Four important points about Nova Cells Institute

cropped-nova-cells-bannerNova Cells Institute has never worked with embryonic or fetal stem cells, and never will. Embryonic and fetal stem cells can produce tumors (These are classified as pluripotent” which means they can form teratomas and other tumors in certain instances such as being injected into the central nervous system). The adult stem cells Nova Cells uses (umbilical cord, Wharton’s Jelly, placenta-derived, and a patient’s own bone marrow) are “multipotent” which limits the body cell types they can become (These stem cells do not form teratomas or such. Some private stem cell clinics in Europe and the US have injected adult stem cells into organs such as kidneys and eyes which caused problems and complications. Nova Cells Institute has never injected stem cells into an organ).
Let’s be very clear about these points and a few others:

(1) Nova Cells was established in 2009. There are other companies that came along later on which use “Nova” in their company title, but these are NOT affiliated in any way with Nova Cells Institute of Mexico (NCIM).

(2) Nova Cells Institute has never used embryonic or fetal stem cells and never will (They can form tumors under certain circumstances).

(3) Nova Cells Institute only uses multipotent adult stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, placental tissue, and a patient’s own bone marrow.

(4) Nova Cells Institute administers stem cells by intravenous drip (On rare occasions Nova Cells affiliated doctors recommend an intrathecal or spinal tap infusion of cells. Everything related to this is spelled out, a process called “informed consent”. Patients who prefer not to do this are given cells by intravenous or IV drip).

Rapid diabetic neuropathy turnaround for one of Nova Cells own MDs!

NCIM

During August one of Nova Cell’s MDs discovered to his own chagrin that his diabetic spawned neuropathy had progressed to the point he could no longer feel his own feet! He then did a single intravenous treatment with primed umbilical cord stem cells and the “Beacon Factor”. Within a week all sensation had returned to his feet and all other neuropathy symptoms were gone.

Quick results, quick report.

Improvements coming out of the gate for Evie Morgan (3 year old little girl with Spina bifida)

Three year old Evie Morgan has spina bifida and a Facebook page devoted to her journey to betterment at https://www.facebook.com/evieswarriors/. She was treated in Mexico by Nova Cells Institute doctors during April (2016) and soon her Mum, Heather, was emailing NCIM patient care coordinator, Grace Odgers PhD cand., a series of positive reports and video clips.  Heather also made posts to the aforementioned Facebook page — three of which follow further down below.

Evie Morgan - April 2016
Evie in Mexico getting IV infusion

 

On 4-27-16 Heather Morgan sent this email message to NCIM’s Grace Odgers, PhD cand.:

We felt very comfortable in the hospital. The room was very clean and had a private bathroom and sink. The pediatrician, Dr. Sanchez, was amazing and Evie loved her so much. Dr. Sanchez spoke great English and we had no trouble understanding her at all. The nurses were very attentive to whatever it was that Evie needed and Grace was always right there to translate for us if they had questions or we wanted to say something. The procedure was quick and painless. Within 5 minutes of receiving the treatment Evie began moving her toes. In the week and a half since treatment Evie is still able to move her toes on command (prior to treatment Evie only had very little involuntary movement of her toes), she is urinating more on her own and has very increased balance. She is now beginning to walk much longer distances with her canes (before she had a walker). At her next urology appointment we are going to be able to start discussing next steps in seeing how her bladder can fully function without medication. We are very pleased with the results we have seen thus far and can’t wait to see what else Evie is going to do!

This video was taken 2 days after stem cells. Evie is now able to move her toes on command! Before it was completely involuntary movement. Pardon her sassiness at the beginning 😂 Evie also has incredibly improved balance and is able to walk much longer distances with her canes! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬

Evie is showing improvements in her bladder function and abilities since yesterday. We aren’t sure if this is going to be a consistent thing but we are definitely watching now. This is nuts.

Sorry for lack of updates. Everything went perfectly and the treatment is now complete. Within minutes Evie was flexing her right ankle when asked and wiggling all 5 toes. Some of the movement is involuntary right now as the cells are being repaired. We will continue to see results for a few months. Thank you all for supporting our girl! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬

Video: Little boy with spina bifida is now moving the toes on both his feet

Rikky Foresman is a little boy with spina bifida who had his first stem cell treatment with Nova Cells Institute during early 2014. Last month (March 2016) he underwent another treatment with laboratory primed umbilical cord stem cells and NCIM’s unique & proprietary “Beacon Factor”. It has now been less than 3 weeks since Rikky’s treatment, and on March 29 (2016) his father posted a video of the boy moving the toes on both his feet on the family’s “Blazin’ for Rikky” Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BlazinforRikky/?fref=nf

It should also be noted that Rikky began feeling temperature changes in his legs and feet the very next day following his treatment (while at the beach).

