How you can turn a disposable surgical mask into a virus killer

Correction: On page 3 of the how to guide this entry “A suitable 1 or 2 ounce (30 or 60 mL) spray bottle (Glass is probably best as plastics contain chemicals that could leach into the salt-surfactant solution) Look for no clog pumps.” should have read “A suitable 6 oz (177 mL) spray bottle……etc.”

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

New study underscores how messed up “garbage processing” in neurons causes major problems

TOP DOWN MRI SCAN - Free MSNEW 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)

 

Messed up cellular “garbage disposal system” found to play a role in Alzheimer’s disease (And Nova Cell’s BEACON FACTOR coaxes lysosomes to do their job!)

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.

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.

Rapid improvements in vision, walking, mood & cognition for boy with cerebral palsy treated by Nova Cells

NCIM N SIGN - JULY 2013Linda’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 (gracepatients@gmail.com):

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.

Grace added:

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.

Roger Easterling of California Gets A New Lease on Life (Rapidly progressing multiple sclerosis)

Wheelchair photo - MSRoger 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.

Arthritis & vertigo turnaround in 85 year old lady from Nevada (USA)

Senior Couple At HomeIn 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.”

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.

Weber 4

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!!!!!

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!

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!

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!!!!

Honor Tinsley: Little girl with spina bifida gets feeling in parts of her body that were previously “dead”

FROM THE “WALL OF HONOR” FACEBOOK PAGE CREATED &  MAINTAINED BY HONOR TINSLEY’S MUM:
Honor has gained feeling in her right leg in the thigh and hip area its coming and going but she has felt it multiple times when we are tickling her. She has also felt us tickling her toes off and on we are back home now and just thrilled about all the changes she is experiencing. She also is feeling so good and she’s so much stronger it seems her energy level has skyrocketed and you can just tell she isn’t feeling as much pain. It has been so amazing to be able to touch her places she previously didn’t even know existed on her body and watch her look around and cry trying to figure out where it’s coming from. She feels it! It’s a whole new world for her now. It’s scary for me at the same time, I know she has been living with a broken femur and has escaped the reality of that pain now she must continue to live with it yet may feel some of that pain. Its been amazing to see her be so happy and full of energy. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it…. God is soooo good. Thank you all for your support and kind words we are blessed to have such an amazing support system.

NOVA CELLS SUN GRAPHIC - JULY 2013

February 2013 update on Spencer Tomc (spina bifida) by his Mum, Jennifer

Tomc FamilyOn November 13, 2012, we had the privilege of heading back down to Nova Cells Institute in Mexico for another stem cell treatment for our son Spencer.  He has been doing great since the last treatment and we wanted to keep up his progress and see more improvements.  We were excited because this treatment would be new for Spencer in the sense he would be getting stem cell “Beacon (or homing) Factor” which was developed by NCIM’s chief biochemist, Abel Pena.

The day was perfect!  We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and spent the morning by the pool basking in the sunshine and warmth.  Abel and Grace picked us up at the hotel and it was like being reunited with family after more than a year.   We made the trip to Tijuana in record time and got into the hospital where the doctors were waiting for Spencer’s arrival.  Once we checked in, we were settled into our room and Spencer was taken to the OR (Operating Room) for his treatment.  As usual, Abel was in the OR with him which helped him to relax.

Within 30 minutes or less, Spencer came back down and was taken to the recovery room.  The MDs told us the procedure went well and he needed to lay flat for 30 minutes or so.  Spencer was groggy and still wondering when he was going to get his treatment!  We had to explain several times that his treatment was over and that he had received the stem cells.  Within an hour, he was drinking juice and eating small bites of food (mostly Jell-O to feed the stem cells with some sugar).  He generously gave his sherbet to his big brother and proceeded to play video games and watch movies.

By 4:30 pm we were able to get him dressed and ready to leave.  Abel and Grace picked us back up and we headed out for dinner at a local restaurant.  Following dinner, we visited a local shopping mall for a bit of Mexican atmosphere and treats, and then headed back across the border into the US.   Everything went so smoothly – we know God was with us the entire time!

