Barry Brown is a 38 year old Physical Trainer in the Air Force who suffered a heart attack unexpectedly. He was approached by Dr Juan Pablo Zambrano, a cardiologist, while receiving treatment in Hospital. Dr Zambrano suggested to Mr Brown that he have his own stem cells extracted then injected in to his heart muscle following his bypass operation to heal him from his suffering.
Four weeks prior to the operation, Mr Brown had stem cells extracted from his own Bone Marrow to help with his treatment. These stem cells were then injected in to the patients heart muscle immediately after his bypass, in hope to make his heart strong again.
Mr Brown now says that he feels no discomfort and that he started by adding a quarter mile to his daily workout walk, then by spring increased to 3 whole miles per day. Now at the age of 39, Barry Brown feels he is strong and healthy enough to train and compete in a mini-triathlon.
