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.
ADVANTAGES OF WHARTON’S JELLY STEM CELLS ESPECIALLY MESENCYMALS (Designated as WJ-MSC for convenience below) ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO SAFETY
WJ HAS MORE STEM CELLS THAN EITHER BONE MARROW OR ADIPOSE TISSUE
The quantity of mesenchymal stem cells which can typically be obtained from bone marrow is far less than that Wharton’s Jelly: 0.001 to 0.01% mononuclear cells from BM, with 1 g of adipose tissue yielding ~ 5 × 103 stem cells, and Wharton’s jelly 1 to 5 × 104 cells/cm of umbilical cord. In side-by-side comparison studies of MSC from bone marrow adipose tissue and Wharton’s jelly, WJ-MSCs had the highest proliferative capacity.
WJ STEM CELLS ARE MORE PRIMITIVE THAN OTHER ADULT STEM CELL TYPES YET DO NOT PRODUCE TUMORS AND ACTUALLY HAVE ANTI-TUMOR EFFECTS IN VITRO (Lab dish) AND IN VIVO (In living animals & humans)
WJ-MSC differ from other adult MSCs with respect to the fact they demonstrate far more primitive characteristics e.g., they express embryonic-like stem cell markers including pluripotency genes, Oct-4, Nanog, and SOX-2 but at levels well below that of embryonic stem (ESC) cells. Despite this, WJ-MSCs do not form tumors (teratomas). This is attributed to the fact that WJ-MS’s have a lower expression of pluripotency genes than embryonic stem cells (ESCs being very pluripotent and by virtue of this are prone to develop teratomas when injected into animals or humans). When WJ-MSCs were injected in immunocompromised and immunodeficient animals they still failed to form tumors.
Also: WJ-MSCs express low levels of the embryonic stem cell pluripotency markers POUF1, NANOG, SOX2 and LIN28, which also plays a role in the fact they do not produce teratomas. WJ-MSCs also synthesize and express several cytokines including IL12A which is associated with the induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death) which is believed to underlie their ability to lyse (eradicate) tumor cells.
Furthermore, the transcriptome of WJ-MSC and ESC differs substantially in that WJ-MSCs demonstrate high expression levels of several tumor suppressor genes and suppresses tumors both in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, large quantities of tumor growth inhibiting cytokines and growth factors are secreted by WJ-MSCs. Also, WJ-MSC cell lysates as well as the conditioned medium they are cultured in strongly inhibited the growth of breast adenocarcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, osteosarcoma, benign neoplastic keloid cells, bladder tumor, and lymphoma cells in vitro. When WJ-MSC cell lysates and conditioned medium were injected into mammary carcinoma, osteosarcoma, and pancreatic and lung tumors it inhibited their growth and shrank the tumors in vivo .
WJ-MSCs DO NOT CAUSE IMMUNE REJECTION OR ADVERSE REACTIONS
WJ-MSCs have also been found to be immunoprivileged which is to say they escape rejection or adverse immune reactions. Part of the reason for this lies in the fact WJ-MSCs have low MHC-I levels and an absence of MHC-II expression. And, though they synthesize low amounts of MHC class I, WJ-MSCs have no immunogenicity. Research indicates that this is due to the fact they do not express costimulatory molecules such as CD 40, CD80, CD86, and also produce high levels of immune response inhibitors such as indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and leukocyte antigen G6 (HLA-G6).

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.
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
NEW STUDY UNDERSCORES HOW MESSED UP “GARBAGE DISPOSAL” PROCESSING IN NEURONS CREATES BIG PROBLEMS: Breaking the brain’s garbage disposal (AUTOPHAGY): Study shows even a small problem causes big effects: http://medicalxpress.com/news/2016-01-brain-garbage-disposal-small-problem.html (1-26-2016)
Many neurodegenerative diseases involve a failure of lysosomes (the “garbage disposal” system within cells including neurons) to do their job properly. Now comes evidence that defective or compromised lysosomes may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, something ably laid out in a 6-30-15 article on the Medical Express website at http://medicalxpress.com/news/2015-06-failure-cells-garbage-disposal-contribute.html. Here is a salient quote from this article:
Lysosomes, the “garbage disposal” systems of cells, are found in great abundance near the amyloid plaques in the brain that are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have long assumed that their presence was helpful—that they were degrading the toxic proteins that trigger amyloid plaque formation.
However, in Alzheimer’s patients, these lysosomes lack the ability to do their jobs properly, and instead of helping, the accumulation of lysosomes may even contribute to the disease, Yale University researchers report the week of June 29 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The new findings raise the possibility that coaxing lysosomes to do their jobs could help to prevent the toxic processes that eventually destroy the minds of Alzheimer’s patients.
The big question is how to get lysosomes to do their job as they should. While medicine has little that can pull this off, Nova Cells possesses an effective, nontoxic way to do so: Namely its proprietary Beacon Factor. Not surprisingly, many patients with neurologic diseases and conditions that involve fouled up lysosomes have responded quickly and beautifully to intravenous infusions of the Beacon Factor. Click to read some of the case histories.

