Blue Horizon Stem Cell Treatment Helps Paralyzed Patient Regain Periods of Mobility

NEW YORK, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesenia Torres was an outgoing, popular teenager, with the body of an athlete. the face of a model, and long, beautiful hair. She was turning heads wherever she went.

And then a car accident changed her life forever. Like typical 21 year olds, Yesenia and her two girlfriends were taking a road trip to Florida. An accident caused a suitcase to hit her in the neck, dislocating a vertebrae, and paralyzing her from the chest down.

"It was a total 360 for me, the changes my body experienced really hurt me. I went from living one life to another. It has been a difficult road, but I am a fighter. I am the type of person that won't take no for an answer," said Ms. Torres."Since day one after the accident, I started researching stem cell treatments. I have learned a lot about the benefits of these therapies," she added.

Thanks to stem-cell guru and orthopedic trauma surgeon Dr. Brian Mehling, the Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation, and Yesenia's determination to seek and find innovative stem cell therapies, she has experienced new found energy and mobility she hasn't felt in years.

"It was like a dream come true, I was so happy, I couldn't believe it. Everything went so well.  Just six hours after the treatment, my body was able to do things that were not possible after the accident. Movements started to come back and now I have an increased mobility. I regained sensation in my arms and other parts of my body," Ms. Torres said. "Nothing will hold me back. If I am faced with limitations, I will overcome them."

Today, 18 years after her accident, Yesenia works in the entertainment business, managing music groups and models. She is an avid supporter of stem cell treatments and the Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation.