Jane from the “Show Me” State of Missouri – Older lady with Parkinson’s disease & Lewy Body Dementia

MRI OF BRAIN - FREE MORGUEFILENote by Nova Cell’s patient educator & care facilitator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. cand., concerning Jane at the time she was picked up for transport to Mexico plus a brief summary of what took place after her Beacon Factor & stem cell treatments:

Jane arrived seated in a wheelchair with both hands and arms shaking, the left more so than the right. I knew from her history that she was no longer able to walk without assistance. Her son and her partner kind of lift and drag her from her wheelchair to other seating. She is incontinent and thus uses adult Pampers. Very thin ones. She came to treatment accompanied by her live-in partner and her son, both of whom are named Paul. She is given to having occasional hallucinations and is not aware of what is going on around her.

Jane was given large doses of the Beacon Factor by IV drip the first day in hospital. At night she asked to be helped to the restroom. Her partner and son helped her though she walked to the bathroom, and was not dragged.

The day after her stem cell infusion by both spinal tap and IV, Jane became more alert and began looking at her partner and son directly and was conversing with them. She didn’t say a whole lot but she was definitely more aware of everything and everyone around her. She even said “What is going on?”

Notes made by Jane’s son Paul and sent to NCIM:

Jan 20, 2016

1 pm PST, drove down from San Diego to TJ by biochemist Dr.  Abel Pena and Grace Odgers.

Checked into the hospital

3 pm PST: She ate some soup with lime Jell-O.

4 pm PST: The doctors put in an IV and began a saline drip. Mom took her usual medication.

5 pm PST: The doctor added the first dose of “The Beacon Factor”. We ordered dinner, tuna fish sandwiches, mixed fruit with bananas, mango and apples, some apple juice and water.

Mom seem to perk up while eating a lot, offering food to her partner and I while discussing how good she felt.

Tested her memory several times, which was still spotty, but she seemed concerned that she was “failing”.  Noticed that she had her eyes wide open and answered questions quickly, even though sometimes she didn’t make a lot of sense.  We both noticed she had more coherent thought processes and conversation.

7 pm PST: Mom took her final medication of the day.

Jan 21, 2016

6:30 am PST: Arrived back at the hospital. Mom was a bit frantic.

Really need an interpreter the whole time.

Changed bedding and dressings.

7:00 am PST: Mom was given her morning meds.

Took Mom to the restroom.

9:00 am PST: Mom seemed much more lucid, looking around.  Finally started to fall back to sleep after eating.

Changed bedding again and her dressings.

She slept until 11:30 am

1 pm PST: Anesthesiologist arrived and introduced himself and the fact he would be giving her a local in her back for the spinal puncture stem cell injection procedure.

2pm – 3pm PST: Talked with Mom who sat up on her own a lot, looked around a great deal, though she was still hallucinating and engaged in some nonsensical talk. Observed what was going on, and looked forward to going home.  During conversations she started in with “Come here doggie” and “There’s an old woman, really old, scary, staring at me”

Mom’s facial expressions became much more expressive. She was picking her lips and began folding her blankets and fidgeting a lot.

3 pm PST: The MD arrived to check her blood pressure, heart and blood oxygen level.

3:30 pm PST: Still waiting for them to take her in for her infusion.

She’s asking lots of questions and thinking very clearly after all the “Beacon Factor”.

4:00 pm PST: Mom left to go get stem cells.

5:20 pm PST: Mom was returned to the room, still very groggy from the anesthesia but doing well.

6:00 pm PST: Mom exhibited nearly normal behaviors (for her) of obsessing, and mumbling, but without leaning over as she usually did.  More eye movement and she was more concerned over recent events.

8:00 pm PST: Final dose of regular medicines for the day, after which she quickly became very groggy and tired.

9:00 pm PST: Returned to hotel room

Friday Jan 22, 2016

Returned home to Missouri after a day of travel.

Noticed several things, including obsessive behavior though not as extreme. Mom could be easily instructed to lean back, and she looked through the pages of magazines without tearing up the pages as she’d done in the past.  During changing, she lifted herself up as instructed.  Much more focus than before and she kept up conversations on current topics longer than had been true previously.

 

Read this before you settle on a stem cell or other treatment or therapy in Mexico or elsewhere

E-MAIL Free MS imageNova Cells Institute (NCIM) often gets emails from people who ask about stem cell and other therapies done elsewhere but which have little chance of turning things around for them. Here are some of these treatments along with comments by NCIM experts:

(1) Subcutaneous injections of stem cells to treat serious neurologic and other health challenges, including cancer. COMMENT: Subcutaneously injected stem cells may stimulate production of nerve growth factor or other compounds, but is an iffy way to stimulate healing or regeneration unless one is treating a problem very close to the injection site. Depending on the target tissue or organ, stem cells given by intravenous, intrathecal or other routes is more likely to have the desired therapeutic effect.

