  • I had to travel out of the country for stem cell..my autistic son has improved..thank goodness parents can now do it in the United States. stem cell changes lives..thankyou Texas

  • It was stated on channel 4 news that this therapy could also be used for individuals with autism. Any information provided would be greatly appreciated. I understand that if this does become law that it would be effective September 1. How would one get more information in regards to this research/therapy?
