After the treatment of D. at our clinic, his parents wrote a letter to our partner in the US, Dr Jeff Bradstreet, as cited below:

Hi Dr. Bradstreet!

This week (8 weeks post Kiev) has been the best so far! Each day this week has brought more improvements. We've decided that we definitely do want to take D. for a second treatment at EmCell. I believe you said you are taking your son Aaron back on Sept 3rd and 4th. That would actually be a very good time for us and we would love to come to EmCell while you are there.

How do we officially sign up for our second visit? Do we schedule it through you or do we contact EmCell directly?


Thank you so much for believing in D.'s potential! We feel so blessed that you included D. in this amazing medical journey!

D. and J.
