Cameron Lee Petersen Of Port Charlotte, Florida was diagnosed with "Optic Nerve Hypoplasia" in May of 2006. He turned 1 year old on January 12, 2007. His vision is thought to be no better than 20/400, which is legally blind. His family went online to www.stemscellchina.com and www.beikebiotech.com and has contacted their medical consultant, Kirshner Ross-Vaden. They had miraculous results with "Umbilical Cord Stem Cell". They use cord stem cells only, in the Hangzhou Hospital in Hangzhou City. China has opened five spots for Children with Optic Nerve Hypoplasia to be considered as case studies. Hangzhou Hospital had only two spots left and Cameron has been selected to participate in this case study.
The treatment includes several stem cell transfers of 10-15 million stem cells over a period of 20 to 30 days with rehabilitation of 6 days per week. The stem cells are transfused intravenously via blood stream. With each stem cell transplant, they also give the patient a transfusion of "Neural Growth Factors" to encourage the stem cells to find their targets and transform into new neurons.
The Hangzhou Hospital has established a 98% improvement rate with patients and that in itself speaks volumes. The hospital room is set up so Cameron's parents, Melissa and Zachery, will be able to stay with him the entire time.
HBO=Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment. This is the follow up treatment after returning home. Cameron will need to be in the HBO treatment chamber for five days per week for the first year. The suggested cost of this home treatment is between 10-20k.
I have helped Cameron Petersen by making and designing the website and selling the bracelets in my school and telling others about the benefits of stem-cell reasearch. I have also participated in some fund rasiors for Cameron.
