Cord Blood Stem Cells can treat over 80 diseases!

As the “self-renewing master cells,” stem cells have the ability to reproduce any type of cell within the body, which makes them the perfect cells to help treat diseases. Currently stem cells can treat over 80 different diseases including certain types of cancers, blood disorders, immune deficiencies, and metabolic diseases.

More and more people are banking their children’s cord blood every year due to its amazing ability to treat some of the most deadly and debilitating diseases. In fact, as of the beginning of 2015, there have been more than 35,000 cord blood transplants worldwide (national cord blood program). If your child is part of the 1 in 217 people who will need a stem cell transplant in their life, collecting your child’s cord blood can help act as an insurance policy for that day.
