For the past 24 years, Jenel has experienced a steady decline in her ability to live life to the fullest. Jenel is a 49-year-old, single mom of two boys who has multiple sclerosis (MS). I have known Jenel for 11 years. When I first met her I had no idea that she had MS. She was able to walk normally although she went up and down stairs slowly. She was so full of life and had such a positive attitude about everything that I was shocked when she shared her health concerns with me. Over the past 11 years I have witnessed a steady deterioration of her motor skills. She is no longer able to walk unassisted and when she has to move over long distances she uses a motorized scooter. Her energy level which was very high is now easily fatigued. Makes it difficult to keep up with her two very active sons!

Hello all!
Thanks to all of your generosity, I was able to have the Stem cell procedure performed on October 11. A week out from the procedure I am already starting to see some small changes in my condition. I have not had the fatigue problems I was having to take medication for and have been able to discontinue the prescription for that. I also had nightly cramps in my legs and feet, which I haven’t had since the treatment. To some, they may seem like small changes, but they are big to me.
They say it will take 3-6 months for the new stem cells to get in there and show their work.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers for continued improvement.

Because things moved so quickly, the additional funds needed to provide follow up care have not been raised yet. The follow up care still needed for the next year is about $3000.
Any help that you can give is appreciated.

I thank God from the bottom of my heart that through the generosity of so many people, I now have Hope.

Hi again, I just called them and they will take care of it. Just really wish we were all closer. I have missed so much by not having much contact with "The Blakely's".

Jenel I just went in and donated for you - I think I may have messed up because I did not leave the message on the memo line. I am going to try to contact them and make a correction. Praying that you can get this done.
