Dr Alok Sharma strongly recommended that Rowan undergoes stem cell treatment.
Rowan made his way into this world in 17 September 2007, his weight was 1. 620kg.There were numerous complications during his birth, due to that he was in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit for a month. He was diagnosed with severe Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and Sensory Processing Disorder. Due to his condition he is unable to walk, crawl and sit without any support.
There is no cure for Cerebral Palsy, however there are options available to improve the quality of his life. Stem Cell being one of them. This will be done at Neurogen Brain & Spine Institute in India (Mumbai)'among other cost is ongoing therapies, assistive devices, mobile devices, special schooling etc.
The cost for the stem treatment is 12000 USD inclusive of accommodation, pre-operative investigations transport from airport to Neurogen Institute. Excluding flight tickets. There will be additional charges for preoperative medicine and devices - Approximate cost: 500 USD
If I am unable to reach the target, we will go to Jireh Clinic to get his treatment even though it's not effective compared to Neurogen.
I sincerely ask you to make it possible for Rowan to get the Stem Cell treatment. Please assist in any possible way that you can.
