Please help a fellow car enthusiast
I know some of you may think this is spam, but it is not. I am simply keeping my word to a friend that I'd help to spread his story.
A friend of many in the car scene over in Fort Walton Beach is trying to raise money for stem cell treatment. Rather than say anything, I will quote his own story.
Stem Cell Contributions for Lance :
My name is Lance Williams and I have been given the opportunity to receive a stem cell treatment in China May- June 2007. The stem cells are Umbilical Cord stem cells so there is no harm to any human life. Unfortunately, the United States does not offer any stem cell treatments. China is one of a few countries that do offer it plus they have the most accurate facts, video proof, and success rate treating spinal cord injury. I was hit by a car while riding my motorcycle at 37MPH on May 10, 2004 and was diagnosed as a C4-C5 Incomplete Quadriplegic. I was paralyzed from the neck down and given a 5% chance to ever walk again. After 8 months I was able to walk with a walker and a leg brace. I still require the brace on my right leg today. I have almost no hand movement in my right hand and minimal right triceps. Feeling is not completely normal throughout my body. If I am able to raise the money ($30,000) to go to China I may end up being the first spinal cord injury American that is able to walk to receive stem cells. Most SCI patients that have received the treatment were at the point I was when I first got injured and got wonderful gains back so the possibility of return could be much greater for me. America will never know what stem cells can hopefully do if we never send people out to try. I am asking all who are willing to give or come up with any ideas to raise enough money for my trip to please contact me.
