After Colleen’s neurologist showed us her MRI and explained everything that had happened, one of the first things I did when I got home was to research brain neuron growth. There were a few articles about research being conducted, but nothing that looked like it would happen for a while. I even emailed the addressed that I could find, expressing the hope I had for our daughter.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I discovered the Duke is going to be conducting a stem cell study and there was a doctor in California that had been treating children with cord stem cells with amazing results. I know that this is a relatively new treatment for CP..but there is HOPE!
It would be a long journey, but I would go to the ends of the earth to help Colleen in any way we could. I started a YouCaring fundraiser, and anything donated will go directly to Colleen receiving this stem cell therapy. I explain more of Colleen story in the link! Thank you so much for taking to time to read! We appreciate any and all donations and of course, would love prayers! ❤