(2)  Nova Cells hears from people who have been told that biochemical signals from injured or diseased tissues will attract infused stem cells. This is true but what they aren’t being told is that these signals fade over time or the injected or infuse stem cells typically do not respond fully to them. COMMENT: Nova Cells director of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena, created a nontoxic homing/signal amplification (or “beacon”) compound that stimulates damaged or diseased tissues to send out stronger stem cell attractive signals while simultaneously sensitizing stem cells to recognize and respond to these signals. This compound was dubbed, appropriately enough, the “Beacon Factor” and positively no one has it or anything like it but Nova Cells. You can read more about it by clicking this link.

3) Emails occasionally come in from people saying they have been offered some kind of stem cell or other therapy (for a serious or intractable condition) in Mexico or elsewhere for between $1,000-4,000 USD. COMMENT: The old sayings “If it sounds too good to be true, it is” and “caveat emptor” (Buyer beware) certainly applies here. What NCIM has turned up down through the years (with respect to these “medical blue plate specials”) are instances in which: (a) MDs and others gave patients far fewer cells than claimed. In one particular instance, an office worker in a so-called stem cell clinic reported actually seeing a doctor take a vial labelled as containing 5 million umbilical cord stem cells and placing a small quantity from this into each of ten other vials, then administering these to patients who had paid to get 5 million stem cells each; (b) Patients were given “live cell therapy” (embryonic cells from animals typically lambs) but were told  they were getting human umbilical or other adult stem cells: (c) People with advanced, terminal cancer were given low cost treatments that had worked in lab dish or animal studies but bombed out in well designed & executed studies done in humans.

Doing medicine in Mexico is not cheap contrary to what some people think. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous doctors and clinics that have come up with “cost cutting measures” (like those above) who do a grave disservice to the patients they purport to help.

Abel at lab cabinetNova Cells is able to offer economically priced care, i.e., typically 30% less than other stem cell medicine operations, because it cut out the “middle men”, e.g., professional marketers and public relations people, and was able to get top flight MDs including surgeons on board who believe profits must take a backseat to getting people well. And, its head of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena (photo on right), who was trained (in part) by a leading US stem cell biologist, insists on processing & counting all stem cells himself and then priming or programming them (to become cell types that are more likely to effect healing or restoration in a given patient than unprimed stem cells). Dr. Pena personally handles all aspects of stem cell and Beacon Factor processing so as to insure that everything is done to the highest cGMP (manufacturing) standards and the patient is getting exactly what he or she paid for.

You’ve got to get stem cells to their target tissue or organ. No one but Nova Cells has a way to reliably pull this off.

DART BOARD - Free MorguefileIf you ever played the game of darts or used a crossbow you know the goal is to hit your target. In the world of stem cell medicine the same holds true. Virtually all stem cell therapy clinics and hospitals infuse or inject stem cells and count on biochemical signals produced by damaged or diseased tissues to “get the darts” (stem cells) to target. This works in principle, yes, but likely winds up with more stem cells lodged in non-target tissues than in the tissues or organ needing healing or restoration. This diminishes responses and outcomes as you would expect.

SONY DSC

But what if you switch on a homing system in the stem cells and amplify the signals in diseased or damaged tissues or organs? More “darts” or “biologic missiles” (stem cells) will hit their mark!

No stem cell clinic or such anywhere has a biologic “guidance & homing signal amplification system” that helps get stem cells to target. None, that is, but Nova Cells Institute which pulls this off thanks to its proprietary Beacon Factor. You can read more about the Beacon Factor by clicking this link.

You will also find information on the Beacon Factor in Nova Cells Institute’s  just published e-book titled “Heroic Medicine”, which is free for downloading at http://www.novacellsinstitute.com/pdf/Heroic%20Medicine.pdf

Dan Huntley’s amazing stroke turnaround the focus of a 5-21-15 Truro Daily News (Canada) article

http://www.trurodaily.com/News/Local/2015-05-20/article-4152986/Truro-man-gaining-strength-after-stem-cell-treatment/1

“I believe in it and I believe it’s the next generation in medicine, just like penicillin was,” said the Truro resident. “Regardless of what Canada and the U.S. says about it. They don’t know about it. I didn’t know about it, but I know about it now.”

TRURO DAILY NEWS ARTICLE ON DAN HUNTLEY - May  21, 2015 (2)

Canadian Lady with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and prefrontal dementia has an amazing response to her NCIM treatment

MRI OF BRAIN - FREE MORGUEFILEProgressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a devastating neurodegenerative disease that oftentimes robs its sufferers of their memories, balance and much more. As bad as this insidious disease is, things get even worse when the patient has other neurologic challenges such as Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) (which causes cell die off in various parts of the brain including in many instances those critical to thinking and executive decision).

