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, Alabama.
