About 18 months ago, at age 36, two months after my wedding and two months before my daughter was to be born, I suffered a massive stroke. It left me unable to walk or use my left arm. This was totally unexpected, as I have been healthy most of my life. As I continue to struggle with the effects of the stroke, I have begun to research various treatment options.
During the course of my research, I found Stemedix, a stem cell therapy center in Tampa, FL. During the stem cell transplant, doctors will use my own stem cells to generate new, healthy cells to put back into my body. They have had great success in helping stroke victims regain movement in their bodies.
