In 2011, my father, Robert Vasquez, was diagnosed with Scleroderma, a chronic disease that is believed to have been caused by an allergic reaction to a chemical at his place of employment. Scleroderma is a rare disease that involves hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues. Roughly 200,000 people a year are affected by this disease and although treatment helps, there is NO CURE. It can affect the blood vessels, internal organs, and the digestive tract.
Robert was introduced to stem cell therapy in early April 2018. On May 9, 2018, he received his first treatment. His outcome was great and he, for the most part, felt like himself again. Stem cell therapy is described as taking the diseased tissues from the body and replacing them with the healthy cells. Each treatment costs roughly $15,000. Because the therapy has not yet received complete FDA approval, each treatment has to be paid out of pocket. We appreciate your support!
