DENVER, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the momentum of their previous events, the Stem Cell Awareness Association (http://www.stemcellaware.com) will hold the sixth Stem Cell Awareness Rally in Denver, Colorado on June 13th, 2009.

A key component of the rallies is for patients who have returned from treatment abroad to share their stories, both good and bad, with those in attendance.
One such patient is David Aldrich from Florida who is a spinal cord injury survivor and was legally blind before his treatment abroad. (http://stemcellschina.com/blog/david/)

"My short-term goal is to let people know that there is help available, no matter what your physician says. But my real goal is focused on bringing people togethe
