    Story

    After being diagnosed with relapse remitting multiple sclerosis in Dec 14 life has definitely not been the same. Following an aggressive relapse that started in January 2016 when I was left unable to walk & move my right arm & leg I was hospitalised in the uk & decided I needed to do something. I did a lot of research & the drugs being offered to me in the UK "might" slow down the progression of this disabling condition but can't stop it, however the side effects are harsh: secondary auto immune diseases, kidney & liver damage, bleeding, thyroid problems....I decided that's not the road I want to take.

    I've been researching a treatment called HSCT. In HSCT for MS, hematopoietic (blood cell-producing) stem cells, which are derived from a person's own (“autologous”) bone marrow or blood, are collected & stored, & the rest of the individual's immune cells are depleted by chemotherapy. Then the stored hematopoietic stem cells are reintroduced to the body. This treatment is showing great promise & hope, it stops the progression and relapses due to the new healthy immune system. This is the most effective treatment for MS. The criteria is very strict for the treatment on the NHS so, I'm on a waiting list to go for this life changing treatment in Mexico. I need help to raise the funds, please donate if you can. I want my life back.
