    When in the relatively short history of medical research for cures and alike was there never serious risk for the desperately afflicted?
    Just look at what transpired with horrors like polio vaccination development.
    Tread cautiously, yeah to an extent there's a 90% likelihood of fatal failure, but for the desperate like me....rephrase it as a 10% chance of success and I'd rather die on the surgery table trying to recover .