Since the procedure, we have seen so many changes in Spencer from growth spurts to more muscles firing.  His legs are better aligned in his hips – specifically, the muscles in the right leg are firing evenly instead of pulling his right leg outward.  He has started to bend his left knee and wiggles his toes more and it is much easier for him to get to his knees and maintain a kneeling position.  He even told me last week that “he is wiggling his toes” when he usually says “my toes are wiggling”.  The changes we see are new and exciting and seem to be happening with each and every passing day.

We thank God for the knowledge and caring hearts He’s given to Abel and Grace Pena and all the people connected with NCIM.  We are also thankful that we’ve been able to take Spencer for two treatments and can’t wait to see what new things he’s going to do tomorrow and the day after!

Multiple Sclerosis: Three recent cases

Mr. J. R. is a 49 year old Mexican national who has been struggling with Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis for six years, which was rapidly progressing prior to his coming to NCIM (January 2012).

He arrived at NCIM’s treatment facility unable to walk and with his speech so slurred only his family was able to understand him.  He also had difficulty swallowing as well as being unable to move his tongue very well. According to NCIM co-administrator & patient care coordinator, Grace, Mr. J. R.’s arms functioned normally but everything from the waist down plus his tongue and throat did not. He was treated with stem cells derived from three umbilical cords, Wharton’s Jelly and his own bone marrow (primed using Nova Cell’s unique laboratory method) along with NCIM’s proprietary Beacon factor.

Six weeks after his treatment Mr. J. R. was able to be understood even on the phone. He was so amazed and ecstatic with the improvement in his ability to communicate that he could not resist calling people to chat plus family and friends whom he often invited to him home to visit with him.

About three months following his treatment he was walking again, specifically taking a few steps at a time and climbing a few stairs — with assistance.

As of August (2012) Mr. J.R. can walk (slowly) without assistance and can also touch his palate with his tongue. He is hoping to be able to return to NCIM in January 2013 for another treatment.

Ms. Elisa is a 38 year old lady diagnosed with Secondary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis four years ago. Among the things she has been wrestling with:

  • Poor balance
  • Lots of pain in her legs
  • Rigidity in her hands and one leg
  • Migraines
  • Unable to walk well (Alternates using a walker and wheelchair to get about)
  • Severe depression
  • Poor appetite with corresponding weight loss

Ms. Elisa was treated during December 2011 with primed stem cells from Wharton’s Jelly, cord blood and her own bone marrow, along with NCIM’s proprietary Beacon Factor.  

About two months after her treatment Ms. Elisa noticed her migraine headaches were becoming less frequent. In addition, she was able to balance herself to the point of not being afraid to fall any more though she continues to use her walker to get about. The rigidity in the hand and leg on one side of body has diminished and the other leg is no longer rigid though there is some light twitching which she is managing with tonic water and quinine. Also, Ms. Elisa is eating better, has gained some weight, and though she feels sad she no longer feels controlled by depression (The severe bouts of depression having completely disappeared). She reports seeing no further disease progression.

Mr. M. S., the brother of a prominent Mexican politician, is not a Nova Cell’s patient but instead was treated by his primary care doctor in Mexico using stem cells processed and primed by NCIM. He has been struggling with multiple sclerosis for eight (8) years and complained of severe fatigue, blurred and double vision in one eye, problems with his bladder, constipation, lots of muscle spasticity plus loss of muscle strength.

He was treated in February 2012 and responded so amazingly well his family brought him back to Tijuana in the middle of June to get a booster treatment.

Among the benefits Mr. M.S. has reported:  His spasticity is much better especially following his second treatment, his vision is improving and he is getting more control of his bladder. His family is taking him to physical therapy which has resulted in his gaining some physical strength. Perhaps most impressive of all to Mr. M. S. is the fact that his condition has stopped progressing.  

Mr. M.S. anticipates seeing additional gains in the months to come and has pledged to report any and all changes to Nova Cell’s co-administrator and & patient care coordinator, Grace.

