Chino Valley resident Eliza Tyler, who has lived with diabetes since childhood, is hoping to raise $10,000 for stem cell therapy for the treatment of the disease. A donation bucket and a display of information is at 1032 Fair Street, West Bay, in Prescott, weekends only, for anyone who wishes to make a donation.

The Review previously reported on a Islet Cell transplant clinical trial the week of March 12 in San Francisco that Eliza had been raising money for and the following is an update from her about that experience:

"My PRA blood test (protein reactive antibody) came back at 63 percent, which knocked me from participating in the trial because it means that as a transplant recipient, I would be more difficult to match, wait longer for a match, and most likely be at a higher risk of rejection.  It was explained to me that the FDA had a cut-off of 50 percent due to this being a trial. The FDA/government wants the best of the best to make sure their trials get passed for the public."

Eliza's comments about the new treatment plan: "I have much information on the stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine. It is NOT in any way related to embryonic stem cell treatment. There are other ways to obtain stem cells and adipose cells are the newest form and showing very promising results. Check out the website for the International Stem Cell Institute. This is such HOPE for so many. My endocrinologist in Phoenix is behind me 100 percent on this one. She appeared to be more in favor of this than the islet transplant, due to the fact, and I agree, the cells come from my body, no anti-rejection drugs, chance of rejection, minimal as they are MY cells to start with. Lowering my risk of kidney issues, which the rejection drugs would have done in no time. My endocrinologist also was thrilled to see me just a couple of weeks ago with my "fight back" (attitude) and is willing to help me monitor for changes upon my return from the treatment."

I have high hopes for stem cell treatments. Is there an address that out-of-towners can mail money to?

Good luck!

We got your back Eliza! I hope we can raise tons of money to help you girl... So many of us are hanging on this treatment for hopes of it being availble to everyone. I of course am speaking of my AJ, October marks his 10 yr anniversary of Type I Diabetes. It's a hard life for a 13yr old! I am praying for a miracle here, I hope we can raise the money to support this ASAP! I know how hard life is for you these days! HUGS2U
