Zac survived a tough accident for a little guy. A large security gate fell on him as a toddler and he suffocated beneath it. Doctors worked wonders bringing him back to life but he was left with a severe Traumatic Brain Injury. Since then he has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
He has now traveled to China twice to receive adult stem cell transplants. In this interview his mother, Lorena, discusses his injury, condition and the improvements they've seen through the treatments.
For patients like Zac, basic motor functions and eating disorders present real-life dangers and significant challenges to his care. Adult stem cell transplants cannot cure TBI. A damaged brain will not reform itself through the treatments. But a patient's quality of life can see real improvements.
