Writing a blog takes a great deal of time, but I love doing it because it serves a number of purposes. It gives me an opportunity to share my views and because so many of you read it, it also gives me an opportunity to make an impact on my adopted country of Panama.I have made so many Friends both here and abroad just by being consistent in sharing the good, bad and ugly of Panama.
It also gives me a much needed release as I love to read and learn about things I consider important and share them with others. I have been writing this blog now for almost 7 years and I hope to continue to do so for years to come.
As some of you know, I have battled with throat cancer for the last two years. I was not a smoker or heavy drinker. I was infected with a virus! It has been a major struggle and the battle is not yet won. I have my good and bad days as I fight to destroy the cancer before it destroys me. This has been an epic journey for me as I have spent a great deal of time traveling and researching the latest and greatest cancer treatments around the world.
As I have been financially blessed to not only be able to do my own research, but collaborate with a number of partners and we have found a great deal of incredible new technologies and treatments that are either available now or soon will be for a variety of degenerative diseases. One of the most promising technologies is stem cell therapy. I have gotten a great education by visiting treatment centers, conferences and research facilities over the last year or so. I believe that this new cell technology is the key to life extension and the eradication of most diseases afflicting human kind.
With all of this education I have embarked on a new endeavor. To try and bring Panama to be the top in treatments of degenerative disease and regenerative medicine. With that aim I am diligently working with the government of Panama to put together laws and regulations governing these new technologies so that Panama can reach this goal. Thus far I have had tremendous success in recruiting help with this project and have had dozens of top doctors and researches from around the world visit Panama. Panama authorities are very interested in how this can significanlty improve the health of their citizens as well as open up the country for medical tourism. In the coming months many more doctors and researchers will be visiting Panama to see how they can participate to bring Panama to an exceptional level of technologically based treatments.
As I research as much about these subjects as I do about investing in Panama, I am considering sharing regular news on these new technologies and where Panama stands on our goals in another blog. If we are successful Panama could become the place the world looks to for a gentler and more effective form of treatments that will be many years before being accepted by big pharma, the FDA and their equivalents in many "first world" countries.
It takes a lot of effort to post regularly with commentary, but if enough of my readers are interested in this subject I will take it on. Even though I am battling this dreaded disease I am blessed to be able to bring about something positive and you can help me just by reading and spreading the news. I would like as many people to know about what Panama is doing as possible.
