Bugaboo Before Bedtime

at | 34 Replies

A warm embrace to, clockwise from top left: Johnny Keenan, Vanessa Foran, Stephen Garland, Neil Curran (with Bugaboo pram), Olga Cronin and ‘Preposterous‘, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

The show can be viewed in its entirety above.

Stephen spoke about his 15 years living in Barcelona. He also gave an update on fund raising for stem cell research for his  PPMS.

Details on the ‘get that man a pint’ initiative mentioned by Stephen during the show can be reached here and  here.

Meanwhile, Olga brought another dispatch from the Disclosures Tribunal and father incredibly-soon-to-be Neil rejoiced in the delight of the Bugaboo. Pram hipster.

A little swearing.

Sorry.

    20 squid donated to Stephen.

    One question, if Stephen reads… the go fund me has a goal of 70k. The pint Site has a goal of 50k. What’s the overall goal?

    What’s the cost of the treatment? Any chance of reaching that by Jan? Are there better options than Russia? What are the potential side effects of the treatment? Will you have someone travel with you to help you get home?

    MS sucks…hope you get the funding..sorry that was more than 1 question. :)

        Yes I didn’t ..not yet.

        One more question actually.. is there any chance this treatment will be recognised as a standard treatment for those who want it/need it.. so that the HSE / insurance companies will fund it? Like at what point does a successful outcome from a treatment become available to everyone who needs it so you don’t have to go through the rigmarole of fundraising? Stem cell treatment works so why aren’t the HSE funding this..

          That’s worded wrong..what I mean is at what point is a treatment”s efficacy deemed worthy of state investment? Cost wise I’m sure it’s cheaper than some drugs out there..

            Anne, we’re going to need a proper sentence with conventional word use. And then we’ll go from there.

        No probs… fingers crossed he gets the funding. I’ve since listened to the episode btw.. tis a bit of a joke that they don’t do stem cell treatment here for MS..since they do it already for other illnesses.

    It was a tad tardy in getting underway. And that seems to have pushed memes over the edge. We may not see him again.
