A man from Liberty who got a controversial stem cell transplant in China four months ago is starting to walk for the first time in a decade. David Landewee has braces on his withered legs and uses a walker to support himself, but he’s able to walk about 25 feet before he runs out of energy. He couldn’t walk at all before the operation, using cells from aborted fetuses in China. Landewee was paralyzed below his chest before then. He says he has sensation in his stomach and can feel pressure on the soles of his feet and on his knees when he stands. He says he’s regained the use of hip muscles that let him walk.
