Hello, My name is Gabby, and I am a mother of two AUTISTIC boys: Joshua (4.5 years old) & Nicholas (2.5 years old)...
DeVelbiss1
My earliest memories daydreaming about just being a wife and mother ... I met my soulmate and it was only a matter of time before the rest of my dreams were realized. I was sooooo excited and filled with Joy, Hopes, and dreams for my son to be... Joshua was born on October of 2003... a perfect little boy!!! He flipped over from back to front while he was being weighed for the first time, a strong child indeed...he fed well and slept all night long!!! But this was soon to end... before we left the hospital they took him to the nursery to get a shot (Hep B) so that he would be "safe"... When they brought him back all had changed, and this calm and serene child, would not stop crying. He became horse...and unable to cry like a normal child!!! He did not eat well, stopped sleeping through the night, and day. He was also jaundice...They would tell me over and over that he was OK, that he was a "colicky child"... What ever that means!
DeVelbiss3
As he received more vaccines his condition deteriorated more and more, That strong child became weak, low muscle tone, eye contact started to fade away, and language stopped. It all became more intense after his flu shot at 12months. But the pediatrician kept reassuring me that I was being paranoid, that the vaccines had nothing to do with all his problems...
January 9th 2006, Joshua was diagnosed as SEVERELY AUTISTIC. A week prior to this I was diagnosed with CANCER ( lymphoma type B). Our second child Nicholas was only 5 months old!!! Breastfeeding had to be stopped. In preparation for upcoming Chemo – I had to have a procedure that would insert a Life Port in my chest, to be able to receive the chemo. Later came the radiation... Thank God for family – our support system!


Once Nicholas became 18 months, he received the same diagnosis "AUTISM"... our world was shattered and all our hopes and dreams for our children were tossed away as we were told that there was nothing that could be done, but wait and expect the worse the older they got!!! But, giving up on our boys was not an option for us, I fought and survived CANCER so that we could beat AUTISM too!!!

Unable to work because of my busy schedule as a "spectrum mom" and with limited funds, I started to research in every way possible. Our boys have received alternative treatments, some improvement here and there, but they have been neurologically tested and need STEM CELL & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to repair the brain-injury caused by toxins and fevers associated with them.... All this is not covered by insurance so we don't have the means to pay for all of this much needed treatments!!! Their language has been impaired and have no voice to let me know when they are hungry, sad or in pain... Time is ticking for them... Please help us to help them...


We cannot do this alone... they need you!!!


Love, Gabby. :0)

Hi Gabby,

You might want to check out my new site at http://lend4health.blogspot.com. Maybe you could request a loan and see if that can help you fund your sons' treatment too.

Dear Gabby! I wish I were rich! I would give the money so you could help your boys.

You are a great mom and your boys couldn't be in better hands.

Dammit, autism sucks!

Love,

Zurama

Gabby - How come your not updating you blog? Aren't you going to write in it??

Gabby DeVelbiss said...

I will start writing in the blog once we begin Stem Cell Treatment and or HBOT.. for now there is not much to write about... Gains are not significant...I have done so much therapies, diets, protocols and what not to help my boys but... we have realized that it is beyond that!!! They have a Vaccine induced brain-injury...and they require Stem Cell and HBOT!!! As soon as I am able to pay for it, we will go forward with treatments... I will be posting in my blog the progress...
Thanks... Love, Gabby. :0)

Gabby-
I just read your story...I am the mother of 4 kids, two of whom were diagnosed with autism last year at ages 3 and 2...I empathize with you re. your life. No one understands until they walk the same walk. I pray you get the answers you need for your boys. I am exhausted from the never ending daily therapies and supplements we do - our kids are at different places on the spectrum. Our daughter is 4 now and is verbal and quite social, so we are blessed by that. But she has major defiance issues which make life hard. Our 3 year old son does not speak and we have a long road ahead with him. I will stay tuned to your site. God bless you.

You have two of the most beautiful boys I've ever seen! And your photographer is a genius.

I know that's not the point of your writing, but, I just had to tell you.

Gabby and all those whose children have autism...please check out www.internationalbiocare.com. It's the link to the International Biocare Hospital in Tijuana, MX. They do stem cell therapy there! It's just 3 miles outside San Diego. I took my son there for a variety of reasons one being to see some improvement on his high-functioning Aspergers (and all the fun stuff that goes along with it). Guess what? We saw improvement - not only on the physical stuff that goes along with brain injury from vaccines but also in his behavior. Eye contact, social interaction, organization, lateral thinking...improvement.

It costs, but it's worth EVERY PENNY.
Best to you and your children!

Mamacita, my dear friend:
God is with you, in every step of the way. He is the first one we should come for healing. JesusChrist is our main doctor. You know my boy recovered from autism in a miraculous way; still has gut issues, and yeast, but he is a living testimony on how detox works for our kids.
May the Lord grant you the joy of seeing recovery of your beautiful boys soon. You're so brave and courageous and pave the path for others to follow. You have a wonderful mission in this life. I love you! Lorena

Que Dios te siga bendiciendo con valentia y amor para curar a tus hijos. Jesus es nuestro doctor principal, a el hay que acudir a diario. Tu sabes que mi gordito perdio el diagnostico de autismo en solo un ano de desintoxicacion. Los tratamientos funcionan y espero con ansias el dia en que tus peques preciosos se curen para siempre. Tu eres un ejemplo a seguir, mucho exito mi reina y que Dios te siga guiando. Te quiero mucho.
