I can't believe I just watched a team of real doctors inject a 6-year-old girl with a deadly disease... and smiled. Who knew something called a "serial killer" cell could bring so much unforgettable joy and happiness?-Ray Flores

This is really amazing. This apparently just jump-started this child's immune system. I wonder how they arrived at this idea? Thanks for good news, J.L.

Wow. Perhaps I missed something as my brain isn't thinking too well with the cold I have. But can she now die from AIDS? That isn't a pleasant way to go either. So did they save her from one thing to suffer and die with a different disease? I mean, I'm glad she is doing so well, and perhaps it is buying her some additional time to live. I just am confused I guess on the full picture of things.

Wait a minute, did I just view a miracle happen? I couldn'd find other or better words than already posted above..
Thx JL! ( How come nobody ever heard about this revolutionary find before..)

Wow! That is just amazingly creative! No, Dandelion, she won't get aids, they did mention that these HIV cells have been modified so that they can't cause other problems like that. This treatment has enormous potential in terms of what it does for leukemia and the hope it brings for other forms of therapy that can do the same thing, reprogram our immune system to recognize and destroy unhealthy invaders like cancer cells. This, it seems to me, is potentially Nobel Prize winning work. I'd vote for them today, had I a vote and anyone listened to me. This is groundbreaking territory. What a wonderful amazing team of healers. There are plenty of things to fault GE for, but this is one thing they certainly got right in supporting this research. There will be many more lives saved with this new approach. They needed a miracle and they got one, so will a lot of other children and adults. The single best and most hopeful news I have ever heard regarding cancer. Who knows how widely this new approach may range in treating diseases of the immune system, and perhaps more. Great story, thank you JL!

Thank you Gene for answering my question. As I said, my mind is a bit slow today. So if she will not contact AIDS then this truly is a marvelous thing to view.

I hate being cynical, I just hope that it doesn't become so high in cost that only those who are rich will be offered this cure. The poor in the beginning will be offered it as the experimental drug, but once it is shown to be helpful many times then it may be out of the reach for many. We stil have many who die because they can't even get simple health care in the USA due to our "For Profit" health system.

But I'm delighted for this one child and her family. May she go on to have a most wonderful life.

Oh, thank you! My brother died an of Aids related illness, non-Hodkins lymphoma. While Emma's miracle made me cry, I take great comfort in knowing that the horrible disease that took my brother's life is now being used to save lives. I am overjoyed to know that Emma is well! :)

Yes, wow!

I've been following research into cancer treatments using viruses to target cancer cells, but using the HIV virus was a leap! So, they used the HIV virus's T-cell targeting mechanism, but modified it so that it wouldn't destroy healthy T-cells: they found a silver lining in the black cloud that is HIV infection!

Yep - Nobel prize for this; and life for a young dying girl and her family.

Thanks, JL -- I'll be following this site.

Truthfully, i was tested HIV + positive last 3years. I keep on managing the drugs i usually purchase from the health care agency to keep me healthy and strenghtful, i tried all i can too make this disease leave me alone, but unfortunately, it keep on eating up my life, this is what i caused myself, for allowing my fiance make sex to me insecurely without protection, although i never knew he is HIV positive. So last few 4days i came in contact with a lively article on the internet on how this Powerful Herb Healer get her well and healed. So as a patient i knew this will took my life 1 day, and i need to live with other friends and relatives too. So i copied out the Dr Zuma zuk the traditional healerís email id: spiritualherbalisthealers@gmail.com and I mailed him immediately, in a little while he mail me back that i was welcome to his temple home were by all what i seek for are granted. I was please at that time. And i continue with him, he took some few details from me and told me that he shall get back to me as soon as he is through with my work. I was very happy as heard that from him. So Yesterday, as i was just coming from my friends house, Dr Zuma zuk called me to go for checkup in the hospital and see his marvelous work that it is now HIV negative, i was very glad to hear that from him, so i quickly rush down to the nearest hospital to found out, only to hear from my hospital doctor called Browning Lewis that i am now HIV NEGATIVE. I jump up at him with the test note, he ask me how does it happen and i recede to him all i went through with Dr Zuma zuk I am now glad, so i am a gentle type of person that need to share this testimonies to everyone who seek for healing, because once you get calm and quiet, so the disease get to finish your life off. So i will advice you contact him today for your healing at the above details: Email ID:spiritualherbalisthealers@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW TO SAVE YOUR LIFE:spiritualherbalisthealers@gmail.com AS HE IS SO POWERFUL AND HELPFUL TO ALL THAT HAVE THIS SICKNESS
