Child with Cerebral Palsy Sees and Speaks Following Stem Cell Therapy

Adam Susser was asphyxiated at birth and as a result was cortically blind (the cortex or cerebral cortex of the brain is affected, causing blindness) with quadriplegic cerebral palsy.

Gary and Judy Susser were married for seven years before Judy became pregnant with twins. Both boys, Brandon and Adam, spent two weeks in neonatal intensive care. They took them home and thought everything was fine. It wasn’t. Adam was starved of oxygen and suffered severe brain damage, While basking in the joy new babies bring, Gary and Judy Susser had to come to terms with having a child with special needs.

Recently the Sinclair Broadcast Group produced and aired a 5 minute video news segment concerning the promise and utility of umbilical cord stem cell therapy. The video news segment visually documents the remarkable response of Adam Susser to umbilical cord stem cell therapy. Adam was blind and could not speak prior to receiving human umbilical cord stem cells. He now can both see and speak.
