REASON FOR TREATMENT: Gorica's first diagnosis was MS, Lupus (SLE), and Myasthenia gravis.
In 2005 Gorica was diagnosed with Devic's disease, which is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system in which there are episodes of inflammation and damage to the myelin (fatty, protective covering of nerves) that almost exclusively affect the optic (eye) nerves and spinal cord.
The disease has caused paralysis in Gorica's legs, loss of sensation, as well as bladder and bowel dysfunctions. It had also left Gorica blind in her right eye. With few options left, she decided to come to China for Cell Therapy treatment.
DIAGNOSIS: Devic's disease
BEGINNING OF TREATMENT: Nov. 27th, 2008
CONDITION BEFORE THE TREATMENT: Gorica has been suffering from Devic's disease for 13 years. The disease started with mild attacks, and over the years they have increased in number, accelerating in a way that during the last 3 years it caused Gorica to lose arm function and has confined her to a wheelchair. Prior to the deterioration Gorica was a very active person, but the disease has made her quit her job, and give up her previously active way of life. Since she's lost the ability to use her arms and legs, she had to rely on her family and friends to perform basic daily activities. She had difficulties breathing, could not eat, get dressed or shower on her own and required constant assistance.

Whereas before Cell Therapy implantation Gorica could not move her right hand fingers, after the treatment she could move them easily. She gained muscle tone, strength and more mobility in her upper body.
Following the treatment, Gorica has regained sensation in her legs. Using a lot of strength and determination, Gorica can now move her right foot, something she says she wasn't able to do for years.
Both Gorica and her husband, Ilija say that they see improvement, little, but visible nevertheless, throughout Gorica's body and symptoms. They head back to their home in Australia with a smile, and a hope that more symptoms will lessen as time goes by.
