NMO (Devic's Disease)
Organized by: LaKasha Starks
Hello!! I am 33 years of age and was diagnosed with Devic's Disease in March of 2009! I lost vision in my right eye but still had vision in my left eye! During the time it wasn't bad because I still had great vision! In 2015 I had a relapse and now I have optic nerve damage in both eyes! At this point I am not able to drive or work because I have low vision! I research port unities to regenerate my optic nerve and it's quite expensive! Not having a job and living in a low poverty area it's difficult to get special needs met! The procedure is AStem Cell Tgerapy that uses tissues from my body and regrow them into optic nerve cells!! This will change my life completely!! I will then be able to take care of my eight year old daughter and gain my independent back!
