So we are trying to change our game plan with raising money for this treatment. Our goal is to now create a documentary that will benefit everyone who has been affected by any illness. If used responsibly and derived from the right sources, stem cell treatments could change everything. Help us make this documentary and show the world this potentially groundbreaking cure, for nearly everything. We are at 100.00 and have quite a hill to climb, but every share and every dollar is just that much closer.
The fundraising amount has been changed, as we are looking to bring two crew members along to provide a more professional documentary.
Thank you to Joy Church for your donation via mail :)
Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States in 2010 based on the 69,071
death certificates in which diabetes was listed as the underlying cause of death. In 2010, diabetes was
mentioned as a cause of death in a total of 234,051 certificates. - cdc.gov
Type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s own immune system attacking its pancreatic islet beta cells and requires daily injections of insulin to regulate the patient’s blood glucose levels. A new method described in BioMed Central’s open access journal BMC Medicine uses stem cells from cord blood to re-educate a diabetic’s own T cells and consequently restart pancreatic function reducing the need for insulin. -LifeNews.com
The type of procedure I will receive, will take cells directly from my bone marrow, a much more direct approach, which does not require me to take immune suppression drugs. South Korea has a high success rate, the procedure is Korean FDA approved.
Thanks so much for the support. I believe this is the beginning for all those who are suffering from chronic illnesses.
I hope to create a documentary on my experience. We have pitched the idea and hope to hear back soon.
29.1 million of Americans have diabetes, a large portion being type 1 diabetes, an unpreventable autoimmune disease. Diabetes costs 245 billion U.S. dollars yearly. Hundreds of thousands of death certificates list diabetes as the cause of death.

We will be following a young diabetic on her journey to recieve
an innovative, Korean FDA approved procedure, an adult stem cell procedure which derives stem cells from her own bone marrow. We to document the entire experience and expose it to its highest potential, to educate and inform those who may want to go on the same journey and to expose the possibilities that lie within our own bodies. Our hope is that this procedure, along with our documentation, will blaze the trail, not only for diabetics, but for anyone suffering from disease.
The procedure will take place at The Han In Kwon Internal Medicine Clinic in Seoul South Korea. Dr. Han will extract bone marrow and prepare the cells over a month's time. We will return to the states during this period, then will return to have the cells administered through an IV. These unspecialized cells will typically go where they sense the body needs them. In my
her case, the pancreas, to create the insulin producing cells that were destroyed years ago.
Stem cells are "original" cells. When we are conceived, we start out as a bundle of stem cells. These cells begin to specialize into every type of body part, heart, lungs, eyes, and other cells and tissue that are needed. The amazing thing is that we all have stem cells available to us in our own bodies. No immune suppression required. This is considered a successful procedure in South Korea for more than just diabetes. It is credited for curing a number of diseases such as COPD, cardiac muscle damage, and has the potential to cure much more.
The down side to this procedure, is that it is very expensive. One procedure, which includes the initial harvest and administration, is 29,811. Banking the cells is 3,000 and up depending on the time period of banking, which can be as long as 20 years. This is necessary because, occasionally, more than one treatment is needed. One round trip flight for two reaches 4,000. We will need to bring a translator along as well. Food and lodging in South korea are reasonable but still bring us up to the grand total of everything for the two trips , at 45,000.
We are now raisng money to bring two crew members along which will cost an additional 8,000 to bring on both trips.
We are asking for your help. The whole process,every high and low, every tear, will be documented and out there for the world to see. I want people to know. We will be documenting recovery and results as well. We believe that this is the beginning of the end of a lot of unnecessary suffering for so many ill adults and children.
Thanks for your support!
