Spinal Cord Injuries
Jacki Rabon, 18, from Waverly, IL was injured in a car accident in 2003 and her doctors told her that she would never walk again. Rabon’s family heard about Dr. Carlos Lima’s success in Portugal after their pastor saw a PBS special on the olfactory mucosa transplant.
The Rabons turned to the Waverly community, which helped them raise the necessary the maximum benefit out of her surgery. “I’m still really against abortion, so I’m not for embryonic stem cell therapy. But anything else that doesn’t involve killing a baby is great,” Rabon said. “I think they should do [olfactory transplantation] in the States because it’s just from my own body."
