For our Super Nathan's needed Stem Cell Transplant
Nathan was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy on October 2011. In despite of therapies and medications that he started taking since then, his progression with the disease process is beyond its timeline. Nathan now can barely walk around the house even with his walker. He can no longer use the bathroom unassisted. If we can't get to him quick enough to help him move around the house, he crawls. He has a manual wheelchair but he can't use it inside our house because our doors and bathrooms are not wide enough for it. His bones are becoming brittle and his caps are loose, causing him pains which seem to be getting worst, as well. After our last visit with his neurologist last week, with x-rays and further blood test results, we were adviced that our only option for now is to consider a stem cell transplant for him. We have medical insurance but this procedure is not covered at all. He would need more than one procedure which would cost around $25,000 the first time, the next ones later on could cost lesser than that.Stem cell transplant is not a cure by any means but this will slow down Nathan's quick progression with the disease process. While he is not completely wheelchair-bound at the moment, a stem cell transplant for him is very promising in keeping him mobile for a while.Other families who have taken advantage of this procedure are extremely grateful because of a better quality of life stem cell transplant had given their sons.In despite of what Nathan goes through with his battles with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, he remains to be the sweetest, most caring, happy, and loving kid. Not even once that he got angry when he can't do kids his age can do like run, jump, and/or climb around. Nathan will be 8yrs old this December, a stem cell transplant would give him a chance to still get to use his legs and most of all, enjoy better quality of life. In the kindness of your heart, any amount is greatly appreciated! Please help us continue bringing those smiles out in his face.Thank you very much and God Bless!
