Help Christy beat MS!
Hi, my name is Christy Barbeau (Eaton) and I suffer from Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS). This disease has been a huge burden on my family. I have been unable to work for years and between the extreme fatigue and muscle weakness, along with the many other symptoms that come with MS, am rarely even able to cook and clean for my family. Since my condition is continually progressing and I have exhausted all treatment options available to me in the U.S., I am planning to travel to Mexico for a life-changing treatment called Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, or HSCT for short. This stem cell transplant will hopefully stop my MS in its tracks and reverse some of the damage that’s already been done, giving me a much better quality of life. Many people have had remarkable results having this procedure done, some even going from a wheelchair to running. Not just walking, but running! Although I hope for the best, even just stopping this terrible disease from ever getting any worse would be life-changing for me. This is why I’m swallowing my pride and asking for help.
