Holly Connor: Giving a little girl sight

My husband and I have a 4 year old daughter, Holly, who is blind. We recently found a stem cell treatment in China that can restore her sight, and are now trying to raise $100,000 in order to make this happen. Creating awareness is my goal, as we are trying to get 1000 people to donate $100. Please take a look at my blog for more information "hollytochina.blogspot.com". There is a huge amount of information to post, so I will be updated the blog everyday.

Thanks so much for your time,

Katie Connor

Holly, A story just ran this morning about a baby with the same condition--is there any chance or usefulness in teaming up with this other family? Best of luck, kiddo!

It is legit, and they aren't raising money to go across the ocean because of a rumor. They researched it. Hope you did too.

have you read the book Crashing Through?

They have done their research, please do yours before making comments. Or please do not comment at all. Comments like this is what makes it hard for people to raise awareness, intimidates them to even try to do these things.

John, I would suggest you do your research before you begin calling this a scam. Stem-cell treatment is possible for this specific form of blindness(Optic Nerve Hypoplasia). Since the US in not doing Stem-cell treatment, Asia would be the only option

Hi John, I am sorry to hear your negativity, but this is an actual procedure and is working. I have tons of information on Holly's blog and can provide you with medical documentation supporting this procedure. You comment saddens me. -Katie

This is not a scam. I am Holly's preschool teacher who has the daily honor and delight to work with Holly to support her skill acquisition. Holly's parents have done EXTENSIVE research regarding this procedure, have their eyes wide open and are legit

If this is not a simple scam, then I am very sorry to hear about your situation. But I must point out that there is NO stem-cell treatment that can restore sight. If you are legit, then whoever is making this claim to you is lying.
