Hi
my name is Deb Broadbent i am 53 and live in Carrum Downs Victoria, Australia
and i have Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS)
I am a Mother and a Grandmother to a beautiful little girl Lara, it breaks my heart that i cant play much with her, because of this disability, I was diagnosed back in 1996, it didn't impact my life that much then, but over the years it has progressed, to the point my walking has deteriorated and i have to use two fore arm crutches to get around indoors and a wheelchair for outdoors, other symptoms i experience are vision problems, numbness, fatigue, bladder issues and chronic pain, medication cant help me, so when i learned of a treatment called HSCT a type of stem cell transplant, i researched everything i could on the subject, it can halt and even reverse MS, i know of two ladies from Victoria and one in NSW who have undergone this procedure with great success, their lives are back on track they are walking well and living a normal life.

I am unable to get this treatment in Australia, and would need to go to Bangalore India where a wonderful man by the name of Dr Amit Rauthan is helping people to beat this dreadful disease every day, one lady from Boronia had the procedure with Dr Rauthan in December last year and is improving every day.

The treatment in India would cost $65,000 including travel and accommodation, age acceptance is up to 55 years old, so time is running out for me. I am looking for any assistance to fund this life changing journey to halt the progression of this monster called MS

Thanks for listening to my story
