Patient Success Stories

Rickie S.

Age: 72

Location: Elizabeth City, NC

Condition: COPD

Rejected Doctor’s Advice, Got Treatment and Now Life is Better

The progression of Rickie S.’s COPD forced her into early retirement. She had been a parish priest for 35 years and said it was a seven-day a week job. Rickie’s original pulmonologist disapproved of her receiving cellular therapy, which left her feeling powerless to overcome the disease.

“I used to think I’ve got nothing to lose. Now, I think I’ve got a lot to gain.”

Some time later, Rickie’s sister found an article about how the Lung Health Institute had improved the lives of other COPD sufferers. Rickie and her sister researched the Lung Health Institute and decided cellular therapy offered the best opportunity for Rickie to reclaim her quality of life. She and her sister call it a “God incident.”

Rickie now has a new pulmonologist who supports her decision to be proactive and said, “I used to think I’ve got nothing to lose. Now, I think I’ve got a lot to gain.”

If you or someone you know wants to see results like Rickie’s, please contact the Lung Health Institute today by calling (866) 392-4436.