Gabe Smith (Spina Bifida): Making rapid progress

My name is Kristin Smith and my 2 ½ year old son, Gabe, has myelomeningocele type spina bifida affecting the L3-L4 region of his spine. He also has a VP shunt in place. When he was 1 ½ years old we took him to China for his first stem cell treatment where he received eight (8) intravenous IV treatments with umbilical cord stem cells along with acupuncture, physical therapy, fire cupping and massage. The cost was $30,000 USD. Prior to this treatment Gabe was unable to use his legs and had low hip movement as well as low sensation and poor blood flow in his legs and feet. Following his treatment he was able to move his hips enough to use an RGO brace (which basically supports his legs and moves them once he initiates movement with his hips) that allows him to walk with a walker. In addition, he had greater sensation to his knees and was able to support himself on his knees while holding onto something. He also experienced more sensation in his penis.

In May 2012 we went to Tijuana, Mexico for his second stem cell treatment with Nova Cells Institute (NCIM). We had heard many wonderful things about this group especially with regard to the rapid results that families were seeing in their spina bifida-afflicted children following treatment with Nova Cell’s primed stem cells. At the same time we also heard many negative things about the north Baja area, as I’m sure most people from the States have, e.g., violence, kidnapping, dirty, dangerous, etc. We went despite the rumors and are so thankful that we did! To our surprise Tijuana is very clean, full of nice people and a lot of uniformed young children walking around and playing after school. We ate in a local restaurant around 8 pm and never for a second felt insecure or in any danger whatsoever. It was the opposite of what we were told by well meaning friends and other who were basically just speculated wildly. We had great food and while waiting to cross the border (back into the US) were able to buy some great souvenirs from the local people who were working hard to support their families.

As for the treatment itself, NCIM’s Grace and Abel picked us up at our hotel in San Diego and were simply the best hosts you could ever hope to find. Once at the clinic, our son did not cry when we handed him to the doctor because Abel was in the OR with him throughout the entire procedure which made him feel totally at ease. The procedure went perfectly and his legs almost immediately warmed up (better blood flow) which made both he and us so very happy. Grace stayed with us during Gabe’s treatment and recovery, comforting us and answering all our questions, and then went with my husband to get some food. Amazingly, after they returned with the food our big boy ate an entire plate of chicken and rice thirty. Hardly (30) minutes had elapsed since his treatment!

Within the first week after Gabe’s treatment we began seeing improvements. Among them:

☺He was able to consistently crawl while pulling his legs underneath himself.

☺He was able to climb up 10 stairs without help, pulling his legs up all by himself.

☺ Also, his therapist realized that he was no longer relying on his RGO to move his legs, but was using his own leg muscles to walk!

All of these gains represented firsts for Gabe, mind you.

Now it has been almost two (2) months since our treatment and he is moving his legs from the knee, and has a lot more strength. He has more sensation further down his legs and is a lot faster and more mobile. Also, he is able to move around during play in ways that he never could before.

I would be remiss if I did not point out the vast difference between Gabe’s treatments in China and then Mexico (Nova Cells): The Chinese stem cell & other treatments took place over many weeks, cost $30K USD, and produced some modest physical improvements. The Nova Cell’s primed stem cell treatment took a single day, cost far less than the Chinese treatment, and produced very impressive improvements in Gabe literally coming out of the gate and continuing to this very day.

To say we are all more than delighted with Nova Cells and the wonderful people who make up the NCIM family is an understatement.

Readers should feel free to contact me at kristinsmith32@gmail.com but please put something in the subject line pertaining to stem cells so I do not think it is spam.

