Karrie O'Connor, 59 years, Multiple Sclerosis

Date of Birth: 1951

Home Country: Australia

My name is Kerrie O'connor. I am married and am 59 years of age. I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 19 years. I first realised something was amiss when, quite suddenly, I lost vision in my left eye and the left half of my body went quite numb.

I went to my local doctor who in turn sent me to a neurologist. He did all the tests such as an MRI scan, lumbar puncture and a number of neuro tests. Then, I was told the news that I has MS.

All my systems returned to normal for sixteen years. In the last 3 years, I have become a lot worse: fatigue; my left leg does not want to do what I want it to do; everything that goes with MS, I have. I was put on injections which, I still have every day. I just didn't seem to be showing much improvement.

I did lots of research on it and decided to e-mail the centre about what they do regarding adult stem cells. The treatment sounded as if it was for me, so in November 2009, my husband and I went for stem cell treatment. We decided if I could have a better quality of life, we would give it a try. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I have been home now for nine weeks and I feel so much better. I can stand for a longer time on my legs, my balance has improved, my walking has slightly improved and I can walk for longer periods of time unaided. & I look healthy once more. I can only hope that I keep improving as much in the next nine weeks as I have in the past nine.

The centre was just fabulous; very professional in everything they do. I was so lucky to have been able to go for treatment.

My family can see the improvement in me.
