Stem cell therapy

One year ago, I was diagnosed with MS. It took years for me to finally get diagnosed. Every other doctor just took my co pay and shuffled me out the door...

'Til half my body went numb.

By this time the damage was pretty extensive. I have a brain lesion in between the two hemisphere of my brain. I have a large lesion between c4 and c5 in my spine.

Ever day of my life my body tingles and burns. Neuropathy is extensive and very painful, especially in my hands. Every day my eyes dialate incorrectly and my vision is obscured as though I'm on a psychedelic drug.

My relapses, when those lesions swell, happen about once a month. They cause numbness, paralysis, searing pain and occasionally spasms and seizures.

My doctors claim there is nothing they can do but dope me up to mitigate the symptoms. They tried disease modifying drugs and almost killed me. I thought I was out of options.

Now, I'm no slave to this problem. I am a father to a three year old. I am a full time architectural student at my local university. I am a full time employee. I have a life. A rich life.

But I'm getting worse with each relapse.
Then I heard about a study being done and talked to a team doing some cutting edge treatments.
They talked about improvement.

They talked about reducing lesion size.

They are the first since diagnosis to talk about anything other than future paralysis and brain damage.

But I'm a working, single dad student and the therapy is expensive. I have NEVER in my life begged or asked for a hand out.

But my times running out. And it's time to swallow pride.

I don't know if this can fix my problems. It's just stem cells... but I'm giving every last dime I have to this thing because for the first time

There's a chance at a normal life.

Thank you for reading this
If you have a dime you could spare I'd be eternally grateful.
