    Story

    Hi I have M.S. (Multiple sclerosis) and I'm trying to stop been wheelchair bound for the rest of my life. I have had this illness for over 8 years, and during the last 2 years I have been more reliant on a walking stick and wheelchair. I have not been able to work for the last 2 years and would like to be able to work again! As my family are missing out on all the love and financial things I used to provide for them. I'm not the happy person I once was and would like to be again.

    I want to be rid of this horrible illness that is taking over and ruining mine and my family's life's! This is a new treatment in Mexico that is the cheapest around, it is available in other countries at a cost of between £50000-£150000. It is just become available on the nhs in England but I have been told that I am to ill to be considered for treatment here, basically I'm a lost cause! This treatment will not make me like I once was, but it will halt the progress of this illness.

    I will not see any significant changes within 12-18 months but I may have some improvement in my disability. But the M.S will be halted straight away. But I'm sure people will be able to see me starting to be the happy, out going, hard working person I once was! As I start to build my confidence back up after losing it all. I know I won't be running any marathons straight away! But I'm fed up of every day feeling like I have run one, and this treatment will stop that feeling.

    The money will be spent on treatment at clinic Ruiz in Mexico. The treatment will be over a period of 28 days. They remove my stem cells, freeze them, administering chemotherapy, then they replant my stem cells, killing off my immune system, to reboot my body, give me more chemotherapy and hey presto my m.s. Has been halted! And the money spent starts to get my life back on track 😀 Sound so easy right? Well I hope so.
