Innovative Therapy Treats Lung Diseases

People who suffer from lung diseases face numerous obstacles and along these barriers include its physical, mental and social difficulties. The physical difficulties of those with lung disease include a chronic cough that brings up sputum, difficulty breathing that brings on limitations of everyday activities that results in limited mobility, loss of independence, an inability to work that results in financial implications of the illness and loss of income. The psychological consequences of lung disease include loss of dignity, low self-esteem, frustration, guilt, isolation, depression, anxiety and altered body image.

Lung Stem Cell Treatment

Stem cell therapy is the latest treatment for debilitating and life-threatening lung diseases such as interstitial lung disease, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and emphysema. The stem cell therapy to treat these diseases uses stem cells from the patient’s body. The cells, known as autologous stem cells, are extracted from either the bone marrow or the bloodstream. After the extraction of the blood cells, the stem cells are separated from the other cells and returned to the patient’s body. Once returned to the body, the stem cells return to the patient’s bloodstream to promote the healing of lung tissue. Stem cell therapy for lung diseases is minimally invasive and less painful than a lung transplant.

Trained to Succeed

I have been working for Stephen Murray CCMP Capital for a few years now and I feel like in my head I’m always picking out new employee candidates. We are not the type of company to be hiring constantly, but it is always good to have a few individuals in mind in case a position opens up one day. I myself happen to have a few friends who have obtained their bachelor and associates degree in accounting and law so they would be a great asset to our team at CCMP. Although I probably don’t even have 1% of the say in who is hired here, at least I can get them an application and put in a good word for them to the CEO. The application process is pretty extensive so no matter what the CEO has to follow certain guidelines before hiring somebody.

I remember when Stephen Murray was the CEO here at CCMP. He was an awesome guy to be around at the office because he would take everything you said into consideration, even people you send his way with an application. Although he was a very strong-minded businessman, he was also empathetic at that same time. If any of his employees needed a day off for personal reasons, he would not judge them nor dig into their personal life. He certainly would not put up with asking for a day off all the time, but when it was needed, it was given. There was a few times where my father ended up in the hospital and I personally had to ask for a week off all at once. When I brought it to his attention there was no hassle at all. It was an okay, a pat on the back and out the door I went.

Out of all jobs I have worked at in the past, CCMP Capital is at that top of my favorites list. Not only are the employees amazing, but I am very comfortable with the atmosphere that surrounds me here. It has always been hard for me to transition into a new job, but when I came here I was instantly at home. Although the work can get tough at times, I have worked here long enough that I have the confidence that it takes to succeed in something I am having difficulty with. Sometimes people thrown their hands in the air when they can’t figure something out, but me and the rest of the employees here were trained to keep going until we got it and that is exactly what we do.
