Medical challenges don't stop these heroic parents

The morning after her son’s (Ryan) diagnosis of cerebral palsy at the age of two, Mary Schneider remembered that she had saved her son’s cord blood in a cord blood bank. After an exhaustive search, she found a doctor willing to infuse the stem cells from the blood. In October 2005, Ryan underwent a simple procedure. For 20 minutes, the stem cells were dripped though an IV in the back of his hand. This was followed by a saline drip for two hours. Ryan went home and Mary waited.

Today, Ryan is a normal four-year-old who walks and talks. He is at his normal weight and his development is at or above his age level. Although there is no guarantee that all children will respond as positively, the results were dramatic. More research is being done.
