More Info

My name is Justin.  I have been suffering with chronic back pain since the age of 16. As I approached my mid 20's the pain became increasingly worse, preventing me from living the active life I always wanted to.

Ive had surgery once for a herniated disc in my neck but the worst of my problems is of course the hardest to treat and the reason why I am asking for help. It was just a year ago when doctors finally realized that the cause of my debilitating pain in my mid and upper back is due to severe degenerative disc disease. 

Ive seen dozens of doctors, in all the related back pain fields and have tried every therapy 'solution' for years. None were able to provide any lasting cure.

There is some hope though. My doctors do believe that adult stem cell therapy could be my long-time, if not my ever lasting fix.  By regenerating my discs, it is strongly believed that the pain I wake to every morning and stays with me the entire day, will cease to exist. 

The issue of course is the money. See the FDA has not approved stem cell therapy for chronic back pain in the United States and it could be years before they do.  However, nearly every other industrialized nation provides similar treatment if you can pay. From Israel, Ecuador, Australia to Britain, it thrill me that I do have options.

I work hard as a freelance marketer, as much as I can do, working from home and putting in the time where I can. I save well and try not to spend too much of my earnings.  This is not enough.  I have a big price tag to pay for my surgery. I am counting on you.
