I always try to be a valued member on all hair forums giving advice, i always try my best to help people make an educated decision regarding transplants, my goal is to prevent people making the same mistakes as i did and to ensure that they wont regret their ht for years to come like i did with my norton one, my norton horror story can be found in the transplant patient section

BIGMAC and PB bless their hearts decided to help me by starting a REPAIR BULLITNUT campaign.

They did this off their own backs as they knew how my situation was destroying my quality of life because i have being livng under a hat for over a decade.

Not being able to enjoy the simple things in life was really getting to me, things like not being able to take my young children to the local swimming pool etc was having a major impact on my life and i was getting very depressed. The intention of this project was to raise funds and encourage hairtransplant clinics to get involved and offer help.

Fortunately for me SHAPIRO MEDICAL GROUP www.shapiromedical.com offered almost immediately to do my repair surgery pro bono which i am absolutely over the moon about and unbelievably grateful.

As ive already said i regard them as being world class and one of the very best there is, they have shown to be consistently one of the most ethical, caring and compasionate clinics out there. Every aspect of this project so far has been done with my best interests at heart, they are just so unbelievably helpful and i would recommend them to anyone as their results are incredible and their customer service is impecable. So to get this offer is like a dream come true for me.

The guys set up a paypal account on the forum for donations towards the travel expenses etc and i recieved lots of donations including:-

1. The hotel paying for by fellow forum member TIM UK

2. The flights for my first trip paying for by another forum member called TUBS

3. The meals on the day were also payed for by a member called NERVOUS NELLY

4. The flights for my second trip were also payed for by SPENCER KOBREN the author and radio host of the bald truth www.thebaldtruth.com/



I also recieved many donations from other members of all the major hairloss forums including JANNA the head technician at SMG who as helped co ordinate this entire project and has been absolutely fantastic and supportive from the beginning.

SO TO ALL THAT AS BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The repair project starts on january the 10th 2009 and i will be keeping this forum upto date with pics and details through out my progress

Bullit,

This is the coolest thing ever. Its exciting to see that it is truly going to happen and begin to change your life. I give so much credit to all the good people on this forum and others that have donated and/or supported thru kind words of encouragement. SMG is a class act for doing this and ofcourse there is sometimes little fanfare for all the other probono work that they do.

Looking forward to witnessing your progress.

Hi all,

I wanted to update all of you on BN's surgery. He was very nervous walking into the clinic. He spoke with Dr. Ron for about an hour to hash out the plan of action. BN left all the planning up to Dr. Ron - basically put his head in Doc's hands. Once the "plan" was understood, Bn sat in the chair to get his local anesthetic. He tolerated it very well. When I asked if he was doing okay during donar harvest, he replied he was rather enjoying it all. Anyway, he is doing well. We excised three separate strips - two were virgin territory on the two sides and the middle section was mostly scar tissue. When all was said and done, BN received 2397 grafts (142 DFU's). We've took plenty of photos upon BN's request so he'll tell you all about it from his perspective.

NN,

BN said he favorite food was pizza so we ordered from Davanni's. He loved it!! On behalf of SMG staff, "THANK YOU FOR A GREAT LUNCH". Everyone ordered what they wanted and we were only $.50 over........it worked out perfectly. Thanks again!

Hi Janna..

Thanks for the update.

Wish BN well from me....I am a little concerned that he "enjoyed" the harvesting !!! Never mind.. it takes all sorts !!

Makes me feel so happy to know how good people can be and how they can pull together and help a great guy...

THREE CHEERS FOR ALL AT SMG.....

"He enjoyed the harvesting"??? Did he order his pizza with Fava beans and a nice Chianti?? c;;9 We might have to worry about that boy. LOL

Glad all went well. Can't wait to see the pics. I am sure he will be a new man.
