Claire Hooper is the administrator of the Adult Stem Cell Advocate's Group and a contributor to Stem Cells Pioneers. She is currently based in BOMA in Houston, TX. She was involved in a car accident more than two decades ago when she was working as a probation pearl officer which led to her knee and back injury and eventually led to her disability. As her knees and back began to rapidly deteriorate, she began doing an extensive research on alternative treatments as opposed to the traditional ones which are invasive, risky and could further lead to other surgeries and narcotic drug dependencies. She was quite optimistic that her own stem cells can treat her and improve her condition. She is now seeking to receive her bone marrow derived stem cells to treat her orthopedic conditions. Find out more of her advocacy on stem cell treatments and how she fights for the petition of eliminating the restriction on every patient's rights to access their own stem cells.
