I have joined local online support group and I a worried about one girl she seems to have been told that the usa at the mayo clinic is doing research on stem cell research and she has it in her head that it could cure her of lupus and I do not know what to say to her she is getting everyone excited about this break through I do not want her giving herself false hope or any one else for that matter. so I am asking anyone here have they heard of this research. we all know here that so far there is no cure. what do say to her and all the others have any of you been approached for trials.i am worried she is going spend lots of money and time on this. and she is going to be very disappointed at the end. and even more depressed than what she already is. she is only young and not handling this disease very well. any suggestions or help how to handle this situation would be greatly appreciated my friends.