Recently Nova Cells was approached by a Canadian gentleman whose wife has PSP, CBD and prefrontal dementia. NCIM doctors reviewed scans of this lady’s brain which revealed clear evidence that her frontal lobes had been impacted by her disease. Her husband was advised that if his wife was treated with primed stem cells and the Beacon Factor, she would probably see very mild improvements that would most likely not be manifest until about 2 months after her treatment.

As this was a “heroic measures” case and the husband did not have an exaggerated hopes concerning outcome (“If she could just relax her right arm and hand, which has caused her so much pain, and be understood a little more, this would be a Godsend”), the patient was booked for treatment on Thursday, April 30.

NCIM patient educator and care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. candidate was present during the lady’s treatment and had this to say about her condition  and response coming out of the gate:

The patient is really in a bad condition. But as soon as she came out of the surgery she was acknowledging things and people around her. She was locking  eyes with her husband and looking around which is something she had not done in a quite a while.

And, while her left arm and hand worked normally, her right arm was totally stiff and bent at the elbow and  drawn up against her chest. Her right hand formed a stiff inflexible fist which she could not open or relax at all.

About an hour after her treatment the attending physician came in to check on her and noticed that she was more alert and also that her right arm and hand were now relaxed! He took her hand and opened it more and more until it was fully extended. Then her husband asked her to shake hands with him and she did which amazed everyone!  We were all absolutely flabbergasted and emotional.

Soon the lady was smiling a lot, especially compared to when she first arrived. Prior to her treatment her face was somewhat stiff and expressionless and though she tried to smile, all she could manage was a forced half smile.

The doctors mentioned that when she went into the surgery room and they commenced treating her, she extended her totally stiff right leg about 2 minutes into her infusion.

The couple returned to Canada on Monday the 4th. Grace called the lady’s husband shortly after they got home and was told by him that his wife’s balance had improved significantly (He added that this is “great” because she has a history of falling).

Nova Cells will update this blog with new information and updates as they become available.

How Arthur Rechlo regained ground lost to Alzheimer’s cousin

NCIM N SIGN - JULY  2013Lewy Body Dementia is sometimes called “Alzheimer’s cousin”. Like Alzheimer’s it is an incurable brain disease that steadily whittles away most sufferers’ cognitive functions including their ability to focus, sleep well, or walk normally. Those with advanced LBD may have trouble swallowing liquids and solids.

Currently LBD affects about 1.4 million Americans. Both radio and TV personality Casey Kasem and Oscar® winning actor Robin Williams had LBD, and legendary Chicago Blackhawks coach Stan Matika was recently diagnosed with it.

LBD has no cure and the best medicine can presently do is relieve symptoms and alleviate patient suffering. The one thing doctors never see is a person with advanced LBD who can hardly walk or talk begin doing so. This all changed after 76 year old Canadian Arthur Rechlo had an experimental treatment in Mexico.

Many “giant steps” for Dani

NCIM N SIGN - JULY  2013Danielle “Dani” Smith was born in September 2006 with spina bifida in which her spinal cord did not completely form and resulted in partial paralysis from the waist down (Myelomeningocele). Since then this brave little girl has had five major operations including one to place her spinal cord back in her body, three brain surgeries, and double eye surgery. She then did two stem cell treatments and has undergone lots of physical therapy. And, during June 2013 she was treated in Mexico by Nova Cells using primed stem cells and its Beacon Factor. This treatment and Dani’s responses are reflected in this news release from October 2013: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/pdf/2013/10/05/press_release_364003.pdf

Dani has made many gains during the year since that news release was published including, most recently, something captured by her mother in a short video.

Facebook video & written update by Kara Underwood on her son, Bryson

Kara Underwood

Walking on the treadmill for the first time in his life! He’s in a harnessing system and only has braces from the knees down! We were told he would NEVER in his lifetime do this! All I have to say to every doctor that said NO and he CAN’T and he NEVER WILL is this…….we serve an awesome mighty God who says my son WILL WALK! He promises healing to all who ask for it as we receive it for our son in the name of Jesus!

Ryan Weber (Anoxic Brain Injury): Improvements began surfacing right after his treatment!

To Grace & All The Nova Cells Family:

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but it has been crazy busy. Mexico was great, nothing we imagined. The hospital where Ryan received his Stem Cell Treatment was so clean and I have been in many different hospitals here in the United States that was not as clean. We enjoyed the Mexican food as it was so flavorful. It made me sad to leave.