Emily Johnson: Ten year old with cerebral palsy turned a corner following her NCIM stem cell treatment

Ten year old Emily Johnson was born 16 weeks premature (weighing in at only 1 lb 6 oz.) and sustained nervous system damage later was manifest as an inability to communicate verbally, problems getting about, and seizures. Her doctors diagnosed her as having cerebral palsy. Like many children with CP Emily benefited from use of a walker and various kinds of therapy. In time her seizures abated and she learned to communicate via a speech device. Her parents, Patrick and Justin, wanted more for Emily, of course. Like most other parents of children with CP they went on a quest for therapies (including novel ones) that might reduce or remediate Emily’s disability and improve or enhance her motor and cognitive functioning. This quest brought them to Nova Cells Institute of Mexico (NCIM) in December 2011 and culminated in Emily’s being treated with pure umbilical cord and Wharton’s Jelly derived stem cells plus “Beacon Factor”, i.e., a proprietary hypoallergenic combination of peptides and cytokines that helps stem cells rapidly home in on and anchor to target tissues (NCIM’s Beacon Factor has been used by NCIM on all types of neurological diseases such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and Parkinson’s disease with great success).

Emily’s response to her NCIM treatment began 2 months following her treatment and is ably captured in this update from her parents that came in this month (May 2012):

Our daughter Emily had a stem cell treatment through NCIM when she was 10 years old.  We set up everything through (NCIM patient educator and care facilitator) Grace and she was wonderful to us.  She was so attentive and loving and I really felt a bond with her over the phone and felt like I knew her and could really feel her excitement for helping kids!

When we got to San Diego, Grace and (her biochemist husband) Abel picked us up and personally escorted us to Mexico!  Traveling to another country can be a bit overwhelming but they made us feel at ease and we really felt like they cared about our little Emily and they were very thorough in explaining how they get the stem cells and treat them and the desired outcome.

Since the treatment we have seen some wonderful changes in our daughter.  Emily is non-verbal and cannot walk without assistance.  Prior to her stem cell treatment she could not ask for help or communicate her needs effectively even with a speech output device. Now, just 5 months after treatment, she clearly articulates her needs using the device and she has also learned how to use an iPad for communication as well.

She has also shown a new level of maturity.  She has demonstrated through testing that she can read well over 200 words.  She is also able to build sentences and follow along with academic activities using her speech device.  Her temperament has also changed.  She used to break down easily and get very frustrated and she was unable to control her emotions.  Now she seems to be more patient and confident in herself.

We feel that these changes are just the beginning and we are hopeful and excited to see even more good things coming from her treatment!

Bryson Chailer: Rapid & impressive improvements in child with spina bifida with 2013 blog updates!

I brought my son, Bryson Chailer, to Mexico during April (2012) for his first stem cell treatment and I just wanted to give you an update. First of all, let me say, Grace and Abel Pena are two of the sweetest, most caring, most hospitable people I have ever met. They are genuine and truly care about their patients and made our experience top notch. The Mexican doctor and his team and the nursing staff were all fantastic as well. We were treated professionally and with love and everything was explained to us so we could understand every single step of the entire process. We couldn’t be more impressed and will send people your way because of our wonderful experience with Nova Cells Institute.

Within 48 hours of his treatment I saw changes in Bryson and want to share these with everyone: I noticed right away that he had more energy, which is almost unimaginable, because he was already a little fire ball anyway, but he was wound for sound after the stem cell implantation! I noticed right away that he slept more soundly that night and was not tossing and turning and having interrupted sleep. He slept this way last night as well. Bryson has a vesicostomy due to bladder issues, reflux into his kidneys, and the catheter not working properly. This is temporary and to give his bladder a rest and time to repair and will be reversed. Since he urinates out of the stoma, his diaper is wet only at the top and I noticed the morning after the stem cells, his diaper was wet from top to bottom, which I think means he had been urinating, not only from the stoma, but from his penis as well. His diaper was just saturated all in the front. I noticed this same thing this morning. He pooped in the middle of the night and had not been given any kind of stool softener or enema, which is usually what we have to do to get him to poop. He pooped this morning without any enema also. His appetite has increased tremendously. He is eating more food and more often.

Also, more recently Bryson has begun having movement in his right foot and toes! He has always had movement in his left foot and toes, but never on his right foot and toes (Bryson’s level of spina bifida is at L1-L5, so he is paralyzed from the waist down). Having movement in his feet and toes is astounding! I don’t think he has any sensory or sensation yet, but he definitely has something going on to have movement. He wiggles his toes when I run my nails down the bottom of his feet. He is actually responding to the Babinski’s reflex test, which makes your toes flex outward when stimulated.

