14th Feb: SUDDENLY!

“Everything can change in any moment, suddenly and forever”

Paul Auster


And as the doors close to Australia SUDDENLY the doors opened to Singapore General Hospital.  Not something I had every considered before, in fact they have only just started receiving
western patients – I would be the second one.

So within 48hours of enquiring and my medical records being sent, Im off to be assessed.

Then within the last few days I have been given dates, appointment times and my flights
are  being booked.

Next Monday, the 23rd my amazing sister & I will be flying to Singapore for me to meet the
Neurologist and haematologist on the 25th and 26th.  I then fly home on the 28th.

Soooo much to do in such little time – breathe Becks breathe…

Singapore – where my life COULD be changed forever


As I visit this beautiful Island, I will find out if they will accept me to under go a Stem cell

As many doors have closed over the last three years I have recently been left wondering Why?, Im tired and can I keep doing this…

Then I discover that Professor Slavin from Tel Aviv (door opened & closed) who I knew had trained Prof Richard Burt from Chicago (door opened & closed) has trained Dr Ho
from Singapore – who would of imagined that I would get the opportunity to be considered to be treated by the knowledge of the worlds best!

Isaiah 55:8-9New King James Version (NKJV)

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

    Hi Rebekah, a friend just forwarded on the link to your blog. My husband has MS and is on the waitlist for stem cell transplant in Moscow (current date of Nov 2017) and on reading your blog, I’m excited to hear that Singapore General Hospital may be an option and somewhere we would like to look into. Can you provide me some details about how to get in contact with the Singapore hospital. Best of luck for your trip next week, that is wonderful news. Many thanks Kirsten (Wellington)

      Sorry if I have not replied to you yet & please excuse me if I have:/ Been a crazy week;)

      You can email Singapore General Hospital at ims@singhealth.com.sg
      Be aware that they are only accepting RRMS. Would also make it much easier if when you approach them you give tham a quick profile including where you have already been accepted/ what DMD’s you have been on & your neurologists information as they will need medical information from them. Hope that helps:) Becks
