Lab-grown blood stem cells

My mom has a condition which requires her to get a blood transfusion every 8 - 10 years. This is extremely stressful for my brothers and me because even though we have the same blood type as her, we're all anemic and can't donate blood. This is wonderful news for people like my Mom and people who have blood-related diseases.

I hope your mom's okay now. I wonder if this is also gonna pave the way to ensuring that there's always enough supply of blood for people who need transfusions.

There's a hope finally. What I find interesting is that they didn't say they stopped aging, but that they reversed aging. As long as you retain your mental facilities long enough for a treatment, you might be ok. That's the main fact...mental strength.
