Dear friends, family and members of the public...
I require your assistance with my precious child...
Adriano is my ray of sun shine... He is the greatest of all my blessings... all the while being partially non-verbal and diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy, developmental delay and features of autism spectrum disorder.
These are neurological disorders which restrict Adriano from living a normal life. He is not able to verbalise his hunger or thirst, he does not understand danger ie. he would run towards a moving vehicle or barking dog without thought of sustaining injury.
My son only began to say the word 'hello' at 5 years old.. his speech is restricted to a few words. Neurologists I have consulted in S.A. referred me to therapy; (physical, speech and occupational therapy) which i sent Adriano for weekly for 2 years. This assisted greatly in building his muscle tone and assisting him to walk at nearly 3 years old (together with splints made by an orthotist). Progress has been evident but very slow...
Recent research has proven a new and innovative type of therapy which has assisted greatly in neurological disorders. It is called Stem Cell therapy. Stem cells will be extracted from his hip bone via a fine aspiration needle and injected into his spinal fluid via an injection. Stem cells hold repairing and regenerating properties and thats exactly what it will begin to do for Adriano's brain.
After thoroughly researching the treatment, I know it will bring much benefit to my child but i need your assistance.
This treatment costs $11 000 and is not offered in South Africa or covered by medical insurance... I would need to raise these funds and take Adriano to Mumbai, India for this to take place... I am reaching out to my family, friends, and any member of the public who will be willing to assist me in giving my son the treatment he deserves.
Early intervention is vital hence i appeal to you for your urgent attention.
May God bless you in abundance.
