Aleš Denner (9yrs) suffers from a severe form of Duschenne muscular dystrophy. His chance for healing is stem cell application in Weizman Center in Tel Aviv. Please help his family raise enough money for the second application of stem cells next April.

Aleš Denner is a 9-year-old boy from the Czech Republic. He suffers from a severe form of Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). This genetical disease prevents muscles from regenerating and it has already put Aleš on a wheel chair. After years of looking for a possible treatment for this fatal desease and trying to enter various clinical trials a spark of hope appeared in Tel Aviv. The International Center for Cell Therapy and Cancer Immunotherapy of the Weizman Center proposes a new method of stem cell application with laser and ultra sound therapy which facilitate the correct placement of the stem cells in muscle tissue and stimulate the growth of new healthy muscles. This clinic is the only place in the world where such method is used and Aleš is the first boy with DMD treated this way. He has already undergone the first successful application of stem cells in October this year and will need a new one in April. Ales with professor Shimon Slavin after the first stem cell application in Weizman Center, Tel AvivEach application costs 42,000 USD, which is far above his family's budget. Therefore, I have decided to launch an international campaign to help my nephew raise 21,000 USD (530,800 CZK), half of the necessary amount. This way you can donate from abroad through your Paypal account. Your contribution will go straight to the payment of medical bills. The second half and the money for travelling will be raised through charities and sponsors in the Czech Republic.

I would like to thank you for all your contributions, they will change the future of a real person. Please, contribute and share with your friends. We can all help Aleš and give hope to other children with DMD around the world.
