MRS battling MS

In 1994 I would run five miles with my bother , Keith.  My right leg would drag behind me. I also was having double vision. The dragging leg and the double vision were the signs of my medical issue.  
I told my mom of the vision problem and she gave me her opthalmologist appointment. The doctor did not   say what the issue was - but he knew. He sent me to get an MRI. This was the first of, at the  least, 15 MRI's I have had done. The results have always been the same - Multiple Sclerosis.
I was dating Meg Mullen at the time and she married me. Twenty six years later, she is by my side along with our four children , Peter, Timothy,  Marc Jr and Rachel.
The Multiple Sclerosis  was first Relapsing Remitting (Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS). Recently, my symptoms have gradually worsened. The MS seems to be transitioning into Secondary-Progressive MS (SPMS).  I have submitted an application to Giostar in Mexico for a stem a cell transplant.
I am asking for my friends to help me raise funds for the transplant. This is NOT covered by my insurance.
This page is to raise funds to send me to Mexico for the  stem cell transplant, www.giostar.com 
I  am scheduled to travel to Mexico,  Los Algodones,
December 4-7.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I went to Mexico for the first treatment.  This did NOT go well.  I contracted Spinal Meningitis while there.

My neurologist has advised me not to go back (which I am not).

I am following his advice and direction.

I am not going back to Giostar.

I will be chaging my medication to GILENYA. 

All unused funds and further donations will be used for my medical treatments and medical bills.
