When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and say. "You hit like a bitch."



Ok, so remember when I said I’m seeing this amazing new Dr in October? Way back in August? He was the front runner in stem cell therapy and he’s helped many renal patients. Turns out it was a hoax. They want you to pay upfront and then you get nothing. Luckily Pete and I become very suspicious when someone wants money upfront. My Sister went and researched some more and it transpired to be a hoax. Some people have paid as much as R100k and got given saline solution. Can you believe there are people out there who take advantage of sick and dying people? There must be a special place in hell for people like that.

There are clinics who are doing stem cell therapy, it’s mostly for other organs, kidneys not so much. In Europe they are a bit more advanced with the whole stem cell thing. So there is lots of information out there and it’s easy to fabricate some info. My best advice is to double check if it’s a new therapy and never pay anything upfront.

Anyway, lucky for us we found out early on that it was a total hoax. But others weren’t that lucky, I really feel for them.

  1. My heart sank when I realised it was a hoax. I couldn’t believe there are such heartless people on earth.

  2. A special place in hell…. yes, I agree, for people like this and those adoption hoaxes… in fact anyone who offers a false hope to those of us who have a dream and get hurt in the process.
    The world is full of sick, horrible, cruel people!
