...and were going to CHINA!!! Cash will be admitted to Chengyang People's Hospital in Qingdao, China on June 8th, 2011. He will receive AT LEAST 6 rounds of stem cells (or more if we can afford it) through IV and lumbar puncture. This will be about 27 hours of just air time, one way, and some hours of layovers in between. It is going to be a very tough flight, but it will be worth it! Also, the days over there are pretty much opposite of here. So not only will we be changing time zones, our then 15 month old will be also!
Now, this just means its crunch time. We've got just 11 weeks until payment is due in full. We still need to raise a good amount of money but were pretty confident that all of us, along with you guys, can do it! The dates have to be set in advance because there are limited Stem cell wards over in China and we have to make sure we get in as soon as possible instead of waiting until we have raised all the funds, and then having to wait months to get a date. We need all the help we can get now. Just please tell anyone who will listen, spread the word everywhere you can to get donations in. We need them more then ever!! Thank you so much to everyone who has already helped us out in getting vision for our little man. Please contact me with any fundraising ideas you have.
Thanks so much!

- Cash Michael Williams
- Cash was born on 2-22-10. He is a beautiful baby boy with 2 sisters that love him very much! When Cash was 2 months old, we noticed that he wasn't tracking with his eyes. We took him to the doctor &, after an MRI, found out that he has Septo-Optic Dysplasia & is blind. The doctors told us that there's nothing we can do. We refused to believe that we were helpless. We researched immediately & found out about Stem Cell Transplants being done in China that can help regrow the nerves. Many desperate parents & children are going over there & coming back with amazing improvements... miracles! The treatment costs are incredibly expensive and insurance doesn't contribute. With the help of many generous people, we were able to take Cash to China in June 2011. He was completely blind before we went. Now not only does he see light, but he can locate the source that it is coming from. He sees colors as well and seems to really notice the color red. We are currently fundraising for trip number 2. We have PayPal set up that goes directly into Cash's fund. Please help us spread the word and give the gift of sight to our precious little man!
