Hi, My name is franco,
I have a very rare illness called 'Stiff Person Syndrome'.
For 4 years i have been struggling with this crippling disease which manifested when i was 47.
From my endless research i discovered that i had this disease 3 years ago but UK doctors didn't listen.
I have finally been diagnosed with SPS...it effects less than 1 person in over 1 million.
The illness is brought on by stress and anxiety and i have now spent the last 2 years in a wheelchair.
I have always worshipped my body and have never smoked, taken recreational drugs or a drinker.
All my life i have been a keen sportsman and kept myself in shape.
SPS is causing cell death in my body where the antibodies are causing my own immune system to attack my nervous system.
Stem cell therapy is the only known cure for this syndrome where stem cells are grown from my own marrow bone after it is drilled out from my hip...before this is done my immune system is taken down to zero.
I welcome any help and support to raise the ¬£308,000 that is required for treatment...¬£4,000 has already been raised.
I wish you all good health and eternal happiness.
