Dave Bexfield went through an experimental NIH-sponsored clinical trial (HALT-MS) for his aggressive multiple sclerosis: a bone marrow stem cell transplant designed to stop disease progression. The consent form he signed warned that the odds of death were 1 in 20. Despite repeated insurance denials, Dave pressed forward. The risky but potentially groundbreaking treatment performed in March 2010 required over a month of testing, three weeks in the hospital, and intensive rehabilitation. Bexfield also runs www.ActiveMSers.org, a nonprofit website designed to help, motivate, and inspire those with multiple sclerosis to stay as active as possible—physically, intellectually, and socially—regardless of physical limitations.
