Kris was offered the opportunity to go through a potentially life-changing procedure involving stem cells. The experimental procedure did not guarantee any restoration to Kris’s paralysis, but to him, the risk was worth taking.

The process began in April where USC Dr. Liu injected 10 million AST-OPC1 cells directly into Kris’ cervical spinal cord.
