UPDATE June 2017 THANK YOU to everyone who wrote and called the Texas Legislature! HB810 Charlie’s Law was signed by Gov. Greg Abbott. The Texas Board of Health will define rules starting in Oct. 2017. Here is a news report as of Sept. 25, 2017 The future of stem cell therapy in Texas
May 13th, 2017 – There are currently bills before the Texas Legislature that would allow access to adult stem cell therapy in the State of Texas, rather than by travelling outside of the U.S.
This week advocacy members of Patients For Stem Cells testified before the Texas House of Representatives in support of these bills, and we are happy to report House Bill 810 by Rep. Tan Parker, passed the Texas House with 150 yes votes and zero no votes.
An emotional speech by Rep. Drew Springer, R-Muenster, about his wife’s need for a medical cure from stem-cell research, brought together this unanimous, bi-partisan vote.
Now the Texas Senate needs to hear from their Texas constituents! The next step is the Senate vote, and we have advocates at the Capitol who will deliver your testimony.
If you live in Texas, please send the following information:
1. Your full name, city, state & zip code
2. Why you think adult stem cell therapy should be allowed in Texas. Maybe you or a loved one has a terminal or chronic condition that could be treated by stem cells. Or you just want to support medical freedom.
Send your email to: PatientsForStemCells@gmail.com
Deadline before Senate vote: Tues, May 16th, 2017

For everyone who doesn’t live in Texas, rest assured that this legislation may well start a trend for other States to follow. We will keep you informed as this movement expands, and look forward to your participation!