Nova Cells has assembled information on its stem cell medicine program including stem cell priming and its proprietary Beacon Factor in e-book form titled “Heroic Medicine” which is free at http://www.novacellsinstitute.com/pdf/Heroic%20Medicine.pdf
Note 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.

September is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and in recognition of this Nova Cells Institute would like share some good news about how it is tackling this insidious condition and getting impressive results.
First off, the Nova Cells approach to treating Alzheimer’s disease takes into account the latest thinking among scientists and others on the disease processes that characterize it and how to interfere with and impede them.
So what processes do leading edge researchers think underlie Alzheimer’s disease? In-a-word AD is a protein misfolding disease (proteinopathy), caused by plaque accumulation of abnormally folded amyloid beta protein, and tau protein in the brain (Tauopathy), which form the neurofibrillary tangles which are a hallmark of the disease. Many scientists believe that AD is initiated by viruses, trauma, prions, inflammation or other factors.
Building on this, NCIM’s approach to combating AD includes:
But, Nova Cells goes the extra mile which boils down to this: While many stem cell medicine clinics just “throw” stem cells at Alzheimer’s disease (i.e. they give AD patients infusions of nonembryonic stem cells), Nova Cells offers a much more sophisticated & innovative approach to slowing progression and helping regain lost ground which includes https://ncimx.wordpress.com/2015/07/01/messed-up-cellular-garbage-disposal-system-found-to-play-a-role-in-alzheimers-disease-nova-cells-beacon-factor-coaxes-lysosomes-to-do-their-job/.

Linda’s little boy has cerebral palsy and has vision, cognitive and walking issues. Within a week of getting primed stem cells & the nontoxic Beacon Factor by Nova Cells Institute doctors (August 2015), Linda shared this with NCIM’s Grace Odgers, PhD cand. by email (firstname.lastname@example.org):
As you know, my boy has really been struggling for a long time with walking and now after his treatment he just gets up and does it! Today he was even trying to run about. Also, I see signs his vision has improved too. On top of all this, his temperament is so much better and he is no longer easily frustrated and his ability to focus & take on challenging tasks has improved. For instance, today at therapy he put objects like circles, triangles and stars into the right sorting container which left the staff totally blown away! My husband took in all these leaps forward which left him almost in a state of disbelief! I wish all the parents of children with CP would get them into treatment with your program. Warmest regards to both you and Dr. Abel, and do watch your email for more progress updates and video clips too of our boy. Love, Linda.
At the hospital, even before we left to take this family back to their hotel in San Diego, the boy was sitting on the floor, then just folded one of his legs and got right up without help from his mom or anyone present. This so amazed the lady that it left her totally wide mouth open. Then at the hotel the boy did it again but this time took about 4 steps and sat down. The mother was simply awed by what was happening.