Ryan’s Stem Cell treatment was a great success! We noticed a huge difference in his muscle tone when they brought him back from the O.R. I cried when I first picked Ryan up because it was like holding a different kid. Ryan’s muscle tone is completely relaxed. Ryan has started back up with his outpatient physical therapy, warm water therapy and his massage appointments. His therapist were shocked at the difference in his muscle tone. Ryan has more control over his muscles.

Some of the things Ryan has done since his Stem Cell Treatment that he was not able to do before hand include:

HEAD CONTROL -He holds his head in a neutral position now and freely moves it to the left and right to look around. Before Stem Cells, Ryan would either have it tilted to one side or the other or front or back.

Weber 1

Picture taken the day after Ryan’s treatment at the San Diego Zoo. Look at how his arms are more bend, his legs are bend, head in right position. Ryan is actually sitting on the tusk.

HANDS – Ryan is able to open and close his hands freely. He regained the infant grasp reflex. With this he is able to reach out and grab items. Last night (8/26/14), he reached up and grabbed his Dad’s glasses and the later in the night he reached up and grabbed a handful of my hair. Before Stem Cells, Ryan kept his hands closed in a tight fist.

Weber 2

Picture of Ryan’s hands after his Stem Cell treatment

ARMS – Ryan actually is able to control both his arms equally. He is able to bend both elbows at his choice. Ryan is able to control his arms to reach to get items he wants. He still favors the left arm over the right but he was left handed dominant. Before Stem Cells, Ryan did have minimal control over the left arm and no control over the right arm.

Weber 3

Rick and Ryan at the beach before Ryan’s Stem cell treatment. Look at the stiff straight arms and tight closed fist hands

TRUNK (TORSO) – Ryan is able to sit in upright position on our lap with little help. When Ryan sits his chest and belly are straighter. Before Stem Cells, Ryan sat on our lap and needed a lot of help to stay in upright position and usually was tilted to one side or the other.

LEGS – Ryan legs are able to bend at the knees. He is able to control them better alternating them to walk in his walker and today walked in the pool with very little help by himself without a walker. When Ryan sits on our laps Ryan will bend his knees and sit like any other “scientifically Normal” child. When he lays on the floor he will pick up his legs to reposition them. Before Stem Cells, Ryan legs were mainly in a locked straight position. It was a battle to have him sit on our lap, put him in his car seat or in anything that required him to be in a bend position. He would walk in his walker but his body looked like an “S”.

MENTAL – Ryan is happier; he smiles and laughs more. I credit the Stem Cells as he is not always having to deal with very tight muscle which were probably really sore. When Ryan looks at you, he just smiles like he can actually see us clearly. Before he recognized the important people like his siblings, Grandparents and us as his parents but since his Stem Cell treatment-couple of our friends have talked to Ryan and this time Ryan interacted with them.

Most of Ryan’s improvements have been “small” but when you put all the small pieces together it makes for a huge improvement. It’s the little things that matter. I have to tell you a story about our day before we were picked up to go to Mexico.

We were all around and waiting for the phone call to tell us you were on your way. We were sitting outside at the patio set when I opened my pictures in my Phone to find the Creative Miracle Prayer I wanted to say before Ryan’s Stem Cell treatment. My phone usually opens to the last picture taken but that day when I opened my pictures, I started to cry because it automatically opened to a picture of Rick holding Ryan the day he was born back on 12/17/09 (See below). Rick asked what was wrong and I turned my phone to show him the picture that popped up and his jaw dropped. This is the picture that popped up.

I took that as a sign from above that Ryan would be born again. With all of Ryan’s improvements that is exactly what happened! We cannot thank you all enough for making this miracle happen for Ryan. I will send pictures in another email with little explanations of them. Just wanted to get this email of Ryan’s improvements to you. You may share this with everyone and if they want to follow Ryan his Facebook page is www.facebook.com/littlewarriorryan.

Thank you for giving us our little boy back! Lots of love.

Tatyana Kushniryuk shares wonderful news about her son Rowan’s response to treatment (Spina Bifida)

2014-03-19 14.28.35My son Roman was born with Spina Bifida in 2010. He is a L4-L5 level which means he cannot void on his own and does not have bowel control. His legs were very weak and he could not walk independently until he was 2.5 years old. He was able to hold on to a walker and push it slowly but the big change came after stem cells. He received his first stem cell treatment in China, and in Mexico twice since then. The latest change was from Mexico.

We arrived to San Diego a few days before treatment and checked into our hotel downtown. The next few days we spent exploring the city and taking a trip to the San Diego SeaWorld courtesy of Warrior Families Beating Spina Bifida Foundation. Roman really enjoyed that trip because he got to see the sea lions and pet the little sharks. He was not as excited about Shamu as I was.

