Hwang Mi-soon, 37, had been bedridden since damaging her back in an accident. Last week she walked again with the help of a walking frame at a press conference where South Korea researchers announced the results of their stem cell therapy." Came across this on slashdot this AM. If I were bedridden and my only chance at walking again was through stem cell therapy, I'd most likely hop on a plane to South Korea as soon as possible. I realize the moral/religious implications of stem cell research/therapy, but the benefits are amazing.
