Help Jeff get treatment for ALS.

I am Andrew, a Paramedic in Lee County, and I am helping to raise money for a friend in need.

Jeff Bower and his wife Janah are nurses in the ER in Fort Myers. Jeff has recently been diagnosed with ALS after a year of increasing weakness. There is not much that can be done for this in the United States. However, evidence supports stem cell use, in a certain treatment regimen, can stop or slow deterioration  and allow him to continue working, supporting his family and helping the sick and injured in Fort Myers, FL.

The treatments are done in high doses over many days totaling billions of stem cells. In comparison, other treatments may use 20,000 stem cells. This extreme treatment is very expensive, totaling $80,000. The cost is staggering and insurance does not cover any of it. This means it must be done in cash. 

To worsen the financial forecast, it has to be done overseas. That means airfare ($1,500) transportation(500), rental housing ($1,500) and food expenses ($1,500). 

Expect to see a full breakdown of how much money is spent and on what it is spent on. Also expect to see updates on progress and health.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.