This is Julia Simpson. I heard about Nova Cells Institute from other patients so I looked them up and checked out their website and testimonials. I am getting on in years being 66 and just feel the weight of the years on me. I have been pretty much healthy all of my life but as the years passed by I acquired more and more little problems which latter turn chronic. I get check-ups, take supplements, but my symptoms persisted.
I have a prolapsed bladder which makes me get up at night at least 2 times sometimes three times. This has been going on for about 6 years.
About 8 years ago a doctor prescribed Calcitonin as a nasal spray to avoid bone loss. I used it for about a month and a half. About a month into it I started to have problems with my right eye. It began tearing during the night and I had pain in it and it was red and irritated. Then headache started on that side. I did not connect this to the nasal spray. For days I had the tearing and redness even during the day and became very sensitive to sunlight. I realized that I was putting the spray in my right nostril, and the right eye was the one giving me a problem. So I then stopped using it and told my doctor. The problem is that although it stopped bothering me during the day it has never stopped giving me problems at night if I sleep on the right side, and I still had lots of pain.
I have more or less a lot of energy but I take one or two small naps a day to get reenergized.
One major thing that has been bothering me for the last 6 years is that my right hand is trembling slightly, some times more so when I get stressed. I got very worried about having Parkinson’s. I decided to get a stem cell treatment for rejuvenating my organs and hopefully helping get rid myself of the Parkinson’s like symptoms because although it is not progressing it does not go away and left me very worried about this.
On June 19, 2015 I had my stem cell treatment at NCIM . I was picked up by Abel and Grace who were so nice and professional. They answered all of my questions so I felt at ease and relaxed because I went to Mexico alone.
The city of Tijuana was just around the corner sort of speak. Just 15 minutes from the city of San Diego. The city itself was totally different from what I had imagined. It is a real nice city of 3 million people. They have roundabouts often and lots of statues of heroes, even one of Abraham Lincoln (planted in the avenue of the heroes). I understand the Lincoln statue serves as a “thumbs up” to American democracy and is a “welcome here” for US tourists. Lots of beautiful tall buildings, many made of all glass, dot the landscape everywhere. I saw McDonald’s, Costco, Office Max, Office Depot, Walmart, and a Subway Sandwich shop among others. People were milling about and walking all over the place, kind of like New York. I felt really good about Tijuana and totally safe.
Once I got to the hospital I found the staff incredibly friendly and courteous. Once I got checked in I was assessed by three doctors an internal medicine as well as a neurologist and an anesthesiologist.
The doctors did many tests and then I was infused with the Beacon Factor and got my stem cells by IV and also a percentage by spinal tap. I was not put to sleep for my spinal tap. The MDs just gave me a local anesthesia where the little puncture was made. It didn’t hurt at all. Then I got more Beacon Factor which helps the stem cells seek out damaged tissue. I was there for observation for a few hours then discharged. Abel and Grace then took me to eat at a delicious cafeteria with all kinds of Mexican dishes to choose from. Then was brought back across the border in the US.
About 6 days after my treatment all of a sudden I noticed that my eye no longer was tearing up or hurt any more. I could not believe it and decided to wait a few more days just in case it came back. It has already been 17 days and the eye is not tearing up.
My energy has shot up incredibly too. To the point where I’ve only taken naps three times in all these days, and short ones at that.
About a week into my treatment I noticed that I was not waking up at night to go to the bathroom. I was instead sleeping through the night like a baby and waking up at 8:00 or 8:30 AM each morning. I wake up so rested. I am going into deep sleep every night and am even dreaming now which was not true in the past.
My bladder, of course, is still prolapsed, but I do not have the sensation of needing to visit the bathroom over and over again each night.
But the most wonderful thing is that my hand shaking is all gone and I am ecstatic about this! About 10 days post-treatment, I was using my computer when I realized that I was not shaking any more. Of all the symptoms impacted by my treatment I am so happy and amazed that the shaking is gone! It was amazing that I felt so good I did not even notice the change at first. Thank you Nova Cells Institute! Yes, I was hoping to get rid of my Parkinson’s symptoms, but I never thought that they would be gone in a matter of days. Maybe it was so quick because my shaking was rather mild, but even if it had taken months I would have been just as happy. I am not afraid or concerned any more.
On June 27th Nova Cells Institute (NCIM) chronic stroke patient, Dan Huntley (Photo – Truro Daily News (2013), sent this email update to NCIM’s patient educator and care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. candidate:
It sounds like you are very busy helping the needy, Grace. Update: I now have movement in my left elbow which was previously locked at a 90 degree to 45 degree angle. Also, my walking continues to improve and I can now actually feel the leg muscles working. Amen, praise God, and God bless you, Grace, and Abel, and all the angels at the hospital in Mexico. Say “Hi “to Dr. R. for me and to all the nurses also. A big thank you and love to all, Dan
You can read more about “Mr. Dan’s” remarkable turnaround following his NCIM treatment at https://ncimx.wordpress.com/category/stroke/
“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.”
Dan Huntley is an outgoing chap who had a stroke almost 10 years ago that left him paralyzed on his left side and which in-a-sense turned his world upside down. While his doctors cautioned him to accept his disability and make the best of things, Dan kept looking for ways to restore his former independence. A December 2013 Truro Daily News article on Dan titled “Truro stroke survivor has renewed hope with new car” reflects Dan’s quest for this (You can access at http://www.trurodaily.com/News/Local/2013-12-19/article-3549224/Truro-stroke-survivor-has-renewed-hope-with-new-car/1).
After reading about Arthur Rechlo’s incredible turnaround in the St. Albert Gazette (Click to access), Dan felt that any treatment that could make such a difference in an advanced dementia patient might do something good for him. He then contacted Nova Cells Institute and began a dialog with patient educator & care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D.
Long story short: Dan was treated over two consecutive days in early May (5-7 and 5-8). Within a very short period of time he reported that his energy level had shot up to what it had been when he was in his 40s and 50s, and on top of this he was feeling “tingling” in his paralyzed left side.
Dan is back home in Canada now and welcomes calls from well wishers and those interested in learning more about his Nova Cells treatment and his response to-date. Those interested in connecting with Mr. Dan should email Grace at email@example.com or call her at 1-562-916-3410. Those with Skype can connect with Mr. Dan via his Skype account ID which is dan.huntleyalerxgillis (If you do not have Skype, it is free at http://www.skype.com. Skype members can call or instant text other members for free).
From an email sent Grace on 5-11-2015 by Mr. Dan:
I can feel bottom of left foot normal and itchy. I can relax and sleep like before stroke. Now I know I have a left side on my body. Foot working little by little. WOW!
And in a 5-12-2015 phone call to Grace, Mr. Dan shared these new developments:
(1) The depression and anxiety that has dogged his steps during most of the years following his stroke has utterly dissipated.
(2) His memory has come roaring back (He is remembering things his stroke robbed him of going back decades).
(3) He can now lean on his left side and stand.
(4) He senses that his paralyzed left hand is about to come to life and begin working.
And this from an email sent Grace on 5-14-15 by Mr. Dan:
3 pm Thursday May 14. Praise the Lord, today I walked some without assistance. No cane. I will be going 22 May for bladder tests and hope my bladder is good by then. Wow, I am coming back to life. This is truly a miracle in the making. This is the next generation in medicine [I have felt this way since I first investigated the Nova Cells treatment. Our medical system is money hungry. They must give us this great chance to be healthy as the good Lord intended us to be]. God bless you all! -Dan
And there is this from an email sent Grace by Mr. Dan on Saturday, 5-16-15 (9:06 pm Nova Scotia):
I can feel the toes on my left foot.
Mr. Dan contacted the Truro Daily News about his turnaround and was interviewed by a reporter on 5-20-2015. He tells Grace that “CTV news may follow my treatment with an interview some time later”.
In addition, he plans on seeing his neurologist in the very near future. Once this MD sees the rapid improvements he has made, he will ask for approval to enter a physical therapy program to reinforce his gains and build on them.
Dan Huntley now standing on his own! (This photo sent to NCIM on 5-17-2015)
Progressive 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.

