The Stem for Life Foundation is pleased to announce the release of The Healing Cell: How the Greatest Revolution in Medical History Is Changing Your Life, written by Dr. Robin Smith (President and Trustee of Stem for Life Foundation), Monsignor Tomasz Trafny (Head of Science and Faith Department, Pontifical Council for Culture of the Vatican), and Dr. Max Gomez (Trustee of the Stem for Life Foundation, Health Correspondent for WBCS-TV).
This historic book is collaboration between The Vatican’s Pontifical Council (via its charitable foundation STOQ) and the Stem for Life Foundation. A literary first, it includes a special address by His Holiness Benedict XVI, urging increased support and awareness for advancements in adult stem cell research to alleviate human suffering.
The Healing Cell is the result of the dialogue initiated at the First International Adult Stem Cell Conference (2011) and provides the reader with an engaging, comprehensive overview of adult stem cells and their essential role in the future of regenerative medicine. In compelling prose, the book showcases distinct examples of adult stem cell breakthroughs, including their ability to repair damaged hearts and organs, restore sight, eradicate cancer, cure diabetes, heal burns and stop the onslaught of degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.
On June 27, 2012, the co-authors of The Healing Cell, Msgr. Tomasz Trafny, Dr. Robin Smith and Dr. Max Gomez presented the first edition of the book to the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