IMAG0225

The next day we were escorted to Mexico across the border with Grace and Abel Pena. They were really great and picked us up in their car and drove us to the hospital. The staff greeted us as we registered in as patients, signed some papers and answered questions about his blood type etc. I can understand how some people may be cautious signing things and giving consent to doctors in a different country but since I knew Grace and Abel from our previous trip to Mexico, I was at ease.

The doctors and nurses were very accommodating and made sure we were comfortable with our room and the procedure. It was much faster than I remember it the first time. The anesthesiologist and doctors talked about how they would only put him to sleep for a very short time and not keep him under sedation when not necessary. They had performed the spinal taps many times and knew their jobs very well. I felt confident in their care and did not have second thoughts about the procedure. I only wish that Roman cooperated as well as I thought he would. He did not like the taste of versed (the relaxing serum before procedures) so we opted to take him without it to the procedure room. The hospital has the coolest stair case that has a slide like side so they can transport people in a wheelchair up and down the twisty ramps.

During the procedure, Grace and I went to eat at a local place so that I would not be nervous and we hurried back because Roman was not going to be in the procedure very long. After we came back, Roman was not awake yet but was brought in soon after. He did great; there was no pain in his back or the IV. He was a bit freaked out thinking that the procedure was just beginning after looking at his IV. It took a while to convince him that we are all done.

After about half an hour, he began eating everything, and I mean everything he could get his hands on. The Jell-O, the rice, the juice, the fruit cup. We had asked for refills. He was feeling really great; He said “Is this Mexico? I like Mexico”…while he’s eating and watching Netflix on our laptop. (by the way, wifi works there and I would take a laptop with Netflix if you have it.)

We had a great experience and soon after we left back across the border to our hotel room. We stopped on the way while Grace and Able treated us to some local cuisine of ice cream, then sandwiches while walking around the outside mall.

Since the trip we have noticed Roman waking up in the middle of the night saying he feels his butt more and that he has to go pee. One day after about 1.5 months he had a wet diaper. He has never had a wet diaper in 6 years! Since then his recurrent infections suddenly stopped and he has been having more strength in his legs to run and walk without his AFO shoes. I am excited seeing these results they are truly worth it! The peeing is becoming more consistent and we are seeing good results in his muscle strength as well.

I encourage anyone that wants to give their kiddo a chance to improve their life to take a chance and make this trip happen.

STEM CELL INFORMATION!!!

I have received SO MANY emails requesting information on the stem cells. I would LOVE to talk to each and every one of you personally (and don’t mind doing so) but I do get extremely busy and that often leaves me very forgetful!

I am posting this and pinning it to the top of the page so it is easily accessible.

NOVA Stem Cells Institute (website below):

Yes, it is in Mexico. NO, it is not scary!! The stem cell treatment was done at the women and children’s hospital in Tijuana. The doctors and nurses were very nice and accommodating. It was pretty much like any other hospital. Private room, TV, etc. I will say, the doctors and staff from NOVA speak English… the nurses at the hospital don’t. Just to give a heads up.

The website for NOVA has tons of information, photos, videos, testimonials, etc. You will be dealing with Grace Odgers for information and such at NOVA. Her email is gracepatients@gmail.com and she will GLADLY answer any questions that you may have. If she can’t she will get it.

Our experience was absolutely wonderful. As concerned parents, we left our hotel in San Diego and agreed that if anything felt off, or if we were uncomfortable, we were leaving. No questions asked. But we never had that moment. The procedure is quick, and we were only in Mexico for 3-4 hours at most.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. As far as progress, browse through Dryden’s page – everything is updated almost daily.

If you do talk to Grace, be sure to tell them that DRYDEN sent you!

Lots of love and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Dryden Corvers (spina bifida) continues to make progress!

Dreaming for Dryden

April 5, 2014

It’s been one year since we started this page and started fundraising for Dryden’s trip to NOVA Cells. One of the best decisions we have ever made. Dryden’s new favorite activity is trying to climb. He was climbing up Sissy’s step stool, climbing up the side of the recliner, just wanting to be higher. We are so thankful to everyone who helped make this happen. And so appreciative to NOVA cells for this opportunity. I hope in time this will become a more available treatment. We are certainly going to try again!

March 28

Whew! Long day. We are back at the hotel!!!
Everything went smoothly and we are already seeing some positive results! His feet definitely have better circulation – they are all punk and warm instead of splotchy and cold!

He has been twitching a LOT in his lower legs/feet. This means the nerves are starting to make some sort of connection to his brain. He even moved his left foot and toes when we asked him to (I’ll get video to you in a bit!)

