In 2001, Debbie Bertrand started having numbness in her hands and feet. She also experienced difficulty walking, saying that “it felt like my legs were iron.” Upon seeing a doctor, Debbie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which left her shocked and wondering what to do next. It was during church one Sunday that a fellow member approached her about his doctor, Dr. Stanley Jones, and told her about stem cell therapy and Houston-based Celltex Therapeutics Corporation. After doing some online research, Debbie felt stem cell therapy was a treatment option she should try and called Dr. Jones the following Monday to learn more about how the process works.

Eller is a graduate of Texas A&M University, who served two terms as Chairman of the Board of Regents and also served as Chancellor of The Texas A&M University System for a short period.
