You md has him to a als clinic or a pulmologist to get a reading on his breathing to see if he qualifies from medicare I think he has to be below 50 % Forget stemcell its only in china very expensive doesnt work and it could kill him Pat

You can find a good Resmed Bipap s/t on Ebay. He will actually need the vpap function. They are going to range from $1000 to $3500. This will be out of pocket and you will own it . If you want insurance to pay for it, you need a prescription and a diagnosed of ALS. Concerning the stem cell thing, some people get six months improvement only. and remember this .....Chinese surgery is not up to our standards and some people actually die from infection. Good luck, Susan
