The overall mean age was 6.08+-2.89 years and mean bone mineral density z-score was -2.16+-0.62.As many as 28(32.6%) children were in level 5 of GMFC, followed by 18(20.9%) in level 3 (Table-1).
Gross Motor Function Classification(GMFC) System###Level 1###11 (12.8)
There was also significant difference between different levels of GMFC (p0.05).
A vital correlate of low BMD in children with CP is their GMFC level of motor impairment.
At baseline, fluorescence was comparable, GMFC being 340.65 [+ or -] 60.39 (MOLT3), 277.82 [+ or -] 50.32 (MCF7) and 274.05 [+ or -] 59.13 (A549, Fig.
The baseline NAO fluorescence was comparable amongst the three cell lines, GMFC being 311.16 [+ or -] 2.81, 307.55 [+ or -] 11.39 and 294.72 [+ or -] 14.71; MAL-A (15 [micro]g/ml, 1 h) maximally decreased GMFC in MOLT3 by 67.01% to 102.64 [+ or -] 28.13, p < 0.05; however, in MCF7 and A549, the fluorescence decreased by 29.15% and 44.30% to 217.89 [+ or -] 26.36, p < 0.05 and 164.14 [+ or -] 14.31, p < 0.05 respectively (Fig.
Baseline levels of ROS in MOLT3, MCF7 and A549 were comparable, GMFCs being 44.28 [+ or -] 7.85, 44.28 [+ or -] 14.89 and 37.87 [+ or -] 3.24 respectively (Fig.
James Miller, Jr., president and co-founder of Global Mission for Children states "Child sponsorship is a very intimate and personal way to make a huge difference to eradicate extreme poverty and deadly diseases for .50 per day." Being a child sponsor for other organizations before founding GMFC in May 2012, James states "Child sponsorship is one of the most rewarding and deeply spiritual experiences one will ever have and provides a spiritual bond between the sponsor and child which enables them to witness the good their donations are providing."
Organizations like GMFC use the funds from individual sponsorship to help support an entire community with the goal of constructing new schools and churches.
There is a volunteer board of overseers and GMFC's "Statement of Faith," "Mission Statement" and the founders BIO's are posted on their website so sponsors will be confident their donations are used in an upright manner with Godly stewardship.
