At the age of three, Ryan Benton was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Twenty years later, Ryan became the first person in the world with his otherwise terminal disease to be successfully treated with adult stem cell therapy, paving the way for others.

With your help, we can continue helping others in their fight against incurable diseases by advancing support for adult stem cell therapy.