Also – a funny tidbit – he was sitting in my lap and apparently had gas. Those of you who know Dryden know that’s pretty common. What was funny was that every time he would fart, he would look down, look at me and point to his belly. Ha ha! He’s gaining some sensation somewhere new with that too, I suppose!

We got back in tonight and stopped in at Dryden’s great grandparents to say hello. Dryden was on the floor and we were all talking. We looked down and he was on his hands and knees CRAWLING!!!! He only went a little ways, but he was very much so 4 point crawling!!! Then as we were sitting there talking about him, he pulled up onto his knees all by himself on the coffee table! Little dude is getting some strength or making some connections – either way – I’m so happy!!!!

Dryden is just continuing to amaze me.

I forgot to mention the other day when we were at his great grandmas that he tried climbing the stairs! Never even noticed them and he was going up!

This morning in therapy he tried crawling a little bit too – but did something even more amazing. He got to his big cube toy and tried pulling up. Not just to his knee either!! She asked him if he wanted to stand up and he said YES!!!! We helped him get his feet secured and he stood there for a short little time playing! Baby steps!!

First time he has ever WANTED to stand!

Dryden wasn’t quite as excited to stand this afternoon, but we made him anyways!
This is him standing up with NO BRACES on!!!

His PT even said she could feel his muscles in his FEET working when he would stand! His ankles didn’t roll or fall out from under him either!

I can only hope that with therapy he will have increased progress!!

Definitely going to be saving for another stem cell treatment in the future!

Central sleep apnea episodes fall from 66 per night to 7 in Ryan Neighbors, reports mom (Shelly)

Ryan Neighbors - 1 of 4 - January 2014IN A FEB. 10 2014 EMAIL TO GRACE AT NOVA CELLS INSTITUTE, SHELLY NEIGHBORS SHARED THIS EXCITING NEWS ABOUT HER DAUGHTER RYAN: 

I have so much to tell you and show you!

Ryan is moving her legs on her own CONTROLLED!! We’re not walking – but this is a step in the right direction.

Epilepsy turnaround for an angel (Angel Sosa)

Angel Sosa is 4 years old and has not exactly had an easy ride in life. Born to loving parents and a large family he entered this world saddled with lots of neurological  and physical challenges. Among them:  Infantile spasms, a  difficult-to-treat form of childhood-onset epilepsy called Lennox–Gastaut syndrome (LGS) or simply Lennox syndrome, and developmental delays. According to his loving Mum, Monique, he was ““having 10 clusters of 10-11 seizures lasting six (6) minutes each day and was having ten tonic seizures a day sometimes lasting up to 3 minutes without breathing.”

As you might expect little Angel’s early life was spent seeing doctors and therapists and taking drugs to control his epilepsy (Three currently: Felbamate, Valproic acid, and Zonisemide). Naturally, his parents kept an eye on the news and the Web for any medical advances that might offer any hope of remediating their son’s intractable epilepsy and other challenges. With the advent and growth of adult (nonembryonic) stem cell treatment programs outside the US they saw evidence that perhaps some form of stem cell therapy could help their little boy. As they sorted through the various private stem cell medicine operations abroad they came across accounts of the many turnarounds in children effected by Nova Cell’s primed stem cell treatments and intravenous use of its proprietary Beacon Factor. This encouraged Monique to reach out to NCIM patient educator & care facilitator, Grace (Ph.D. candidate), by phone. Grace then walked her through what NCIM doctors and scientists had accomplished and documented in treated patients and then ably tackled all her questions and concerns. Satisfied with what she had learned, the Sosa’s, enrolled their son in the NCIM treatment program and read the patient handbook (This link is to the abridged version of NCIM’s patient handbook. Those who wish to access the full version must register). Later, on the heels of Angel’s approval for treatment by NCIM physicians including a pediatric neurologist, she and her husband booked him for care on 6 February (2014).

When the “big day” arrived for Angel, Grace noted this about the little boy:

While waiting for his treatment Angel was very stiff and somewhat arching backward. His eyes were moving around the room randomly and, though he would look at you if you called his name after a couple of times, he did so only for a split second and it seemed that he saw right through you. His mom had to give him his dose of medications because he was getting a little more stiff and she knew they were wearing off.

Angel SosaAngel was then given primed umbilical cord stem cells and the Beacon Factor. Grace noted this at the time:

About an hour after his stem cell treatment Angel’s mom mentioned to us that both she and his father were impressed with how relaxed Angel is including his normally stiff legs. As the attending physician was checking him in recovery Angel did something amazing: He fixed his gaze on him for about 5 seconds. The doctor was both amazed and incredulous. Then Angel’s father said ‘Oh yea, he already has focused  his gaze on his mom and I.’  Within an hour Angel was already aware of his surroundings and the people around him.

In addition, Angel’s legs which were normally ice cold were now pink and warm and remained so.

