From Blind to Driving A Car- Stem Cells Give Colorado Girl the Gift of Sight

Are you or a loved one interested in receiving stem cell treatment? For free information, please fill out our treatment form or email me don@repairstemcells.org and just put TREATMENT in the subject box and the MEDICAL CONDITION in the message.
Macie Morse, a 16 year old from Colorado, has made dramatic improvement in her eyesight after receiving Adult Stem Cells taken from cord blood to treat her Optic Nerve Hypoplasia. In yet another victory for stem cell research, Macie now has her driving learner's permit after being almost totally blind before the stem cell therapy.

Macie before stem cells:

  • 20/4000 vision in one eye and in the other eye she only had light perception- she could only make out light

  • Could only watch TV with her nose pressed against the glass

Macie after stem cells:

  • 20/80 vision in one eye and the other is 20/400+

  • Driving her family's van and enjoying her new driving permit

Now after the Adult Stem Cell research has helped her, Macie is realizing her dreams:

“I’ve always wondered what it would be like to lay on the couch and watch TV,” she said. “It looked so comfortable.”

“I always wondered what it would be like to see my friends,” she said.

Macie was treated with Adult Stem Cells taken from umbilical cord blood (not Embryonic stem cells) by Beike Biotech in China.   Macie joins our " Optic Nerve Hypoplasia Club" with others who  have made similar improvements from this stem cell research.  Others such as Cody Fend, Cameron Petersen, Lydia Black, Lydia Olmsted and Rylea Barlett, Savannah Watring, Xavier Carballo, and Connor Corkern all have made great strides since receiving cord blood stem cells for their Optic Nerve Hypoplasia and Septo-Optic Dysplasia in China.

For more information about this stem cell treatment, you can contact Beike Biotech's Medical Director  Dr. Kara Zhang directly at dr.zhang@beikebiotech.com
