https://www.facebook.com/ColtonMittmanFundraiser/ Could you imagine if just donating $1 could possibly help change a little boys whole life? On June 2, 2009 a little boy was born at just 25 weeks weighing only 1 pound, 4 ounces and is considered by many to be a “miracle boy.” Colton Mittman, one of the happiest and most loving little boys you will ever meet, was diagnosed with Spastic Cerebral Palsy at the age of 2. With that being said, many doctors believed he would never be able to walk or talk, but back in September of 2013 we were able to raise enough money to be able to take Colton down to Panama for his first ever Stem Cell Treatment. At the time, many of his doctors believed it would not help him and were very against the procedure until he came back. Only 3 months after the treatment Colton had started walking and babbling more. An  MRI after returning has shown a 20% restoration of the damaged brain tissue. Since then he has been leaving doctors speechless by his outstanding improvement in his ability to move about. Thanks to an anonymous donor the treatment will be covered so this time we only need to raise about $3000 for the airfare to  Panama in hopes that this second round of the treatment more of his brain damage will be repaired, giving him the chance to learn how to communicate verbally to better his quality of life. Please check out Colton's Facebook page and give him a like to stay up to date. All his progress from raising funds for the first Stem Cell treatment to all his progress his located on his page. You will truly be amazed by this miracle boy! Thank you all for your donations.
