Lifelong public servant Ray Flynn is on a mission that promises to save many lives, including that of his own grandson.
He rose to prominence and fame as mayor of Boston from 1984 to 1993. He then served as the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican. Now he’s turned his attention to helping people understand the potential and opportunity that lies in adult stem cell technology and in particular, stem cell nutrition.
He explains the rare neurological disease afflicting his 8-year-old grandson Braeden; a disease so rare it doesn’t even have a name. Flynn describes the anguish of their family as they’ve unsuccessfully searched the country for options and how the disease has left his grandson unable to walk without falling and unable to talk.
Find out more about his efforts to help Braeden and others with neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. He looks back on the tremendous efforts made in the 1980s and 1990s to combat AIDS and why he wants to see a massive involvement from the entertainment community on this issue as well to help spur on research.
He already has some heavy hitters on his side: he describes attending an adult stem cell conference at the Vatican, including support from his friend, the Pope.
