I was diagnosed with a NMO which affects the Optic Nerve and Spinal Cord which could cause me to go blind and become paralyzed.

I was diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome and NMO in October when I went blind in both of my eyes and was hospitalized for 18 days. My vision has been restored some in my left eye, but I was told that I will never regain my vision in my right eye.

I also get random and sometimes painful sensations up and down my legs which are caused because of damage to my spinal cord and my central nervous system.

Through research I found that Stem Cell Therapy has been abl to restore vision for people who have been blind for years as well as repair damage to the spinal cord, and the cells come from the patients own bone marrow. The therapy cost 20k and that is what this fundraisers purpose is for. I am hoping to be able to see in both eyes, to drive again or even feel safe walking or being out at night.
