Gary's Stem Cell Treatments

I want to thank my brother, Tim Hodsdon for creating this donations page to help cover the cost of my stem cell treatments.  I have been fighting cancer since 2008, but that fight has recently been complicated by another, even more severe disease that developed 4 weeks after  a failed back surgury I had in January of 2017  - Adhesive Arachnoiditis .  

AA, is a progressive spinal cord/nervous system disorder.  All the doctors told me it is INCURABLE.  It twists the nerves in my spine, pelvis and legs into tight bundles of scar tissue, called 'clumps'', which put immense pressure on the trapped nerves.  

It causes unrelenting deep pain and difficulty in walking, sitting and standing.   Sometimes the pain is so bad I can't walk or sit at all, so I eventually have to lie down for a large part of each day.   I live in constant pain and often have trouble retreating into sleep, which eludes me most nights.

Most days [and nights] I spend in my reclining chair or in my bed, watching the seasons come and go.   On my infrequent, best days I can manage to slow-walk around the block 2-3 times before getting home and collapsing into my chair or heading for bed.  

This disorder, for which there has been no cure until very recently, is life-changing for everyone affected, whether patient, family, or caregiver.

What is the solution?  About a year ago, non-funded researchers and private clinics began studying and treating AA with radical stem cell treatments that have proven to be extremely effective against not only AA, but also against the particular cancer I have been fighting all these years.  

THIS IS A MIRACLE TREATMENT that really works, with significant numbers of patients experiencing the wonder of a cure for an incurable disorder.  Since these trials are not funded they depend on their patients to self-fund their treatments.  This is the only way research can continue to move forward for people who would otherwise be trapped for life in a continuous state of pain and complete disability.

The cost for these treatments, including travel costs, hotels, food and of course, the treatment iteslf, is estimated at $9,500.   Time is of the essence as the disease progresses on a daily basis and costs will rise the longer we wait.  You say you want to know more?  OK

Here's how it works [ Once we arrive at the clinic].

Step 1) My own stem cells are harvested via aspiration from my hip.

Step 2: The harvested stem cells are processed.

Step 3) The processed stem cells are reintroduced back into my body via injection into the back, along both sides of the spine from top to bottom.

Step 4) Some stem cells are processed differently and injected via IV.

The stem cells go to work over the next several months, repairing damage and neutralizing the disease  to prevent any future damage.  And the bonus is, the treatment may also have a major impact on my cancer. A TWO-FER!

My, and my entire family appreciation is boundless for all of your donations to help defray the costs for this medical miracle. Thank you for helping me get my life back on track.

Oh yes!  I almost forgot.  Please share this to your Facebook, Twitter, etc.  The more we are shared the faster this all can happen.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
