  • Description:

    Segment 3 - Terry & Mary Lobato are Elizabeth's parents.  They flesh out her story from their point-of-view and give more details on the situation and the progress.

    Segment 4 - Msgr. Tomasz Trafny & Dr. Robin Smith are co-authors of "The Healing Cell: How the Greatest Revolution in Medical History is Changing Your Life." The book is an easy to read, carefully researched, and clear-eyed view of medicine many decades in the making that is now paying off with treatments that repair damaged hearts, restore sight, kill cancer, cure diabetes, heal burns, and stop the march of such degenerative diseases as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig's disease. The emotionally and intellectually stimulating stories throughout the book dramatically illustrate that stem cell therapies can change the way we live our lives after being afflicted by a disease or trauma. The book is the result of a unique collaboration between the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture and the Stem for Life Foundation. It includes a special address by His Holiness Benedict XVI, urging increased support and awareness for advancements in adult stem cell research.  There is a "Google Hangout" on this issue tonight at 7pm EST.  You can get more information here.
