    Woman Credits Stem Cells for Walking Again 11/22/2006

    Ricci Kilgore is a part of the international research with stem cell treatments. She’s a Reno High graduate who suffered a paralyzing accident at the age of 19. In fact, she was told she’d never walk again. 7 years after her accident, she is walking again. And she believes it’s the stem cells that are making it possible.
    She works out at least 4 times a week. Her recovery is one step at a time. Her spirit is unbreakable and her progress for the most part is unbelievable. She credits hard work, a good attitude and stem cell treatments.
    “I was paralyzed from my waist down when I first went down there,” Kilgore said. “Within the first 2 treatments, I’ve gained 65% back of the muscle mass and motor control and it just continues to get better.”
    Kilgore is working with U.S. doctors who do stem cell treatments at a clinic in the Dominican Republic. She said it’s amazing how the cells seem to work.
    “It knows exactly what to do,” Kilgore said. “They’re not programmed. That takes a lot out of you and I tell people you know, how kids are growing up and they are so tired when and when they take naps. That’s exactly how I feel. There is so much regeneration going on in their bodies to try and keep up. So you’re tired all the time.”
    Ron Conaster has been working with Kilgore for about a year now.
    A world class athlete in high school, Kilgore was headed for the Olympics in pole vaulting before the accident. She still takes on every sport that strikes her fancy and was listed 4th in the U.S. for disabled skiing last year. But it’s her overall progress here that’s most important to her.
    “I thought when she first came in that we’d see subtle changes,” Conaster said. “But the changes are huge. They, they’re unexplainable really.”
    “I’m totally a true believer in the stem cells,” Kilgore said. “But I know if I didn’t do things to stimulate them with activities they wouldn’t be turning on.”
    Kilgore has invested more than $30,000 in the treatments so far, so her commitment is a financial workout too. And it’s all political but to her, it’s worth the risk.
    “Of course it’s taking chances,” Kilgore said. “I’d be used as a guinea pig. But somebody’s got to do that, somebody’s got to take that role.”
    And she says if the able-bodied could walk in her shoes, they too would feel the need to take a chance.

          Rader, who said his cells come from the former Soviet republic of Georgia, now meets patients one weekend a month in the beachfront city of La Romana in the Dominican Republic. His company, Medra Inc., is based in Malibu.
          Dr. Rader and Medra have been red flags in the past.

            There are posts regarding previous questionable activities by this Dr.

            The odd thing about this story is that the patient seems so credible, yet there is very little information (that I have found at least) as far as her asia status after injury, complete or incomplete, recovery before treatment, x-rays, etc.

            If there is anything of substance behind this story, these facts should come out to be analyzed by those qualified to do so.

              There appears to be no pre-treatment assessment from a qualified third party. Did she start as an ASIA C, B, or A? What was her rehab regiment?

              We ask these questions, yet no answer is provided. Why?

                I hope her story has integrity. She doesn't strike me as someone who would absolutely blow this out of proportion. In the vid, she stated she was seven years post and she gained approximately 65 percent back. She is an athlete both at the olympic level pre and post injury (not that this directly has anything to do with it) . I hope she ends up being credible.

                  She doesn't seem to be to readily available. In a search I've found that her name has been floating around for some time but yet we still haven't heard much from her other than that video. She supposedly posted here but never returned. I wish there were some way to contact her. her name shows up in a lot of places for her olympic achievements also...

                        I received an email from a member @ cc, who claims the following:

                        "chasb -- I am a new user to CareCure Community, and a quack stem cell whistleblower. I noticed you had commented on the Ricci Kilgore thread. She claims to be able to walk after treatments in the Dominican Republic with 'stem cells' administered to her by William Rader, the Malibu psychiatrist.

                        (body of story deleted)

                        I'd like to get to know the community a little better first, however, and hoped I might bring a few members up to speed (if they were interested) before the story breaks. Any help or advice you can offer would be most welcome.

                        For what it's worth, I suspect Ricci Kilgore has given that speech before delivering it in Texas, as part of a recruitment effort for new patients. Rader has used such patients before to attract new clientele".

                        (I purposely deleted a large part of the body of the message, due to the
                        authors request. According to the email, a story is about to break in the news. Hopefully, the author will come forward and explain what is going on before it does).

                          I've heard a lot of bad things about Dr. Rader. Even heard he's a psychiatrist and has no experience with sci or stem cells at all...

                              Ricci Kilgore is not legit because she promotes a "treatment center" that is not legit. Open the link below on questionable stem cell therapies. Dr. Rader/Medra is a grist mill for peoples money.

                                I met with Ricci down in the Dominican last year (end of July 06) while taking a family member down to have a stem cell treatment. We spent approx 2.5 hrs visiting with her and her female traveling companion. While I don't know alot about Ricci, I do believe she is genuine in her belief that stem cells are what have most contributed to her being able to walk. She was wearing ankle braces and did have a cane which she seldom used. As I said, I don't know if the stem cells are what made the difference, but she is for real.
