My name is Simone Leek. I’m 21 years old and I am in desperate need of your help. I am scheduled for stem cell therapy on August 17 of this year, in Water Robins Georgia. This therapy will eliminate the need for many of the treatments I now endure.
At the age of 10, I was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes Type I. At the age of 16, I was on a ventilator and told that I almost went into a coma. At the age of 18 I developed high blood pressure. Last year, at the age of 20 years old I gave birth to a stillborn during my sixth month of pregnancy. Following this my health continued to decline. I developed congestive heart failure, kidney failure (I receive dialysis 3 times per week), G.E.R.D (gastroesophageal reflux disease). ,diabetic paresis, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy, which lead to me being declared legally blind in one eye. Although I have tried several doctors, diets, camps and counseling my daily struggle with diet and feeling well have been devastated. I fight every day hoping to one day get better and feel better.

On August 17, 2013 I am scheduled to receive stem cell therapy at the Warner Robins, GA Clinic, Corporate Pointe Suite 400, Warner Robins, GA 31988, by Dr. Monte Slater. I hope this will give me a chance to have my life back.

The amount I am asking for is $8000. The cost for the procedure is $7,000.00. This amount was reduced by the stem cell foundation (original cost $15,000) through funds they secured through outside funding. The additional $1000 I am asking for will cover airfare for me and my Mom to travel to the clinic and hotel room for my Mom during my stay.
I am grateful for whatever amount you feel in your heart to donate. No amount is too small. There’s a saying: You can eat an elephant, if you eat it one bite at a time”.

Thanking you in advance for helping me get my life back
