LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Harry's Walk brought people to the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge Saturday to walk with a message.

The goal was to raise awareness of Peripheral Arterial Disease, also known as PAD. PAD is the narrowing of the peripheral arteries, most commonly in the arteries of the pelvis and legs.

Currently, UofL Research Center is developing stem cell therapy to reduce pain and loss of limbs caused by the disease. 

"I want other people in the same position to be able to get help and keep all their limbs," said Harry Conn, a participant in the study who has seen results.

This stem cell therapy is not yet available to the public pending FDA approval. The study is FDA approved.
