My name is Oralis and I am 45 years old. As you may know, I have struggled with Parkinson's disease for the past 8 years and psuedo-gout for at least 10 years. I have been utilizing alternative medicine options such as sauna, ozone therapy, and natural supplements, in addition to traditional medications to help relieve the debilitating symptoms this disease causes me.
Daily I deal with great stiffness, rigidity, and tremors in all extremities. The tremors have recently moved to my face. The Parkinsons's symptoms are also the cause of fatigue, overall weakness, and challenging balance issues. I rely heavily on my oldest daughter who is 11 years old to help me get dressed everyday and to help me care for my 6 year old twins.
Recently, through one of my physicians, I became aware of amniotic stem cell treatment. Through amniotic stem cells, Regenerative Medical Group has helped many individuals who suffer from very difficult so-called "incurable" conditions, including Parkinson's disease. Stem cells are capable of creating new cells in order to regenerate heart tissues, nerve tissues, muscle tissues, and more. Stem cells create new cells to help the body heal. Amniotic stem cells are taken from the amniotic fluid of cesarean donors. These cells are unique in that they do not come from bone marrow or embryos, and they have unique healing potential. The process is highly controlled. The cells are procured safely through an FDA approved process, and administered by trained Medical Practitioners.
Stem cells provide a unique possibility for healing, and they may be a way for me to find healing. My goal is to raise $19,500 by 9/25/17 for this stem cell treatment that is not covered by insurance. Thank you so much for your prayers and support during this difficult time as we look forward to healing. I want to thank God for bringing this treatment across my path and it is my hope that he will be honored and glorified whatever the outcome may be. I hope and trust he will manifest himself through my life. My CaringBridge website is: www.caringbridge.org/visit/oraliscornelius
