Stem cell treatment in Ecuador - a hope for a Cranford family with an autistic child

Emma Love is a gorgeous little 9yo girl who has piercing green eyes and a mop of sandy blonde hair. At 15 months, she was diagnosed with classic autism. She has never spoken a word, cannot dress herself and cannot even perform the most basic forms of personal hygiene.

Her family has not given up hope. The Love family is looking to raise $25,000 for a stem cell treatment at an American clinic in Ecuador. The family will take a trip to the center on November 15th for the four days of treatment.

There are various fundraisers that you can donate to. One of the fundraisers, “Emma’s Road to Ecuador” is featured in the local newspaper ( Click here to read the entire article -  )

I know that most of us are facing some tough financial difficulties. However, any amount will definitely make a big difference!

A parent’s love and determination, faith and prayers with the help of the community can conquer any challenges. Sometimes ordinary people find ways to find different solutions and research to help find cure or an alternative whereas a team of medical experts or government regulations have failed.

As a mother, I feel that my life does not belong to me. My life is my children’s. There is still an invisible umbilical cord that will forever connect my children to my very being.

It’s the same connection that all mothers feel when we see the kids jumping down the stairs that initiate a sensation of being poked with pins and needles; The same reason why mothers don’t truly sleep deeply at night – every silent sound from our children is being amplified directly into my hearts.

So if you can, please pass this along and send in the donations to help the Love family. Let's give the Love family an early Thanksgiving blessing and Christmas presents!

Share LOVE, you’ll get more of it in return!

  1. At this time of the year, we are reminded to be thankful for our good fortune.
    If everyone of the "GottaLoveMom" followers donated just $1.00 to $5.00 to help the "Love" family help their beautiful daughter, we would be so thankful.
    If you can make a financial donation, we thank you for your generosity. If you can't donate money, we thank you for your prayers for Emma Love and her family in their quest for a cure, and a chance for a renewed life for their beautiful daughter.
    With love, GottaLoveGrandma Roz

  2. Thanks Mom. There are quite a few fund-raisers in town. But it would be great some more donations from the readers of GottaLoveMom.

  3. There is no doubt that medical science has achieved a number of mile stones, especially at the time of emergency but at the same time it is also true that its medication has a number of side effects. So at that moment stem cell therapy can be considered as a perfect solution that to without any medication. Thank you.

Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A Purpose

My family is what matters most to me.  I’m 51 and a mother of 4 (ages 14 – 26). I wanted to be healthier, more active and stronger not just for me, but for the people I love.  I wanted to set an example for my family that we each possess the tools to master our wellness and vitality. I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!) Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.   Achieving stable, long-lasting results proved stubbornly elusive.    Then when I hit menopause everything became more difficult.    My body stopped cooperating altogether, and I was constantly grumpy. My waist and hips expanded and I found myself napping in the afternoons.    I started to accept the idea that there would be this new, less vibrant version of me. I just completed my P

SPICE-up a young child's development: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional

Children are the precious gems of a family. When they’re young and innocent, they are like sponges that willingly and quickly absorb any knowledge and emotion. That’s why at an early age, we encourage our children to read, be creative, be happy and feed their curiosity. With all the technology and instant gratification that children get from playing video or computer games, asking a child to read a good book has been a challenge for some parents .     “Your children are not your children.       They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.       They come through you but not from you,       And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.       You may give them your love but not your thoughts,        For they have their own thoughts.        You may house their bodies but not their souls,        For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,        which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” -                     Kahlil Gibr

Immigration and Family: Will my mom ever get to see my daughter walk down the aisle

Last year when my father passed away in the Philippines, I went home and took some time to visit the U.S. Embassy in Manila to ask what the options are for my mother to return to the U.S. The consul reminded me of the 10-year travel ban. That on or after November 8, 2015 — not earlier – or 10 years after my mom, was deported in 2005 for overstaying her visa, I can email the U.S. Embassy and inquire about my mother’s approved petition. I asked if I need to file another petition, and she informed me I didn’t have to. I asked if I could… and she stopped me and said to ask everything on or after November 8, 2015. This is where I am, and where my thoughts are drifting as I celebrate this month my 16th American birthday. I am counting the months, the weeks and the days. My daughter is getting married in January 2016 and I would love to have my entire family, especially my mother, to be here when that momentous occasion happens.

Helping others surpass their goals and expectations

"It's not about the end goal. It's who you become by consistently pushing to the edge of your limits." - Robin Sharma Do you ever wonder why you stumble on new things?  Do you ever wonder why unsuspecting strangers cross your path? Do you ever wonder why your mind takes you to a direction you didn't think exist? I was walking to StarBucks to meet my husband when I noticed a sign...

Still shaky, skidded in snow, but so blessed my guardian angels are looking after me!

"Never again wonder, what to be thankful for..."   - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life It’s yet another snowy day in New Jersey. Beautiful, yes but dangerous! In line with my goal for this month is to get back on schedule. I got up around 4am to get my 15yo ready for his Model United Nations conference. (Thankful that our neighbor offered to drive him to school by 5:30am ) I got my 9yo ready for school and I'm thankful that my other neighbor offered to drive him to school. I then drove my husband to the train station to Manhattan. I decided to stop by the Community Center and decided to run a fast 5K on the treadmill. I was 1 mile short because I was so sweaty and hot. (Note to self: dress lightly next time) While cooling down inside the car, I read Day 14’s chapter of Rick Warren's the “Purpose Driven Life” book. I felt really good because it just reminded me that there is always something to be thankful for no matter how awful yo
