Help Jane Walk & Be Well Again

Jane Gould is a brilliant woman, mother, daughter, sister, partner, teacher and friend. She lives with Multiple Sclerosis  and its challenges everyday. Just getting out of bed is difficult. Her mobility is becoming increasingly limited.

She now walks with a cane or crutches and only to and from where she needs to be. Getting in and out of the car is exhausting, stairs have become an almost unbearable task. Those are some of the obvious and visible signs. There are invisible symptoms as well such as numbness, tingling, loss of balance and depression, and others are too personal to post. And then there is the fact that any illness or infection, no matter how minor, exacerbates her symptoms leaving her feeling lifeless.

Still Jane infects everyone around her with her spirited energy and lust for life. She is a beloved teacher to her middle school students and perseveres despite her challenges, she just earned her Masters in education and has been asked to teach the Masters class next semester. Please help us help her to have an amazing opportunity to treat this disease and live her life to the fullest.

The Treatment:
 
Researchers and doctors have had incredibly positive results from Stem Cell therapy.  

The Way it Works: 

The stem cells go where they are needed when injected into the body. The belief is that when  injected into the body of someone suffering from a disease, those cells find and heal the sick cells.  

Our Mission:

We are commited to seeing this through so that Jane has the opportunity to continue to be present in all the amazing ways that she is for her friends, her fiance, her family, her gaggle of 7th graders and most importantly her two teenage kids.

Note from Jane:

Sixteen years ago I was diagnosed with relapse remitting MS, the type that comes and goes. In June my neurologist told me I now have secondary progressive MS which just gets worse. I have practiced yoga for many years, but now cannot even bend over. 

When I heard about stem-cell treatment, it resonated completely with me. There are no side-effects. The only thing that can go wrong is that it doesn't work. And if it does work, I can show others how it has helped me which in turn could help them!

Last year I watched a dear friend pass away in his early 40s from progressive MS. When he died, he could no longer eat, swallow, hold his neck up properly, or talk very well. It was devastating to see him deteriorate. I don't want that to happen to me or for my children to see me like that, or for anyone to go through that. This treatment is my one chance. At this time this is all there is available to me. I refuse to sit by and let the MS win.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. Words cannot express my gratitude.
