    beyond great compared to what I see children doing now. I was always outside playing sports and a game called ditch. Ditch was formulated by the older kids and we were divided by team captains. There would be two teams, on team would hide while the other team looked for them. We would use the street we lived on and another block to hide. This game was played only at night where all the thrill happens. Then, a major disaster popped up and destroyed me, my parents, and my brothers. When I was about twelve years old I had developed a blood cancer know as Leukemia. This disease put a heavy toll on my parents as they had change a lot in order for me to get the treatment I so needed. Doctors said I was lucky to catch it on time before the cancer cells killed me. The year was 2008 and it was such a horrible year, I had lost my grandparents and I was a sick kid that could not be involved in anything because of my weak body and immune system. As months passed I was getting better and all I wanted to do at that age surprisingly was to go to school. I was able to achieve my goal and go to school; after the first two weeks of junior high I was feeling ill again and my disease had returned in my spine. This time treatment was not going to be with Chemo, I was in need of a Bone Marrow Transplant. On January 25, 2010 I was given the transplant by my older brother. I was isolated from everyone for a month and I was not permitted to leave my room. I was not allowed to eat a certain amount…

  • Music Therapy Case Study

    friends has been present. This has allowed her to reflect upon her life involving universal themes, such as having peace and relieving pain. Aldridge and a few others have sung a meditation and played guitars to match the theme raised by Lois earlier. After sixteen minutes, her physician checked on her and saw that she had a relaxed expression on her face. This treatment has shown that her pain and suffering can both be alleviated. Lois has been able to change her state of mind by using…

  • Different Types Of Stem Cells

    STEM CELLS Stem cells are very homogenous due to the fact that they are of the same family type or lineage characteristically speaking. They are differentiated from other cells by two features. The first feature is that they are able to divide by cell division and the second feature is that under specific experimental conditions they can be directed to become tissue cells with certain functions. Stem cells are able to transform or regenerate themselves growing into the body’s approximately 200…

  • Stem Cell Function Essay

    Stem cell function Over the course of human history, medicine has come along way. Centuries ago, we thought that he body was composed of different liquids called humors and if you were unlucky to get sick during this time, your blood would have been withdrawn in a process known as "blood-letting". In modern time, we can give antibiotics, perform open-heart surgery and even operate on the brain. However, one of the newest advances in medicine is stem cell research, which is a promising new…

  • Stem Cell Research Importance

    Stem Cell Research Stem cells come from embryos, fetuses, or adults that retain the capacity to develop into specialized cells and regenerate themselves; Scientists could manipulate and study stem cells in hope of using them to cure diseases. There are great possibilities in the stem cell research because they have the potential in the development of therapies and replacing defective or damaged cells. Resulting from a variety of disorders and injuries. Such as Parkinson disease, Heart disease…

  • Complications Of Stem Cell And Embryonic Stem Cells?

    breakthrough in 2006 where scientists had discovered a way to genetically reprogram mouse mature cells to convert them into a cell that has embryonic stem cell properties and these cells were named ‘induced pluripotent stem cells’ although it is still undetermined whether this new stem cell and embryonic stem cells are critically different. Human induced pluripotent stem cells were developed a year later in 2007. Scientists are optimistic about these stem cells and they are now being used within…

  • Developmental Potential Of Stem Cells

    Stem cells are cells that retained cellular renewal ability (Avasthi, Ms, & Ms, 2008). These cells can differentiate to a large spectrum of cell types including but not limited to various organ cells and other tissue cells. There are 2 main types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells (embryo) and somatic stem cells (adult). Depending on the cell’s potency, the ability to differentiate to different cells will vary. There are different potency of cells, which include: totipotency, pluripotency and…

  • The Health Benefits Of Stem Cells

    Stem Cell research has been advancing a lot in recent years and there have been many discoveries that have aided in furthering the research about cancer and how to cure it. They are the next big breakthrough in science and show a promising future. With enough time and research, scientists will be able to utilize stem cells in a way that will be beneficial to cancer patients. Cancer is known as a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth that has the potential to spread or invade to other…

  • Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

    Within the past decade stem cell research has been a very debatable issue within the secular and religious communities. The ongoing debate has been based on the basis of embryonic stem cell research, the moral ethics of it, versus adult stem cell research. While generalized stem cell research can and has led to huge scientific breakthroughs, the benefit from embryonic research does not warrant the risk of potentially killing a future President. So what are stem cells and why are they…

  • Benefits Of Stem Cell Research

    Although stem cell research can lead to astounding medical advancements, it is constantly being challenged because of the gap of misunderstanding between researchers and pharmaceutical companies. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are able to differentiate into different cell types, and aide the body in getting rid of harmful diseases. But the methods of using stem cells are usually not understood or accepted. In order to form an opinion on this controversial topic one must be…
