This month, seven-year-old Tucker Beau Hyatt joined the Pearland Rail Cat Lacrosse Team, a milestone he and his family could only dream of before. Since the age of two, Tucker Beau had lived with intense joint pain in his knees, feet, ankles, hips, fingers, elbows, back and wrists caused by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). This disease made everyday life difficult for Tucker Beau and prevented him from riding his bike and playing sports.

Tucker Beau’s parents, Todd and Linsey Hyatt, were referred to Celltex, a Houston-based biotechnology company that offers a first-of-its-kind proprietary technology that can isolate and expand autologous (one’s own) mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), in quantities never before possible, to be used for therapeutic application. After four years of searching all possible options for their son, the family decided to try Celltex. In the summer of 2014, Tucker Beau received hundreds of millions of his own adult stem cells – a therapy that has helped him become a kid again.
By December of that year, the Hyatt family and Tucker Beau’s doctors began to notice and follow vast improvements in his body, beginning with an improved appetite, food digestion and absorption of nutrients, and, best of all, the ability to run and play like every active kid deserves. Today, Tucker Beau is playing lacrosse and attending practice and scrimmages just like his big brother, Preston.
“As a mother who could never imagine Tucker Beau running and playing with other kids his age, I was overcome with joy and my heart was full,” Tucker Beau’s mom Linsey Hyatt says. “I don’t think [his dad] and I stopped smiling the whole practice!”
Since adult stem cell therapy, Tucker Beau has grown five inches and gained 16 pounds.
