Hello dear friends and family,
I am writing on behalf of my beautiful wife, Sharon, who has been battling Parkinson's Disease for the past eight years. (Please see video above)
I would like to start with saying that this is not something we wanted to have to do or were expecting. Yet unfortunately, her symptoms have progressed in the past couple of years to the point where we feel as if we need an alternative solution as other medications simply do not do enough. Thankfully, we have found one through a procedure through a company called StemGenex in California that takes adult stem cells and administers them to the brain to create new dopamine producing neurons (dopamine loss is the essential cause of Parkinson’s).
We have spoken to a few local neurologists and have been given ‘the green light’ on this procedure and truly believe that Sharon will experience a far happier life, unhindered by daily struggles such as simply being able to walk or drive.
We are asking for your support in this endeavor to help Sharon find healing and relief. She has always put other first (myself included) especially with our children...she is simply our world.
Thank you so much for considering, we love you all so very much and your help means everything! Thank you also to those who have already given us so much support and love, we wouldn’t be here without you.
With much Love,
List of Costs:
-Stem Cell Treatment: $16,900
-Hyperbaric Ox Chamber: $3,900 ( See below as to what this is)
-Flights and Expenses: $1,500
The hyperbaric oxygen chamber (HBOC) is a cutting edge treatment provides the most healthy atmosphere possible. One might picture a greenhouse filled with vibrant healthy plants. They thrive because a better atmosphere has been created for them to grow and flourish. So too, with the HBOC, the brain is flooded with oxygen, giving the newly implanted stem cells protection and optimum nurturing.
Sharon will be placed on a regimen of specific sessions from her home using the HBOC. The net effect is quite positive and one of the reasons we chose Stemgenex.
