.
At the end of 2017, for the first time, I learned of the possibility of HSCT, an autologous stem cell transplantation (own! Stem cells, no donor required) that can stop MS with a probability of up to 90%. At the end of 2018 I made the decision to do this treatment!
My neurologist advised against it because the therapy is considered dangerous. De facto, however, the mortality rate is less than 0.5%. Personally, I consider MS medication to be far more dangerous.
Incidentally, my hematologist welcomes this therapy. Since MS is an autoimmune disease, it finds a stem cell transplantation logical. Even the neurologists do not deny that this therapy is extremely effective and the study data very good!
Since there is no approval for this therapy, the health insurance companies do not cover the costs! That’s why I’ve collected over 50,000 € via fundraising – within just eight weeks I had the money together. On 18.02.2019 I flew to Moscow to the A.A Maximov Hospital to see me there. Let Fedorenko be treated.
What should I say: I am now MS-free! (This treatment can not repair existing damages, but stop the further course!)
You can follow this whole history since the beginning of my fundraiser, the treatment in Moscow and the development today and continue in my BLOG.
