There is a lot of information and miss-information out there regarding stem cells and their use. We have talked to many families who have children with Spina Bifida who have received stem cells and have done some of our own research. We, as a family, have decided we would like to pursue stem cell treatment for Evie at Nova (they use non-embryonic stem cells). Below are some sources we have personally used in making our decision. If you have additional resources which we have not listed please feel free to get in touch with us so that we can check them out and update Evie’s page accordingly.
