To hell and back - David Aldrich

A tragic accident left then 44-year-old, David Aldrich, blind and a quadriplegic. But David never gave up and through adult stem cell treatment, he regained his vision and some mobility.

If you are interested in learning more about David and watching  Supercells, a documentary produced by National Geographic about David and four other seriously ill people, visit this link: SuperCell

An update on David:

The one thing that has always been important to David is that he live in his home rather than in an institution.  However, the years of maintaining a live-in aide 24/7 (which he must have) and all of his other expenses has depleted his funds.  Without financial help, David is going to have to give up house and move into an institution - something he does not want to do.

Ben Wolford from the Sun-Sentinel wrote this article about David and his struggle to keep him home.