These are just the few things I’ve seen in my son since his treatment by NCIM. I will let you know of any other improvements as they happen.

Just wanted to share some progress I saw in Bryson last night! I noticed when he was on his tummy, he lifted his right leg off the ground and held it there for quite some time! I was just sitting there watching in amazement! Both of his legs are moving like crazy at night too!

My mom and I were at Alco today letting Bryson pick out a toy and when he rides in the shopping cart, his legs usually just hand down and dangle, but he actually straightened his left leg from the dangling, bended position! Mom and I both just looked at each other and I bent it back down and he lifted it again, and again! One happy momma and one happy Nana! Praise God for taking the stem cells right where they need to be! Bryson continues to make progress every single day!

Such great news to share!!!! Bryson just went to therapy and the therapist says his left leg is definitely moving and extending by using his quads and hamstrings that are firing! Also, his right hip flexsor is firing! God is making the stem cells work quicker than we could ever even imagine! To God be the glory!

Take That Spina Bifida!!!!!

Bryson doing leg lifts. This video was uploaded from an Android phone

Knew I would get a good report from the therapist! It just keeps on getting better! Bryson now has slight firing in his left hip! So, he has active hamstring and quad function in the left leg, now slight firing of the left hip, active firing in the right hip, and movement in both feet and toes! God is so good and thank you Jesus!

Update on Bryson since stem cell treatment! WARNING-may contain too many details and too much information! Lol!

Because Bryson has spina bifida, he has what’s called neurogenic bladder and bowel. This means the nerves don’t get signals to the brain to go potty like everyone else, so he has to take stool softeners and laxatives on a daily basis in order to go potty. He is currently refusing to take his meds and I have tried everything and I was at my wits end, so I’ve just left it in God’s hands for the past several days, and without any medication, he has pooped totally on his own, with no stool softener or laxatives! He also felt stomach pains for the first time ever from having diarrhea, which should not happen to someone who is paralyzed from the waist down! This may not sound exciting to most people, but to a mom of a child with spina bifida, this is huge! Go stem cells go! I’ve never thanked Jesus for poop and a stomach ache before, but you bet I am now!!!!!

I’m one excited momma right now! Bryson just crawled on his hands and knees for the first time! He crawled 4 big steps before his legs gave way! He has never done anything but army crawl, using his arms, with his legs dragging behind him! He actually crawled on on his hands and knees by sitting on his knees and pulling them forward by using his legs! Yay! My God is so good all the time! Thank you Jesus for your continued healing! Go stem cells go!

Kara Underwood commented on TLC (July 23, 2012)

Praying for Mama! God is still the Great Physician and Healer and the bible says that if you are all believing in total healing, and you are all standing in faith together, your Mama will be healed! Something to think about that will make a huge difference in her quality of like is stem cell treatment. Stem cell transplants are doing phenomenal things for so many diseases today and my son, age 3, who has spina bifida and is paralyzed from the waist down, got stem cell treatment 3 months ago and he is already seeing major results! He is moving his toes, crawling on his hands and knees and is walking in braces with a walker now! He is also off all medications as well! God led us down the path of stem cells for our son and He is making sure those stem cells go right where they need to be in his body and my son is being healed more and more every day! Praise God! God bless your entire family and you are all in my prayers, especially Mama 🙂

 Bryson is getting so good at walking in braces with his walker! Miss Elsie is just there for added support and barely has to touch his walker now! He’s doing all the work totally on his own! I am so proud of my little man! We were told Bryson would absolutely NEVER do this and look at him go! Praise God! Nova Cells Institute and their stem cells rock!

