A car accident less year ago left Kayla Spano wheelchair bound. The once active De Soto Parish teen never gave up the dream of walking at her high school graduation, but she just wasn't sure how it was going to become a reality. It was then she turned to umbilical cord stem cell treatment. "They monitored the whole time you were there just to see how everything was going, so I wasn't expecting anything to go majority wrong,” explained Kayla Spano. Nothing went wrong during Kayla's four injections and one interverneouns treatment in China. The day started with acupuncture and physical therapy and ended with a 15 minute stem cell treatment session and then another test staying flat on her back for 6 hours. "They would stick a need in my lower back and put electric wires and send electric pulses through my body and I could feel tingling in my legs already, but when they did the pulses I could feel the tingling jump with the pulses and they said any kind of feeling at all was good." Kayla started feeling a difference after the first two injections and as the days went on, more progress. "Normally mama would have to hold me really go because I would be really wobbly, by the last week with her barely holding onto me and later on that week she didn't have to hold on to me at all." Now that she is back in Louisiana the fight to walk does not stop. Kayla will returning to Willis-Knighton North where she initially stayed after her accident but this time she will be going for physical therapy. "I'm really hoping they work with my abdomen on building it up more since I've gotten a little bit back I think it would be great to see how much I can push that."