Roger Easterling, 48, began having tinkling sensations and numbness in his hands and legs during the summer of 2014. At first he tried to ignore this but soon he found this impossible to do as one leg and foot were now working very badly, and one of his hands had become stiff and difficult to move. Soon both hands were drawn up in a fist. He was also getting tired very easily and edgy.
After seeing a neurologist and going through all kinds of tests and scans the verdict came down: Multiple sclerosis.
Roger began taking the drugs his doctor prescribed but all he did was deteriorate. He was now afraid, not just for himself but the family that depended on him including his wife and teenage children.
One of the things that really bothered Roger was watching his once considerable physical and mental energies drain away, combined with the onset of depression. And though he was sleeping more and had begun napping for twenty minutes three and four times daily, he was constantly tired and almost never felt refreshed or ready to tackle routine tasks and chores.
Like many people with a devastating disease that wasn’t responding to conventional care, Roger and his wife began scouring the Web for promising new treatments including stem cells. This led him to Nova Cells during February (2015).
During the first week of March Roger went to Mexico where he received primed umbilical cord stem cells and the Beacon Factor. Within hours he was moving his stiff hand freely and within two weeks both hands were relaxed and working normally.
In the days since then Roger has enjoyed additional gains:
Prior to his stem cell & Beacon Factor treatment Roger would go golfing with his children every weekend but found that it took four hours to do nine holes and he left the country club exhausted. Now he is golfing the same course in 2 hours time and finishes up full of pep.
In the months prior to his stem cell treatment Roger and his family would go to church every Sunday, but because of his MS he did not have the strength to stand up to sing. Now he is able to do this.
In addition, whereas once he got tuckered out just carrying a gallon of water from his car into his house, now he was taking on physically demanding tasks without getting weary. For example, recently he pulled out a defective toilet in one of his bathrooms and carried it out of his house for hauling away and disposal.
Roger’s depression too is now pretty much a thing of the past.
Naturally, Roger and his family and the entire Nova Cells staff is excited by his turnaround and anticipate seeing more gains and improvements in the weeks and months ahead.
Wow, Wow, Wow & WOW!!! AWESOME day at Therapy today so we decided to do our 1st EVER trip around the grocery store!! This kid WALKED (with huge steps nonetheles…s) from the car into the store then all the way way down 1 aisle and back up the other to the register and back to the car!!!!
Oh yeah….we raised just over $2,000 in Easter Egg sales too! Up to $6,000 of approx $20,000 needed to go back to NOVA for Stem Cells. grin emoticon
In later 2014 eight-five (85) year old Patricia Rodriguez went to Mexico to have her longstanding arthritis treated by Nova Cells Institute. During her one day stay she was given umbilical cord stem cells that had been primed to become cells that fight arthritis and promote healing and joint restoration, along with the Beacon Factor.
Upon her return stateside, the very next day Patricia noticed a surge of energy and strength upon walking. However, week after week positive things of all kinds began surfacing. Her daughter, Tina, summarized these for Nova Cells as follows:
She has incredible strength in comparison to what was true before (her treatment). She can walk all over Walmart and then when we went to a mall near her home she walked the entire length of it not once but twice, and was only a little tired when we got back to her house”, although, I was tired too.
Tina added, “She can get up from the rocking chair without my daughter having to pull her up. And she can open a can of soda using a finger that could not bear doing this last year”. This was one month after her treatment.
“Also, …and this is the latest thing,…for 48 years Mom had incredibly bad vertigo if she laid on her right side which did not happen when she laid down on her left side. She often said her vertigo was like having the room spin at one hundred miles per hour. Naturally when she slept she made every effort to sleep on her right side. Then last week she woke up on her right side and was absolutely shocked to find she had no vertigo. It has not returned!”
Four months after her treatment she had no arthritis pain, in her hands and right arm, whatsoever.
“Mom was also always afraid of losing her balance. She never fell, but she felt that she might one day do so. She would instinctively grab the rail to go up the stairs in her home and also in mine, and then slowly, cautiously take one step at a time. She would hold onto the rail and moving up it by taking one step and at the same time moving her left hand over the right hand. She never would let one hand go until she had the other on the rail.”
“Now 5 months after her stem cell treatment she goes up the 15 stair staircase without holding onto anything.”

