MS sufferer walks after stem cell treatment

From the MS Trust Website:

"An Australian man who was confined to a wheelchair by multiple sclerosis has made a remarkable recovery after receiving a groundbreaking stem cell treatment.

Ben Leahy, 20, was diagnosed with the disease in 2008 and lost the ability to stand within a few months.

However, a new procedure to combat the disease has helped him regain his health and he is now walking again."
