I previously posted that my twelve year old son, Ryan, is legally blind from a condition he was born with called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (ONH) (read about it here).  We have prayed for years for a miracle to help restore Ryan's vision or improve it.  Recently while doing a web search on ONH, I found out they have been successfully treating it in China with non-embryonic stem cell therapy.  We were so excited that this wonderful opportunity was brought to our attention.

I contacted Beike (BAY-kuh) Biotechnology for more information about treating Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (ONH) with umbilical cord stem cells.  They very quickly replied and sent me all sorts of video testimonials, treatment protocol information and a medical form to return if we wanted to pursue this option and see if Ryan could be treated. I filled out the medical form and sent some medical records to them.  I was so excited to see this email the very next day!
