For the past two years, Lori has been having symptoms no one could explain.
In January of 2017, Lori was diagnoised with Multiple System Atrophy. Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a rare, degenerative neurological disorder affecting your body's involuntary (autonomic) functions, including blood pressure, breathing, bladder function and muscle control. MSA shares many Parkinson's disease-like symptoms, such as slow movement, rigid muscles and poor balance. Lori was once athletic and energetic, now she can barely walk and communicate correctly. There's no cure for multiple system atrophy. Managing the disease involves treating signs and symptoms to make her as comfortable as possible and to maintain her body functions. Because there is no medicine to help, Lori wants to try something else which is called Stem Cell Therapy. Stem Cell Therapy treatment is located in Arizona, US. Stem cells can be either injected into the bloodstream and allowed to migrate to injured brain areas or they can be surgically transplanted into the brain, where they might differentiate into dopamine producing cells. Stem Cell Therapy can help Lori walk and communicate correctly again. Lori is loved by many people and doesn't want to give up on her life just yet.All funds donated will go towards Stem Cell Therapy treatment and travel cost. Please help us with Lori's MSA journey and getting her life back.
