    Hi Stephen,

    I have to thank you for being so honest and open with us all. Your video has made me even more glad that I set up this page. I realise now how important it is going to be for us all to know and support each other as we go through the trials together.

    Just think, though. In about six weeks or so you’ll be able to tell that rotten Stewart where to go. And you’ll maybe even be able to read to Margaret too. Won’t that be something to look forward to?

    I’m looking forward to giving you a great big hug when we meet in Zagreb. You’re not alone on this journey, Stephen, we’ll all be going through it together.

    Take care

    Has you thought that maybe Margaret son is doing what he think is the right thing for you all? Maybe he want to take care of you and do paperwork for you both so you don’t have to do it alone. To me he don’t sound like a bad person. He is a good son.

      I’m really worried that this trial is offering some sort of slim hope to vulnerable people like you. Surely there must be more tried and tested ways to take care of your eye sight? And there is so much support anyway, from charities and stuff.
      I’m just worried ‘cos you all sound so desperate. It worries me.
      I do hope you have all looked into this very carefully.

        Yer I agree, it’s very risky stuff, from what I can gather, it’s manly mice who have had the treatment, are Mice and Men really compatible!

      • Brian says:


        Yes, we are desperate. For us there is no other treatment to fix our eyes. We will try anything. Don’t knock it if you haven’t lived it.

    Dear Stephen

    I feel compelled to inform you that there are some excellent advocacy services available for people who are unable to manage their own affairs or are in vulnerable situations.

    Contact your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, or Age UK and they will put you in touch with your local advocacy network.

    You may not have to take this drastic step with the right support.

    I wish you well in your endeavours.

    Hey Stephan, it was very moving to hear your story and I got the feeling that you are very concerned about your wife and how best to help the people you love. I think you are all very brave to go and do this thing. I wish you well and will be following Helen’s diary to see how you all feel after the treatment and most of all what it will be like to see again, as I am a sighted person I can’t imagine what is like not to take it for granted. Best wishes Sal
