Amanda Boxtel is raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with her spinal cord injury and Human Embryonic Stem Cell Therapy. Amanda lives in Basalt, CO with her Golden Retriever, Tucker.

A personal note from Amanda:

I am a 40 year old paraplegic woman who underwent Human Embryonic Stem Cell (HESC) Treatment with Dr. Geeta Shroff in Delhi, India from June 25-August 17, 2007. I am returning to India January 11-February 11, 2008 for my second treatment and then again in May and October, 2008.

During my initial two month visit, I not only witnessed astounding improvements in my own body, but with many patients who have life restored within their bodies and a newfound reason to not give up but live!

I am compelled to share my experiences with the world. Visit my blog at or for more information.

After sixteen years of being in a wheelchair my toes are moving, my bladder and bowels are beginning to function again, I have increased muscle power in my legs, and hope is now a part of my vocabulary!

Amanda has chosen to fundraise with NTAF Catastrophic Injury Fund in part because NTAF provides both tax-deductibility and fiscal accountability to her contributors. Contributors can be sure that funds contributed will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses.
