Story

My Name is Michelle Filipe, I'm 39, a mum to 2 amazing kids Gio 19 & Liliana 6. I also have an amazing supportive partner.

I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis ( RA) for almost 10 years.

R A is an autoimmune disease. This means your immune system – which usually fights infection – attacks the cells that line your joints by mistake, making the joints swollen, stiff and painful.Over time, this can damage the joint itself, the cartilage and nearby bone. It also effects your organs.

While pregnant with Liliana my RA almost went away, after giving birth it came back with a vengeance

I became a client for an amazing charity called Brighter Futures that really helped me in those dark times. Having this disease, not having family in jersey and a new born was really hard on me and the family.

My mental health has been up and down due to the pain and slowly losing movement in my joints, which means that I have had to rely on those closest to me for support. My partner has had to step up and help more with everything. Grateful for u all

This disease over time has caused damage to my joints mainly down my left side, Knee, hip, elbow, wrist it has also has effected my right elbow, hand and lower back.

I wanted to go to the UK however lipogems stem cell isn't the best for auto immune so the stem cell treatment in Panama seems to be the way forward. It helps with ra, ms, autism and lots more with some amazing results.

So I am putting myself out there and making myself vulnerable which isn't easy. Get this treatment before I hit 40 would be amazing. I want to keep walking for as long as I can. For me and my familia.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and any donation given. If you are unable to donate please just share as someone who sees this on your page maybe able to

    After being inboxed by a local lady and shown lots of you tube clips and researching the clinic in Panama. Also talking to a lady in the US who has had the treatment for RA. I have decided that this will be the best place to go. Especially with the amount of damage I have. The clinic on Harley street is amazing however the more I read up on lipogems the more I realize that it isn't the best for autoimmune. Raising the extra money is the best way forward for me right now. Please help me get there xx love n hugs for all the support so far. Xx
