Family Back in Central Texas After Chinese Stem-Cell Treatment

In hopes to allow their young daughter to see, Jason and Rosetta Fedelem of Central Texas decided to take their daughter Sierra to China in order to receive experimental stem cell treatment. Due to complications at birth resulting in a lack of oxygen to Sierra’s brain and lungs, doctors said she will never walk, talk, see or eat on her own. The couple selected a firm in China who use stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood for the treatment. While in China, Sierra received stem cell injections once a week. Given through an IV, the injections pumped 10 to 15 million stem cells into her in about 30 minutes. So far the improvements 20-month-old Sierra Fedelem has experienced from the stem cell treatments have been small. She can now sit unsupported for short periods of time and is able to stand with assistance for a couple of minutes rather than a few seconds like before. According to the physicians it will take about four months to fully work.
