Stem Cell Treatment For Arthritis

Mona is only 47 years old, lives in Sweden and has been suffering from chronic arthritis in both her hips for over 5 years. This developed as a result of many years playing football as well as coaching children in football. In the last two years Mona's hips have seriously deteriorated to the point where she now suffers chronic pain both day and night.  She has problems walking and moving around easily. She finds it difficult to get a comfortable position to sleep at night due to the pain and subsequently suffers from poor sleep, high stress and fatigue. As a result of her condition Mona has been unable to work for the last 2 years resulting in a poor economic situation.

Mona's hip condition requires a full replacement of both hips in the near future, but there are very long waiting lists and with the acute pain she experiences everyday, waiting indefinitely for surgery is no longer an option. When the pain becomes unbearable she must resort to strong pain killers which then produce extreme side effects, such as anxiety attacks,  nightmares, stomach pain, nausea and migraine headaches.

Mona's feels desperate as she would rather not have such an invasive surgery as a hip replacement is, so she has been looking at alternative treatments. Mona found a Stem Cell Clinic in Norway that specialises in joint pain especially hips and knees. This clinic believes they can help reduce Mona's pain from a 10 to 2-3 through stem cells injections. This involves weekly trips to Norway for the treatments.

The cost for the stem cell injections with travel costs from Sweden to Norway is 30,000kr. This amounts to 5 trips to Norway for 5 injections in each hip.

Mona is so young and would like to live her full potential of getting back to work, exercising, walking, living and experiencing life. As her partner I've seen her struggling to do the things many of us take for granted so please please give as much or as little as you can for her treatment. Every donation will be appreciated. 

Thank you for your donations and for helping Mona live again.
