Hi Kim, I am busy writing stories of my childhood, young adulthood and basically whatever else is happening in our everyday lives right now for my daughter, who is an only child, to read in her later years. So pleased I found your blog, as these topics are just perfect for me. They have brought back so many recollections of my childhood. You know how you have all these memories in your head, but you just don’t know where to start? It can become very overwhelming. Your list has provided me with a starting point. I can’t wait to put pen to paper. Thank you. Greetings from South Africa.
Stem cell transplant is a method of giving very high doses of chemotherapy and sometimes radiation therapy, and then replacing the blood-forming cells destroyed by the cancer treatment. Stem cells (immature blood cells) are removed from the blood or bone marrow of a donor. After the patient receives very high doses of chemotherapy and sometimes radiation therapy, the donor's stem cells are given back to the patient through an infusion. These reinfused stem cells grow into (and restore) the patient's blood cells. A stem cell transplant may use stem cells from a donor who is or is not related to the patient.
Discussing RMT in the New South Wales Parliament in 1995, the state Minister for Health, Andrew Refshauge – a medical practitioner – stated that the general issue of admissibility of evidence based on recovered memories was one for the Attorney General.  In 2004 Australian Counselling Association issued a draft position statement regarding recovered memories in which it informed its membership of possible legal difficulties if they affirm accusations as true based solely upon discussion of a patient's recovered memories, without adequate corroborating evidence.
