MS Stem Cell procedure

I would like to start when I was 6 months old. You see I was born with three kidneys and one of them was failing and causing another one to fail as well. The doctors here in Nevada said I was just a quiet baby and nothing was wrong. Luckily a nurse told my mom that she should get a second opinion from San Diego pediatric center. The doctors in California saved my life and that nurse that told my mom to take me. About 9 or so years later, I can't remember how old I was, I had a cyst on one of my ovaries. I had surgery to remove it and I was told the ovary deteriorated but they've removed the cyst and what was left, but they also saw a cyst on my other ovary, but did nothing about it. Then a few years later I'm back at the hospital for the same surgery for my other ovary. I've always wanted kids so this was extremely hard for me to wrap my mind around. I'm not even totally sure I'm over it to this day but I tell myself it is what it is. Then when I'm 24 I was walking like I was drunk all the time I could not walk normal. The first doctor says he doesn't know what it is. The 2nd doctor basically tells me I better hope it's not MS because that's a very expensive disease to have, so that didn't help. I went back to the first doctor and he sent me to get a MRI and a neurologist. After my MRI the nuero office called to tell me that the MRI showed abnormalities and I needed to make an appointment to talk to the doctor about it. They then proceeded to tell me that the next appointment available was a month away. I was left in tears, scared and frankly pissed that someone could do something like that. I called them bawling my eyes out a few mins later because I was scared of what was on my brain, they ultimately made time for me to come in the next day. I was in Michigan at that time, and it was October so the ground was covered in snow and ice. So it left me stuck inside for months. I don't know if you know this but the saying "A body in motion stays in motion" Well with MS this is more true than ever. I moved back home (Nevada) in April 2014. I realize it's one extreme to another , but my life was here all my friends and everyone. From then I've needed a walker to get around but with changing my shot meds walking became impossible. I now use a wheelchair when I leave the house and a power chair in the house. I recently signed up for Life Alert because I can't always have someone here. So now I'm 29 years old and I hear about this place called Stemgenex. What they do is stem cell work. It's a 3-day process but what they do is life changing. Especially for people with MS. Check it out at stemgenex.com The first step is a mini liposuction to extract fat and then they take your stem cells from your fat. They somehow fix your stem cells (correct them if you will). Then they are reinserted through an IV and what that does is the fixed stem cells put back in your body start fixing the other stem cells in your body. It's not a cure but it's supposed to help tremendously. Not only do they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. I've only seen good results on their reviews from people who have had it done. Because they are using your own stem cells there's no chance for rejection. This procedure could be life changing and insurance companies need to recognize this but, until then I'm asking for your help. I dream of walking again and I can't do that without your help. Thank you so much for anything you can help with.
