Please Participate In This Pioneering Research That Has Brought Hope To Our Daughter’s Otherwise Hopeless Case

…and Has The Potential To Help So Many Other Children With Equally Challenging Conditions

Gabrielle’s story is one of bravery and hope. With a hero’s spirit for 14 years, against so many odds, she has defied many life threatening conditions. Having been born at only 26 weeks and weighing 1 lb 8 oz, she has endured many medical emergencies that have resulted in her current condition—Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. With seemingly endless physical challenges— respiratory, immune, digestive, neuro-muscular and many others, she remains undaunted with an ever-present, strong will-to-grow and exuberant ‘spirit-of-life.’


The daily challenges Gabrielle endures are many and can create a most demanding day-to-day routine. She is house bound due to an extremely compromised immune system—experiencing potentially life threatening reactions to even the smallest exposure to common germs, chemicals and almost every food. The constant oral suctioning to safe guard her from choking, formula bottle feeding (the only nutrition she can safely tolerate), and monitoring every imaginable potential problem consumes much of our everyday life.


I would describe my daughter’s condition as very limited on every level—motor skills, social/emotional growth, communication development. All seemed to have plateaued at a very disheartening level. I was beginning to lose confidence there could ever be a different outcome for Gabrielle.


Even though I had been told by many doctors, therapists and educators to ‘hope for the best,’ their message conveyed a grim future. As her parents, nevertheless, we held to the hope that our beloved daughter’s frail body could someday be vital and that a greater quality of life could be achieved. Her unrelenting fight for life was so enduringly strong.

How A Fortuitous Meeting With Dr. Cheryl Malakoff Brought New Hope To Our Family!

Then, in November 2018, I met Dr. Cheryl Malakoff for the first time at a professional meeting where she introduced us to a new form of treatment. Several months later she began working with Gabrielle whose condition started to transform in many extraordinary ways. This revolutionary therapy has expanded traditional boundaries of healing by activating inherent, but dormant abilities, to re-pattern and transform Gabrielle’s under-developed levels of functioning into a body and mind that is more active and responsive.


Since beginning these treatments, Gabrielle has experienced previously undreamed of developmental improvements. For the first time in her life she is able to expressively communicate using a word board, the first step in preparing for speech synthesis communication using text-to-speech technology. She is more socially active and emotionally expressive, reaching out to family and friends. She has made strides in greater voluntarily control of her muscle movements, with increasing strength.


And, most amazingly, Gabrielle has qualified for an ‘adaptive tricycle,’ the first step to her gaining greater independent mobility (see photo below)!  She is now delighting in learning phonics, reading and arithmetic. As parents, the greatest gift is to see the visible ‘spark’ that is now more ever-present, hearing heartfelt laughter, and witnessing her joy in every milestone achieved.



And, this has all been accomplished in less than 11 months with this pioneering treatment approach, transforming and re-awakening Gabrielle’s body and mind. We can never thank Dr. Malakoff enough for how these treatments have changed our daughter’s life.


As a mother who has been given new hope for my daughter’s daunting condition, I ask you to read Dr. Malakoff’s Personal Message below about the next phase of her pioneering research involving children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I cannot tell you how grateful we are to Dr. Malakoff who has so generously donated her healing services to our family, and whose research has the potential to help so many other children.


We would like to thank you in advance for your hero’s spirit in championing this new treatment, not just for our daughter, but as a contribution to Dr. Malakoff’s evidence-based research study that we believe will be a tremendous gift for countless others, bringing new hope to the hopeless.


Please SUPPORT Dr. Malakoff’s continuing research into a new treatment modality that has already helped Gabrielle, and has the potential to benefit so many other children with hopeless conditions!


With the greatest gratitude,

Kaisa, Marcus and Gabrielle







After 21 months of working with Gabrielle, Kaisa reported a number of new and important improvements:

  • Ability to be outside longer without distress due to substantial increase in lung function.
  • Improvement in social and emotional interactions with others.
  • Stronger lower body movement.
  • More alert and present with greater engagement in activities.
  • Better communication and interest in participating with others.
  • Ability to increase caloric intake without adverse reactions.
  • Expressing happiness and joy more frequently.



Gabrielle has been the most complex and challenging case I have ever had the privilege to work with. After 11 months of treatments, Gabrielle’s improvement has been very encouraging to me professionally, and more importantly, to her mom and dad.


Even so, there is still much more to be done. It is now time to expand the scope of this work using a more rigorous evidence-based approach with a larger number of children. Keep reading to learn more about this extensive study and groundbreaking research to help those with hopeless conditions.

New Hope For Incurable Diseases: An Innovative Research Treatment May Have The Answer For Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Please Participate In This Important Study

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disease of children worldwide, affecting approximately 1 in every 3,500 births. It is a progressive genetic disease in which the degeneration of muscles leads to the inability to stand or walk, and ultimately to losing the ability to breathe. This genetic time bomb remains incurable.


Current research states that transgenerational inherited traumas from parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and beyond can be encoded into the psycho–biology of chronic, degenerative, life threatening conditions. These inherited trauma patterns are like ‘molecules of emotions’ that influence ‘switching’ genes on and off—converting imperceptible memories into apparent effects in the body.


Today’s clinical challenge is to transform traumatic ‘memory molecules’ into regenerative ‘messenger molecules’ through new treatment options that reverse degenerative genetic patterns.


Everyone’s personal timeline and ancestral genealogy is marked with cumulative traumatic events such as accidents, natural disasters, war, illnesses and so much more. Ever since the 1950’s, it has been well documented that the etiology of 90% of all diseases are the results of these negative stress factors. This is among the most important areas of research today—to determine how traumatic inherited memories are transformed into bio-chemistry.


The purpose of this pilot research project, The Effect of Transgenerational Traumas in the Psychobiology of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is to contribute to the ever growing critical need for innovative treatment protocols for genetic diseases.


The art of medicine, using the tools of science, urgently needs to study disease patterns at the deeper and more comprehensive level of causation. Every quantum leap of expanded scientific research exposes new layers of Nature’s secrets—revealing the laws of healing. The result is powerful new breakthroughs in treatments—savings lives and restoring hope to once hopeless conditions.

Pioneering Research Advances The Frontier of Treatments for Hopeless Conditions. Presented by Dr. Cheryl Malakoff.


This is a new era of research, challenging the boundaries of how genes can activate healing—demonstrating that we are not passive victims of our genetic inheritances, but rather interactive participants.


Even though science has mapped the human genome, the current understanding of how our ancestral inherited traumatic memories affects our biochemistry still remains uncharted. Each innovate contribution reveals Nature’s previously hidden laws of healing.
