Ariana's Stem Cell Transplant & Medical costs

Personal message

We humbly appeal to all to assist us in reaching our target for Arianas second and final stem cell transplant in Mumbai for 2019.

Ariana was delivered at 28 weeks via emergency c section, her umbilical flow was diminished due to my ill health. At 1kg she had to be resuscitated, this led to Hypoxia (inadequate oxygen to her brain), this resulted in her acquiring an incurable neurological condition called Arrested Hydrocephalus (build-up of CSF Fluid in the brain). Having spent 9 weeks in NICU, she is now 4 years old and it has been a tough road thus far with many setbacks regarding her development, many other conditions have followed.


After having a VP Shunt inserted into her brain in January 2017 to assist with the increasing pressure, she now has Spastic Mixed/ Diplegic Cerebral Palsy, PVL, Global developmental delay, Epilepsy, Sensory Processing disorder, ADHD, is autistic,Sensorineural Hearing loss both ears. Shes is dependent on her parents for daily living due to nerve damage in her brain.

Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation is a treatment available in Mumbai. Stem Cells have regenerative capabilities that are able to replace, repair, regenerate damaged nerves in the brain. These cells are extracted from the tissue in your bone marrow, are multiplied into millions and injected into the spine which joins your Cerebrospinal fluid, once it gets to the brain is starts to identify damaged nerves and starts the repair process. 

At least 2 or 3 Stem Cell Transplants are required which will improve her quality of life. Other medical costs include costs for specialists doctors in Constantia Cape town, communication devices and mobility chairs, therapy costs,a caregiver, Foot orthotics, special needs schooling, etc.

The first stem cell was done in November 2018 and we now need an amount of USD6000 for the second stem cell . Her improvements thus far are more responsive to command, concentration levels have improved, Hyperactivity reduced, Repetition of more words, improvement in cognitive abilities, We are appealing to anyone who can contribute towards assisting us financially towards the much needed second and final stem cell.
