Americans are going abroad for stem-cell treatment

What if you could take cells from the fat on your body and cure whatever ails you?

Some Americans say they are doing just that, but not in this country.

They're flying to places like Panama and Costa Rica to take part in cutting edge experimental treatments with dramatic results.

Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 14 years ago, Judi LeCoq was forced to shut down the catering company she shared with her husband.

Desperate to stop the progression of the disease, she checked into the stem cell institute in Panama for a month for adipose stem cell treatments.

Stem cells are pulled from the fat and put back into the body through an I-V.
