Sight for the Blind?

Matthew 15:31
So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

We have begun doing research on stem cell treatment for repairing the optic nerves. What we have been learning is so exciting!!! China is currently doing this using umbilical cord blood (NOT aborted babies). They have around an 85% success rate right now and it is increasing. We are still in the initial process of our research, but we are hoping and praying that this is something that we could take Sierra to get. We would appreciate your prayers. This would be a huge step that has the potential of having miraculous results.

Here are some videos about one boy who had the procedure done.

Hoping to go to HBOT in July! Maybe we will get to meet. My 5 year old will start school mid-late August and I hope to go before then.

How exciting the progress that is being made with the umbilical stem cells. Why won't the US just get on that band wagon and leave the embryonic alone. Then is would be so much more accessible for people here who need it.

We have been praying regularly for Sierra and y'all since her birth. She is a beautiful, sweet baby.
