The Story

Florence, SC

Cynthia Steadman (51) has always been a hardworking, intelligent woman. She worked years as a truck driver and enjoys card games and word searches. Given her diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), these kinds of activities help keep her brain active.

Cynthia started to realize something wasn’t right when she started to feel like she was losing control. She noticed sudden movements in her arms and that she was tripping because her feet weren’t picking up correctly. This was unlike her, so she immediately sought medical attention. After meeting with several doctors and still being unsure of the symptoms, Cynthia found a doctor who recognized the condition immediately. "His wife had MS, so the signs were more evident,” said Cynthia.

Cynthia’s diagnosis of multiple sclerosis has affected her mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially. “My quality of life is virtually gone,” said Cynthia. With limited mobility, it’s hard for Cynthia to enjoy activities she used to participate in, including household chores and day trips. Thankfully, her brother Bob stepped up to serve as her caretaker. Bob has made Cynthia’s life a lot easier by transporting her to and from doctor’s appointments and providing her with a good home.

The Steadmans hope to raise $20,000 through RedBasket.org to assist with stem cell therapy, medical bills, and travel to and from Cynthia’s treatments. Raising these funds would allow Cynthia to regain her ability to think more clearly, become more independent, and potentially be able to walk again. “Stem cell therapy seems not only to be a last resort, but the best chance for my body to recover to a more normal state,” said Cynthia. By making a tax-deductible donation, you can help Cynthia on her way to living a life she loves.
