Joanne, I was diagnosed with Fredrich's Ataxia last year, my gait and speech have gone downhill, my writing is terrible. I'm at the point I don't dare to answer the phone. I cannot go up and down the stairs at all.

I'm very glad your stem cell treatment works so well, watching your video, hearing you talk and walk with a cup of water is an encouragement to me.

Can you email me and tell me more about Qingdao Hospital.

Hi,

Before I go for treatment, can I get in touch with you through emails? (I have SCA....a kind of ataxia.....serious.)

All the best,
William.
