Stem cell therapy for autism: Kenneth Kelley TV News Story

July 2012 — Update from Marty Kelley on her son Ken’s progress following stem cell therapy for autism at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama.

“Ken has gone to summer camp (overnight) for the week! He was so excited to go! Ken claims that he is no longer scared of the dark and can handle summer camp…It feels very strange to not have him home this week. He is having such a good time.

This is a major event in our lives. If you understand the type of autism Ken had, you would know what a miracle this is. To clarify, Ken is at camp on his own without any support or an aide–he is just like all the other campers. Pray for the families that are still struggling and cannot do this with their children. Stem cells have changed our lives.” — Marty Kelley (Ken’s mother)

Stem cell treatment doing wonders for autistic boy

A year ago, 9-year-old Kenneth Kelley couldn’t read. Prior to the age of 7, Kenneth couldn’t even talk. He was diagnosed with autism at an early age. Now his parents say he reads all the time. “It’s amazing,” says Marty Kelley, Kenneth’s mother, “he was no where near that even in December. He just started a little bit a month ago. He picked up the books and started reading.”

Kenneth received stem cell therapy for autism at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama.

His parents say his sentence structure has improved and he’s more aware of his surroundings. He even remembers birthdays, days of the week and he can tell time. “We’ve just been waiting for the new things and the gains to stop coming and they’re not stopping. They’re coming every day,” says Marty Kelley.

Autistic Boy will Travel to Abroad for Adult Stem Cell Treatment

A trip overseas is in the works for a seven year old boy named Matthew from Central Florida. The boy and his family are traveling not for a vacation, but with the hope of curing the boys autism, which was diagnosed when he was 18 months old.

“He wasn’t born with autism,” Matthew’s father Daniel Faiella said.

Matthew began to lose his ability to speak as he got older.

The last few months have shown promise. He is beginning to interact with others and can now draw. This change in behavior can more than likely be attributed his use of a hyperbaric chamber to increase blood flow and get more oxygen to his brain.

While researching their son’s condition, Matthew’s parents learned of a non-controversial stem cell treatment being offered in Central America. The stem cells used at the Central American clinic are harvested from umbilical cord blood, and not embryos.

The Faiella’s believe that much like the chamber, the stem cells will help repair the damage, but at a much faster rate.

“In essence, adult stem cells are creating more blood vessels to the brain, more oxygen to he brain, where it’s rejuvenating brain cells,” Faiella said.

The family expects the potential of a full recovery to be within grasp. Earlier this year, a South Florida girl made tremendous improvement following treatment for autism at the Institute of Cellular Medicine.

“He’s reaching back through his world, and we’re reaching back and we’re grabbing a hold of him,” said Matthew’s father.

At the end of February 2008, Matthew and his parents will depart on their journey.
