In April 2017, Michael underwent a comprehensive stem cell treatment for his muscular dystrophy, an ailment which has critically obstructed his quality of life since he was 12 he fell down and broke his leg while playing with friends. When he was 12, we went to play with friends and when Michael went to the toilet, he fell down and broke his leg. From then, he began to use the chair. His arms started to become weaker, had less power to pick things up, nurse himself, drink water and he had to start using a computer to write, since he couldn’t keep up with the schoolings and he had lots of struggle getting around.
Each year, it became more challenging for him to do his activities. In Brazil, there is no stem cell treatment, and his father, thinking of Michael’s welfare and getting better, brought him to India. As a result, He booked his treatment at Stem Cell Care India hospital. And to everybody’s surprise, Michael has had improvements with the power of his upper limb muscles, enhancements with his trunk, his balance and his self-confidence has improved enormously. He used to feel immense muscle pain, pain that, after the treatment, his family member don’t see any longer. During this year’s treatment, they have already noticed some improvements. He used to feel pain in his ribs and now this has alleviated and his father believes that after roughly six months, he will get more improvements with his muscles, more command in his hands and arms, to keep on doing everything that he has been able to do here, like being able to lock his wheelchair and other things that he was not able to do before and everybody hopes that he keeps improving. It is easy to see that Michael is happier and bubblier now.
