Bob Frank suffered a series of strokes in May of 2016. He has had some improvement but he cannot get out of bed or get around without help. Because of his strokes the left side of his body is virtually immobile. He has had rehab and caretakers helping him but there is only so much they can do. He and his wife, Suzanne, have found a glimmer of hope in experimental stem cell therapy.
The doctors at Magnolia Medical Center are using regenerative stem cell therapy. The stem cells come from pregnant women that donate them. So, stem cells for dummies version is that the stem cells have the ability to develop into as my other type of cell and they begin healing the injured tissues. The stem cells begin to replace the damaged cells caused by stroke.
This opportunity for Bob is a Godsend. He has exhausted benefits from physical and occupational therapies. The results from stem cell therapy are phenominal and Bob Frank deserves this chance.
Since his stroke, the medical bills have been piling up and insurance will only cover so much. The cost for this chance at getting his life back with stem cell therapy is upwards of $6000.
This does not include all the other care he needs on a daily basis. Bob and Suzanne have an amazing community of family and friends surrounding them and help with simple things like mowing the grass.
This is different. There has not been this much hope that Bob can recover and get his life back. Please give what you can to get Bob closer to mobility. Try it once, try to get out of bed or get to the bathroom with only one hand and one leg. Extremely difficult to do for Bob. The simple things that we take for granted. Please give what you can. With your help, Bob can start to heal and continue to create beautiful art. Thank you for your support whether it be financial or emotional or both.