► It’s treatments are effective: NCIM’s use of primed adult (nonembryonic) stem cells along with its proprietary Beacon Factor has brought about swift neurologic improvements in not only adults but also in more than 95% of the children treated to-date. Many children with poor circulation and movement in their lower limbs have experienced the “pinking up” of cold, often oxygen starved (cyanotic) bluish tissue within hours of their treatment often followed by being able to move previously immobile toes, feet and even legs. Many parents with cell phones or video cameras in-hand have excitedly videotaped their children doing things with their bodies they previously could not do within hours of their NCIM treatment. Many of these videos or links to them are posted on this website at: http://novacellsinstitute.com/spina-bifida-updates.html
►Affordability (aka value for money invested in care): Patients, parents and others never have to deal with middle men, brokers, professional marketers or the like when it comes to Nova Cells Institute Mexico. NCIM was founded, in fact, by a group of people who wanted to create a business entity that puts people above huge profit margins. The steadfast refusal of NCIM to retain brokers or other professional sales or marketing people coupled with its dogged pursuit of cost savings in its lab and among its contracted doctors clinics & hospitals has made it possible for NCIM to consistently offer its patients treatments that run well below market. For instance, while many private clinics and hospitals doing stem cell therapies in Asia and China charge $35K USD or more to treat spina bifida children, cerebral palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and such, NCIM typically charges $15-17K USD (Roughly 50% less). In addition, 99% of NCIM neurologic treatments are done in a single day while some being done in Asia and elsewhere can take weeks on end to complete.
►NCIM’s Personal Touch: Nova Cells Institute Mexico was founded and is staffed by caring people who have devoted their lives to relieving suffering and effecting healing. When people call or email Nova Cells they typically have their call or email answered by Grace Odgers, Ph.D. cand., who delights in fielding questions and “filling in the blanks”. When questions or issues are raised that require input from a doctor or scientist, Grace quickly obtains this and passes it along. As part of NCIM’s “personal touch” philosophy, Grace and her husband, biochemist and NCIM director of laboratory Services Dr. Abel Pena, typically help out with getting NCIM patients and their family or caregivers to and from Mexico, and support them through every step of the treatment process while there. If you look closely at the many patient tendered articles on this website and on Facebook and other websites, you will often hear about how Grace and Dr. Abel “have became like family to us”.
And, unlike so many stem cell treatment programs, patients are not treated and turned loose. They invariably get follow-up emails and/or phone calls from NCIM staff especially Grace.
►NCIM Goes the Extra Mile: Nova Cells Institute Mexico primed stem cells, Beacon Factor, donor granulocyte therapy (for cancer) and other treatments have proved to a healing Godsend to so many people in and of themselves. However, this is not all there is to it. NCIM affiliated doctors plus experts in scientifically-validated therapeutic diets, nutrition, herbal medicine and more carefully review patient medical records and test results to determine what (if any) can be recommended that is likely to optimize healing and/or other aspects of the patient’s recovery and restoration, e.g., physical, cognitive, mood, etc. These are then passed on to the patient by NCIM doctors.
And, last but not least……

