The family and friends of Christian Churchill are uniting to raise money for a stem cell infusion.

Christian developmentally regressed at 12- 16 months old and was diagnosed with Autism by age 2. Since then he has continued to experience setbacks in speech, cognition, and social/behavioral aspects. All of this combined with his medical problems; absence seizures, mitochondria dysfunction, allergies, and chronic intestinal dysbiosis, makes his daily activities a struggle. The unique properties of stem cells to hone in to damaged tissue, regulate immune and inflammatory response and facilitate repair of damaged tissue makes it the optimal treatment for Christian right now. While the US is still several years away from offering this for children we feel that it has been well researched and proven effective in many other countries. We have discussed this at length with his current physicians who are all excited about our decision to pursue this treatment for him. The procedure cost is $12,000 plus we will need $5,000 for airfare and travel expenses. To date we have raised $11,000!!! We are so excited by the support of our friends and family! We couldn’t do it without you!
We need help to raise the money needed for travel expenses. Thank you all for your support and prayers!
