Will The Catholic Church sponsor a CP patient’s Medical Treatment?
The Catholic Church has taken notice of the challenging life of a young
29 year old man with cerebral palsy. The Catholic Churches recent
endorsement of adult stem cells is a true blessing for Neil Barron of Phenix
City, AL. Neil has Mixed Cerebral Palsy, he is a quadriplegic destined to live
out his deteriorating life in a wheelchair.
The recent advancements in medical therapies using adult stem cells has shown
significant improvements in the quality of life of several cerebral palsy patients
treated in China. Neil has been accepted for adult stem cell therapies in China
so he has been desperately seeking financial support.
Neil’s constant prayers and reaching out for help was answered by the Catholic
Church. Reverend Thomas Weise splits his time between two Roman Catholic
Churches, St. Patrick’s Church and the Mother Mary Parrish, both of Phenix City,
AL. Reverend Thomas Weise, a theologian with four degrees, is dedicated to
helping his community. After meeting Neil and introducing him to the church
community Reverend Weise is heading the fund raising for Neil’s adult stem cell
therapies in China. Neil’s treatments are scheduled for next month, December 28, 2010.
Our Sincere thanks to Reverend Thomas Weise and the church community of Phenix City,