Lewy 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.
A boy with devastating brain damage due to a near drowning accident underwent treatment with primed umbilical cord stem cells and the Beacon Factor by NCIM. The child’s response was so profoundly positive that his normally reserved father tearfully exclaimed, “How can we begin to thank you for giving us back our son?!?”

Danielle “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. This clip was inserted in an animated video which can be accessed by going to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUBvyFt0Vm4#t=109 or click the screen image below,
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.

My 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!!!!!

Alejandra’s Mum reports: It has been 8mos since Alejandra’s first stem cell treatment and look how she is crawling today Exciting, can’t wait to see what the next one will do! I must give some credit to The March of Dimes, Conductive Education too…for isolating each leg movement independently from the other.

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!
April 6 2014
He’s a climbing machine!!
April 6, 2014
Crawl baby, crawl!!!!! Dryden is now saying (vocally) puppy, baby, mommy, daddy, cookie, cracker, nanny, pawpaw, papa, sissy… I may be forgetting something here but… He’s all of a sudden bursting with vocabulary.
Dryden is a cute, charming little boy with spina bifida who received primed stem cells & NCIM’s proprietary Beacon Factor on 3-28-14. The entries below are from Dryden’s Facebook page.
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 the…re 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!
Since having done stem cells February 6, angel went 24 days without a Tonic seizure!! Before stem cells he was having them everyday 2-4 a day. It only lasted a couple seconds and recovered great afterwards. And with the cluster of infantile spasms some days it seems like there’s none and other days he will have 1-2 maybe lasting only a couple seconds and before he was having 2-4 clusters a day lasting 6-10 mins everyday!! I have also completely weaned him off zonegran his last dose was February 28. So now he’s only on 2 meds depakote and felbamate.
YOU’LL FIND AN EARLIER ENTRY ON ANGEL AT http://ncimx.wordpress.com/2014/02/16/epilepsy-turnaround-for-an-angel-angel-sosa/
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.
Not only that – but she recently had a sleep study to check on her central sleep apnea. Before stem cells, she was having 66 episodes per night. After we Only had 7! They are thinking about taking her off her oxygen!
We hope to see you all again before this fall. I have videos to send but I’m at the gym. I send them when I get home. We love you and hope all is well.

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.
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 Sosa’s have set up a Facebook page for Angel which is at https://www.facebook.com/angel.sosa.52?fref=ts. This page contains photos, videos, posts and more.
