Help Crystal Regain Her Vision

Crystal, 27 and used to be able to walk and see.  But after her diagnosis of Friedreichs Ataxia at 13 years of age she lost full mobility in her legs and feet which required the use of a wheelchair.  And then she gradually also, lost her sight. She was then diagnosed with Optic Atrophy.  This affects the optic nerves which carry impulses from the eye to the brain.  She may not ever get her mobility back but THERE IS HOPE her vision can be restored.  

Hope that with stem cell surgery she can once again see the faces of her loved ones and simply watch TV or a movie.  (All the things we take for granted.)  

"My name is Selaine and I'm Crystals's caregiver.  She is absolutely the sweetest person, thinking of others before herself all the time and I want to help her in anyway I can and so, I helped Debra and Craig set up this site"

 The procedure alone is $20,000 (excluding travel expenses) so I am asking for help as any donations will be greatly appreciated.  Please consider making a donation today as she is anxious and hopeful that once again she will have her vision back, which will greatly enhance her quality of life.

A sincere thank you from all of Crystals family and friends.
