Russell Scott is from Austin, Texas and is a former World-Class Team Bike Racer and a member of the US National Cycling Team. Everything was going well in his career until last 1991, he was diagnosed with MS and the news came in a month before he got married. Prior to his diagnosis, he was starting to see symptoms of his illness but disregarded them until 2 years later they had their first child, his left arm started to deteriorate and eventually couldn't drive and then realized that the MS has already progressed. He has used a variety of treatments possible for his MS and that includes the use of Disease Modifying Drugs (DMDs) which just basically slow down the progression of MS but not improve it. He is planning to receive an HSCT Treatment - a two tiered approach that is compose of a chemo therapy and the stem cell treatment in Mexico which he is currently crowd funding in order for him to receive the treatments.
