stem cell treatment

I'm a 38 year old mom of 2 beautiful girls. In 2008 I had brain surgery to remove a possible  tumor in my brain, during my procedure they realized I did not have a tumor but lesions in my brain tissue, they performed a biopsy.After I awoke from my surgery everything seemed ok, but I then suffered a stroke, and 5 grand mal siezures.I was then left paralyzed on the left side of my body, I could not walk or move my arm, my face had a droop to it also. After 2 weeks in the hospital and physical therapy I was able to walk a little with assistance, and sent home before christmas. I was still not able to move my arm until about 2 months after that. I was then diagnosed with a disease called Crystal Storing Histiocytosis of the brain. It is a very rare disease that doctors no little about, most people have it in their liver or kidneys. Mine is in my brain, the only known person to have this disease in the brain. I have discovered recently that stem cells can repair the damage of the stroke that has crippled me now and left me with a cane to walk, and 2 children to care for that I wish only to be able to gain mobility function back so that we can try and live as normal as life possible, without my children worrying that mommy will fall and hurt herself severly or worse.I am the mom it is MY job to watch over them and be able to pick them up when they fall. I know that it is a lot of money I am asking, but I would be ever so grateful to gain mobility and strength back into my body so that I can try and live as normal life as possible with my children and do the normal things parents do with their children, like just walking down the street without being winded. I thank you for your support in helping me reach my goal.