LATEST ENTRIES ON BRYSON’S BLOG– 2013

Thursday, February 14, 2013

It’s been so long since I’ve posted and figured it was about time to stop my busy life for about 5 mins to give an update! Shame on me for not taking time until now! Let’s see….. Bryson is still continues to make progress after his stem cell treatment last year and he is walking so great in his RGO braces, using his walker. He’s really become quite the pro at it actually! He still has the vesicostomy in place, but we have been noticing that his bladder capacity seems to be increasing, which is great news. He is crawling on all fours these days and is getting so much stronger and is able to do just about anything. He has a wheelchair now for his main means of getting around, but he tells us that when he gets bigger and is grown up that he will not need his wheelchair because he will be able to stand and walk on his own! We love his positive outlook! He tells his legs, “In the name of Jesus, move legs!” He is commanding that mountain to move just like the bible tells us to! We are very excited to announce that we will be taking Bryson back to Nova Cells Institute in Mexico on April 9th for his second stem cell treatment. We can’t wait to see what results this second round of stem cells brings for him. We will most likely take him to an intensive physical therapy program in another state about 4 to 6 months after the treatment this time. The planning is already in full-swing for the 3rd Annual Barrels for Bryson event and it will be held in September of this year. This one will be even bigger and better than the last one! God has blessed us so much in the past year and we see bright things ahead for our future! We give Him thanks, praise, honor and glory for ALL these blessings and for ALL future blessings! Our faith in God’s healing for Bryson is still as strong as ever and we know God has many great things planned for our sweet baby boy. Bryson is growing up to be a mighty man of God and we know that God will see to it that he prospers in everything he does in life. Reports of more progress to come after the treatment in April, so stay tuned!!!!!

We have been busy, busy, busy this year! Bryson has made progress by leaps and bounds and he actually starts pre-k on Monday. My goodness, where has the time gone? Our lil guy is growing and getting so big and has been crawling like a champ these days, and I don’t mean army crawling like he used to, I mean crawling on all fours, and he stays on his knees most of the time. This is such progress! He has gotten so much stronger and his balance is improving more and more and his core and lower back are getting stronger as well. He cognitive skills are through the roof! He is so very smart! He continues to walk great in his RGO braces and uses the walker like a pro. The 3rd Annual Barrels 4 Bryson event is just around the corner in September and we are praying for a super turnout so we can purchase a much needed piece of exercise equipment for the house. He needs an exercise bike called the RT-300 that uses e-stim (electric muscle stimulators) for his legs to gain some muscle mass. All the weight bearing in the world and all the stem cells in the world won’t do any good if he doesn’t have the muscles in his legs and hips to support his weight, so he needs this therapy equipment desperately. Of course, nothing is covered by any insurance and it’s quite costly. $26,000 to be exact! Yikes! Please be in agreement with us in asking the Lord to supply our financial needs this year. God has blessed us so much and we know he hears our prayers and we thank Him and glorify Him always! Bryson’s bladder seems to be gaining capacity way more with this stem cell treatment and he sometimes even poops all on his own, without having to do the enema. Yay for pee and poop! Oh, the things that excite and impress a mom of a kid with spina bifida! We are so excited to see what God has in store for Bryson throughout his life. We know for a fact God has healed Bryson and continues to show us His healing more and more every day, as He is placing those stem cells right where they need to be in his body for healing and growing nerves. Bryson can totally lift his left leg all the way in the air and he continues to move his toes and feet. He even pulled his right leg so hard when getting a diaper change that he pulled it right out of my hand! He has so many little twitches and movements that he didn’t have before and it’s so exciting to see these changes. We are about to start hippo therapy (horseback riding) in the fall and after the barrel race, he is going to be getting a new type of therapy called the Anat Baniel Method, which the therapist manually manipulates the muscles to try to re-route signals to the brain to make the legs move. This is gonna be an exciting year with more exciting things to come! The ABM, along with the therapy bike should make significant improvements for Bryson and we can’t wait to witness what God has planned for our little trooper! Bryson never ceases to amaze us with his growth and improvement throughout his short life. He is definitely a mover and a shaker and has big plans. God has used Bryson, our family, and our experiences to help and improve the lives of others and we couldn’t be happier that He chose us in this way. We are so very proud of this brave little boy and we are so glad God chose us to be his parents. Bryson has truly made us better people and has changed our lives for the better in every way. I promise I won’t take so long to report Bryson’s progress next time! Maybe I can get a few things done now that the little toot will be in school 3hrs a day! Lol! Until next time, always remember…….All things can be done through Christ who strengthens us! God bless you and love you!

