Support Tatiana in making her candle burn brighter

My sister, Tatiana Haas-Castro, has secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Unfortunately, the course of Tatiana’s MS is aggressive and her physical abilities have been greatly effected. Tatiana faces increasing challenges with maintaining her independence. Sadly, there are no FDA approved treatments for secondary progressive MS in the US; however, there is treatment available elsewhere called Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT). This transplant will use her own stem cells, which are reintroduced into her body to halt further progression and/ or greatly reduce Tatiana’s symptoms of MS. Tatiana is on the waiting list for at Clinica Ruiz, a reputable clinic in Puebla, Mexico. Dr. Ruiz is an alumnus of Mayo Clinic and has been treating MS patients for many years. Tatiana’s neurologist has also researched the procedure and Clinica Ruiz and is in agreement with Tatiana’s decision. We are hopeful that this procedure might help reverse much of what MS has taken away from Tatiana.
