Life-changing procedure helps man with MS fulfill dream: VIDEO
























Multiple Sclerosis had a Santa Rosa Beach man living in intense pain, and slowly losing his ability to walk. He went to great lengths for a groundbreaking treatment, and told Channel 3 News why it was worth the risk.

Everybody has a dream, and Matthew Price is all about family. A couple of years ago, his MS started getting worse and affecting how he walked. He feared that his dream of walking all four daughters down the aisle at their weddings would be stolen by the disease.

Price didn't like his daughters to see how multiple Sclerosis was stealing his strength and quality of life, but they knew.

Daughter Mackenzie said "Before the procedure, he was nervous on what the future would hold and also there was a lot of uncertainty."

The emotion breaks loose when Price speaks about Mackenzie's upcoming wedding, and his hope to escort her down the aisle. He said, "It's everything to me....so my number one goal has always been to walk every one of them down the aisle....every one."

When he heard about a new procedure called HSCT, an hour's research convinced him to try.

It's a stem cell transplant using the patient's own stem cells to reset their immune systems. He says the success rate is 86-91%.

He adds, "And unfortunately, it's not approved in the U.S., don't know if it will be approved in the U.S. until 2022. I didn't have that time, and there's many...hundreds of thousands in the U.S. that can't wait that long."

He traveled with his wife Rebecca to a clinic in Mexico for 28 days. The process is extremely painful and involves two rounds of chemotherapy. But now, Matthew Price is walking without a cane, three weeks after coming home. He says he sees and feels progress every day.

Mackenzie says it's been a life-changer for all of them, "After the procedure was done, we all just have a better outlook on what the future holds for my dad and for us as a family."

Not only will Matthew walk his daughter down the aisle, he hopes his story will open the door for other MS patients to pursue a treatment that might help. He said, "My MS is goning to be stopped. My MS is going to be halted forever. And if I continue on the path I am and based on other patients, then I will continue getting better."

Price believes the stem cell transplant has stopped the progress of his disease. He will have an MRI in a few months to confirm his condition.Multiple Sclerosis had a Santa Rosa Beach man living in intense pain, and slowly losing his ability to walk.
