When Robin Schmetzer was diagnosed with spinocerebellar ataxia type 2, his doctors told him that there was nothing they could do for him. Robin’s mother did not want to accept this and began to search the Internet for alternative therapies. After extensive online research, she found Beike Biotechnology. Robin’s ataxia had progressed so far that he was barely able to eat or walk on his own. He felt abandoned by the doctors.
