Roy Against MS

My name is Leroy Konjanan, and I need your help. A year ago, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form known as Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS). The only effective treatment currently available is a type of stem-cell therapy given in Mexico. For the journey to Mexico, my treatment and my rehabilitation, I need funds. I’m not the kind of person to ask for charity, but I have no choice. I have a responsibility to myself and all those who are close to me to do my utmost to recover, so I’m seizing what is currently my only opportunity with both hands. For this reason, I would like to ask for your help in stopping this debilitating disease.

What is MS?


Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that works on the central nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis is therefore not a muscle disease as is thought by many people. To understand the effects of Multiple Sclerosis on the body, it is useful to first understand the function of the nervous system, how it works in general and where the nervous system is located in the body. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord.

HSCT Treatment: Video

HSCT

Since 2016 more than 1.600 people around the world have undergone an (autologous) hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Although randomized controlled investigation, that determines accurate effectiveness, has not been finished, analysis of the reported results so far shows an indication what people can accomplish. First of all HSCT has shown generally a positive result in suppressing inflammations and growth of new plaques as shown with MRI with 80% of the patients. Even to a majority of the patients the neurologic limitations stabilized or improved. Although HSCs can transform in every offspring of a cell, including neural or myeline producing cells, we don’t know whether HSCs can support to recover neural structures that have been damaged by MS.

Why Mexico?

Why Mexico? HSCT treatment is being done in The Netherlands regularly, but not with MS patients. Dutch neurologists have a wait-and-see attitude and the watch the foreign results closely. Minister Schippers wants to introduce this treatment for MS patients in 2024 at the earliest. Due to the aggressive vorm of MS, Leroy wants to undergo the HSCT treatment as soon as possible. This will cause that this MS can damage as little as possible.