After Angel got home and settled in Monique shared this with Grace by phone and later by email:

The Thursday morning of his stem cell treatment he had 3 tonic seizures and then after stem cells no more seizures till late Sunday night he had 2 small quick seizures. All this week he’s only had 3 seizures! And no big seizures at all! No more 6 minute clusters 🙂

In therapy his therapists have noticed improvements already! He feels so much stronger! He is tolerating standing a little more and one of his therapists noticed he was using the muscles on his arm and shoulders. Everyone has noticed that he’s more alert and happy and has more energy! On Tuesday he looked at me and smiled Mind you, he has never smiled for no reason.

Monique added that Angel’s three (3) year old sister was super excited by the fact her brother was following her all over the place with his eyes, something she instinctively regarded as a form of playing with her.

She concluded with this:

Thank you NOVA!!! I’m so excited about seeing more gains with my angel! Thank you Grace and Abel!

The Rikky Foresman stem cell story gathers steam: Williamsport, Pa. Sun Gazette article

ARTICLE ON RIKKY - SUN GAZETTE - 1-16-2014‘Blazin’ a trail’

Dad: Son develops feeling, increased motion in his legs after stem cell therapy

January 16, 2014
By RASHELLE CAREY (rcarey@sungazette.com) , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

http://www.sungazette.com/page/content.detail/id/601595.html

QUOTE FROM RASHELE CAREY’S ARTICLE

“Tuesday was the first day I’ve seen Rikky (since the procedure),” said Denise Lorson, Rikky’s physical therapist at the Children’s Development Center. “I noticed his legs were not as contracted and he was straighter at the knees. He has increased sensation in the legs and feet and he could tell which foot I was touching.”

Lorson also said Rikky has more voluntary motion in his legs.

“Before, when Rikky would stand in his walker, he would stand with both of his feet together,” she said. “His muscles were so tight, his feet would be on top of each other.”

On Tuesday, Rikky was able to lift his feet while standing so that they weren’t crossed.

“I truly was very very impressed,” Lorson said. “The fact that he is able to have feeling will help him to not get infections, to know when something is hurt or know when he has a scratch before it could get infected.”

Do you believe in miracles? If not, read this!

Little Rikky could not feel anything below his knees but started doing so in the first few hours following his Nova Cells treatment! 

POSTED BY RIKKY’S FOLKS ON THEIR LITTLE BOY’S FACEBOOK PAGE ON 1-8-2014 (Link further down below)

Check it out! Rikky had no feeling below his knees prior to the treatment! This is 30 minutes after he came out of the O.R. and we will see results for 6-8 MONTHS!

If you didn’t believe it before when we said it was going work then watch this!!!

I just want to scream from the freaking rooftops, I am so full of joy and thankfulness! It  exceded whatever I imagined to happen, just seeing hime moving his left leg is giving me chills over and over and over and over again! AND HIS LEGS ARE LOOSEY GOOSEY!EVEN MORE THAN AFTER THERAPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And posted tonight (1-8-2014) from SEAWORLD in San Diego at around 7 pm Pacific Time:

“FEEL MY LEGS, DAD”. So we are sitting watching the dolphin show and Rikky says this because he has shorts on and it’s a little chilly (we all have shorts on btw). He NEVER felt his lower legs before!

And posted to Rikky’s Facebook page on 1-14-2014:

Blazin for Rikky

Went to Rikky’s PT she is amazed at Rikky’s progress from the stem cells! She says it is unbelievable and she is going to write a letter that says how the stem cells worked so well on Rikky. She has been his PT since he was 2 months old, and she has been a PT for over 30 years. She is quite amazed! This makes me quite joyous because she validates what I have been seeing and I know now that I am not imagining things! This is only ONE WEEK after treatment, we will still have progress for 6 MONTHS!! This is so wonderful! Grace and Abel are angels!!! I am so glad we decided to do this! I hope more people will see this progress with Rikky and get this for their kids too! I highly recommend NOVA CELLS INSTITUTE!!! THEY HAVE CHANGED OUR LIVES!!!!!!

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10202462548192683&l=1269382276310712012

We are starting fundraising again this weekend. and our goal is to be back (to Nova Cells) by this summer/fall

Ryan’s core strength is MIND BLOWING. She’s breathing so much better and eating all sorts of different foods. She is also writing her name and is able to stabilize her  trunk and balance when in a crawling position and when standing. Her legs aren’t doing as much as we hoped, BUT she has gained so much strength in her core and in other places I never even thought of it helping her legs. I know for a fact we wouldn’t be where we are today without your help and the stem cells. Hopefully a 2nd round will do much more.

We love you guys and can’t wait to see you again.

GOD IS GOOD. Love you guys MUCHO!!!!
