MS treatment for Jason Dean

$23,650 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 195 people in 6 months
Hello everyone!

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 13 years ago after I went blind in one eye (Optic Bulbar Neuritis). It was a battle for sure and I've since got my eye sight back. It is not 100%, but I'm happy to see again.
As the years went on I had slowly developed a numb sensation in my arms that eventually made its way to all my limbs. Last year after I returned home with my band from being on tour, I noticed my legs were starting to get weak and I was feeling very fatigued. Playing shows began to take its toll on me as I was losing very specific motor skills in my right hand and my legs, in addition to the lack of energy. Those that have seen me play know I'm all about the energy and it was nowhere to be found. All my fears are starting to come true, I can not play drums to my full capacity anymore.
Also some of you know I am a magician and that is starting to be more difficult by the day because of specific motor skills needed. 
Walking has become a task in itself, let alone just standing still.
There is no cure for MS, but I have found a very promising treatment to get me back on track.
I was listening to a podcast/video by Joe Rogan and he had Doctor Neil Riordan on his show talking about stem cell treatments that had amazing results for MS.
So, I began to research and ask around about this sort of treatment and one of my good friends actually had stem cell treatments from Doctor Neil Riordan in Panama. Yes, I said in Panama City, this specific treatment is not available in the US. He was ecstatic about the experience and what has happened so far with his treatments.
Many drugs are available for MS but nothing that will give me the quality of life back to be able to play drums again.
So here I am, I need help getting to Panama and raising money for treatment. It will cost me $30,000 for the stem cell treatment and cost to get to Panama.
Below, I will leave a link to the podcast that I first saw about the specific stem cell treatment. It will give you better specifics about why I must fly out of the country to receive the treatment as well as what the treatment is.
You will find a link to the website where you can find details about the Doctor, stem cell treatments, and what it can do for MS.

This is a very awkward thing for me, I’m used to people asking me for help. I never thought I would be in this position myself.
I am an entertainer that relies on my limbs to make a living, magic and music is my life.
Thank you for supporting me in all my endeavors over the years.

Love and gratitude to everyone,
Jason Dean

Jason here, what a week it’s been.
I’m very excited as I leave for The Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama today! This has been a very long journey for me and I wouldn’t even know what to do without everyone’s help. I’m going to take pictures and video so everyone can see the adventure I’m on.

I will receive 120million expanded allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (intravenous administration) and 12million expanded allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (perilymphatic administration).
Then I will have two days of physical therapy to complete my full treatment.

My amazing lady and my awesome mother, will be traveling with me.
I want to thank Brad Stonner and his wife Anna with helping me get a ride to panama:)
I truly love you both.

Again, everyone THANK YOU!

Here we go!

With the money raised from the benefit and donations from friends and family, I will be going to get the treatment I need. Yesterday, I was able to wire the money and I have been informed I am set! I will be heading to Panama Feb. 11th-16th, two days of stem cells and two days of physical therapy. I will be taking tons of photos and do as many updates as I can while in Panama to keep everyone up to date on this journey. I’m still receiving donations and another benefit is being put together for me, this will help me out on bills until I can get back to work.
Everyone, I don’t know what I would have done without you. I know I’ve said thank you a million times now, but I need you to understand what you have done for my life and my family. So again I say, THANK YOU!
With massive amounts of love and gratitude,
Jason

As of right now I put down a deposit to hold a date for the second week of Feb. as they are constantly being booked up.
Thank you everyone for continuing to share and donate as I am almost to my goal.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, you all have made mine one of the best ever!
