Even as the research and its application remains a hot button topic in many circles, a paralyzed individual treated with stem cells has successfully regained movement in his upper body.
His name is Kristopher Boesen. He lost control of his vehicle, spiraling out of control on a slippery surface. The car slammed into a lamp post and tree. Boesen woke up in the hospital only to discover he was paralyzed. His parents had already been warned their son may never again be able to move from the neck down.