We are so excited about an upcoming event for Bryson that’s about to get underway! A Mane Event Stallion Auction will be held on Nov. 11-23 and all proceeds will go toward a very expensive piece of medical equipment Bryson needs to build the muscles in his legs so he can have the muscular support needed for weight-bearing and walking. There are some AMAZING stallions up for auction and we are floored by the response we have gotten from the stallion owners who have so generously donated them. The GigerMd is a therapy bicycle that combines mild estim for muscle-building and it costs a whopping $26,000! Yikes! Things like stem cell treatments, alternative therapies, therapy equipment, and things of that nature are not covered by insurance, but are so needed for Bryson’s ability to walk in the future. The 3rd Annual Barrels 4 Bryson event was a huge success and we raised enough money for the $16,000 stem cell treatment he needs and we are so very thankful for everyone who donated and everyone who participated and made that event possible. God has blessed Bryson so much with these fundraisers so he can continue to get the things he needs to make his quality of life better and they help him to achieve his dream of walking one day. We serve an awesome God, don’t we? We would like to thank Dr. Wes Williams for his continued support in the Barrels 4 Bryson event and we want to extend a huge thank you to Erin Kemp, Crystal Nichols, my mom, Kathy Russell, and my niece, Kenzi Pogue for putting this new annual event together for Bryson. We would also like to thank Arron Watson, a very talented song-writer and Texas country artist, for taking notice of this event and generously donating a signed guitar for this auction. Also, for the people who have donated other items for people to bid on. We love you guys! It blows us away at the amount of support everyone has shown, and continues to show, Bryson. He WILL WALK and we thank everyone who has been a part of his journey. We would never be able to afford these things for him without the generous donations of everyone involved in these events. God bless all of you and thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! May God richly bless each of you!

First cancer patient ever treated by NCIM in full remission (And still is more than 4 years later – August 2015)

The very first cancer patient to be treated as part of NCIM’s unique treatment program (March 2011) is now in full remission. You can read about the program by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/rpLikU. NCIM’s Grace Pena offered this firsthand account of this man’s course of care and response:

“One 71 year old gentleman with cancer of the prostate, metastasized to the liver and bone was treated almost 8 months ago. When he arrived at NCIM’s contracted hospital he was in a very sad state, i.e., his legs were all swollen, his PSA was in the neighborhood of 650, he had no energy, a deadly yellowish greenish color to his face and was naturally feeling horrible. On top of all this he was in great pain and could not urinate. The doctors first controlled his swelling and drained out 3-4 liters of urine from his bladder. After a week of stabilizing him (he was literally dying), the NCIM immunological treatment program was started. Within three days his face was pinkish and his hands were getting pink. He was eating so well that the staff could not believe it. After the 7th primed donor granulocyte treatment he was walking 1/2 mile around the hospital, and feeling great. He was feeling so good in fact that he decided to return to his home state of Washington to finish up a million dollar real estate deal. NCIM doctors and staff protested wanting him to finish the entire course of therapy but he was adamant about getting home, but promised to return and complete his care once his real estate deal was completed. This he did. By October his US oncologist reported that his PSA is 1.1, his prostate is smaller than a normal 20 year olds, and he could find no cancer at all. Also, his Alkaline Phosphatase level which was about 2,000 during his treatment had dropped to something around 89.”

UPDATE 3-27-2012: Patient #1 is still in full remission.

UPDATE 8-2-2015: Patient #1 is still in full remission!

UPDATE on Spencer sent NCIM on 10-20-2011 from Mrs. (Jennifer) Tomc:

We had an appointment with Spencer’s Neurosurgeon this morning to follow-up on his tethered cord.  His exact words as we were leaving were, “I would chase you away from detethering surgery with a whip.”

Great news for us for sure!  We thank God and each of you for the supplements and therapies and support and information to turn this around for Spencer.  We will continue all of these to continue his healing.
