Sarah – Spina Bifida Stem Cell Patient

This interview was conducted in Portuguese and the video has English subtitles. Sarah traveled from Ecuador to China to receive transplants of adult stem cells. She has Spina Bifida, a condition which begins in the womb and leads to a malformation of the spinal cord along with other problems. Near the end of her treatment her mother recorded this interview for StemCellsChina about the improvements she's see in Sarah's condition and their hopes for the future.
