Most of the time, Haven is a happy and cheerful boy with a lot of smiles although he is non-verbal. Because he is unable to talk, it is nearly impossible to express and communicate his feeling and even only needs or his desires. We, as a parent, are doing all we can to help promote Haven's development in every way possible. We even tried to believe in something supernatural. We moved all the way from Asia to California because of the services and resources are way better here than in Asia.
On June 5th, 2015, he started hitting and kicking himself, severe self-injury behavior began on this day. Sometimes good and sometimes very bad and it could be awful. His aggression was not only toward himself but to us too. When it is calm, he is happy. We tried many ways to help him included calming oil, massage, energy works, behavior intervention, and medication. Yes, he is getting better, but the problems still exist. A lot of tears and sadness, we simply don't know what will happen.
We learned Stem cell from other parents. Many parents with autistic children had tried stem cell therapy. Many of them gain a lot regarding communication, social skill, and behavior management. Of course, this is not a guaranteed treatment, and stem cells do not cure autism. However, 0.1% hope is far better than hopeless. The Stem Cell is retrieved from one's own body and re-administered into the spine to promote brain regeneration. Therefore, the chance of the body rejecting it is eliminated. This is not a cure, though it can help relieve those symptoms and allow for children such as Haven's an opportunity to experience the best possible life. This treatment can assist with things such as social awareness, interaction with peers, response to commands, fine motor activity, and both self-stimulatory behavior and irrelevant speech can also be reduced.
Stem cell therapy is not provided by insurance and not even in the USA. Patient will have to pay out of pocket, and it's relatively pricey. Each treatment at about USD20000 and the patient require going average every 8 months. We don't know how many times Haven will go but we want to let him go at least once and see his response. We need your help, and any contribution will be greatly appreciated.
