REASON FOR TREATMENT
Daniel Mbohli has begun suffering from ALS in 2008. He first noticed weakness in March of 2008, in right hand fingers. The weakness has progressed with time until Daniel was unable to hold or lift anything with his right hand. Around the same time Daniel's right leg started to feel weak, which made any movement difficult.
The disease continued degenerating fast, and has affected his left side shortly. Daniel now suffered from muscle atrophy in both his upper and lower limbs.
In addition to weakness, Daniel's condition was followed by stiffness and cramps in his legs. He was unable to take care of himself anymore.
In order to better Daniel's quality of life, his family searched for alternative treatment options outside their native Cameroon. Learning about stem cell treatment, they have decided to come to China.
