Audrey's Stem Cells for Autism

33034740_1539368152352384_r.jpegAudrey was approved with her testing to go to the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama for a treatment for her Autism.

She will be getting 60 million expanded allogeneic mesenchymal  stem cells.

This facility has been treating children with autism using donor mesenchymal stem cells derived out of umbilical cord tissue from live healthy births for the past 12 years.

We watched many testimonies of children having significant improvement after this therapy.

She has had a lot of progress over the last two years with taking her vitamins calcium, magnesium, Zinc,  D-3, B-12, Folinic acid, and probiotics. She has also been on a gluten free and dairy free diet over the past year. This is the next step to treat her Autism.  Audrey was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 years old.

She did not speak till she was 2 and a half years old. She spoke her first word "Ball" at her Language Link therapy. We did not believe them when they told us and we were hopeful that she would progress more through therapies and treatment.  She is speaking now with a bit more vocabulary everyday. Taking her off the gluten, the B12 shots and Folinic acid have helped her progress the most.

Audrey has a really good memory and will tell me very quickly if I promised her Chick-Fila on Saturday. We are struggling with her repetitive behaviors and need her to focus more when she is working on tasks. Her mind can wonder off and it is hard to get her back to what she needs to be doing.

Her father was in the Army so we traveled around a lot while she was young. We weren't sure exactly what to do and didn't have to many people to support us with her issues. Since we moved to Florida we have discovered other families with Autistic children. The support that we get from her school and the other parents that are dealing with the same issues help us focus on her recovery. Finding new ways to help her and give her a chance at a better life. Since Audrey is a female it is not as common and understanding how her treatment will help guide her is different. We have started a support group with other mothers in the community Sweethearts on the Spectrum and going to the meet ups with the other moms helps focus on ways to help Audrey.

We are hoping that going to Panama will help her and give her a better chance at a more normal life.

Many people who have gone through these treatments have came back with dramatic results.
33034740_1541027358677582_r.jpegSince Audrey is 7 years old this is the best age to have this treatment.

She is young enough to have the treatment work and we still have time to give her therapy when she comes back to give her the best chance to be the best she can be.

Her brain is still forming and the stem cells could make the connections that she doesn't have.

This could be life changing for her.

I want to thank Audreys sister Kailynn for selling M&Ms, sour patch kids, and Skittles at her school EMBASSY Creek Elementary. The students donations have already raised $118.50 so far. Thank you to the parents, students, and teachers who have donated and contributed to Audrey's treatment.  33034740_1539787795237109_r.jpeg
Kailynn has a positive outlook on her sisters future and with this help her sister can reach more milestones. 

Price of  the treatment is $16,825.00. Flight for three people total around $660 with Spirit Airlines.

We have received some donations from her uncles that are helping her get closer to her treatment in November. Thank you Uncle Juan for your private donation  of $3,000 directly to the stem cell institute. Your donation will help Audrey have a better chance at a more normal life.

I am currently working part time for Broward County. My husband is a disabled veteran with 17 years served. He was injured in Iraq and we are living on a fixed income currently. I am hoping my job will lead to a full time opportunity with the county. We are asking for help for our daughter if you are able ...please share  her story so she can get to Panama for this treatment. We love you Audrey and hope and pray for your recovery and the bright future you have ahead of you. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your love, support and prayers.
