Whenever given the opportunity to speak with an expecting mom, I urge them to take advantage of the opportunity to bank their newborn’s cord blood. Science has come so far and this once in a life-time opportunity to bank your child’s cord blood could save his/her life or the life of a sibling. You never know whether you will need to use the stem cells, but if you need them it is a relief to have them stored somewhere safe and reliable.
What is Cord Blood Banking?
What illnesses have been treated and some cured by using cord blood stem cells?
Stem cells have been used to treat many diseases such as cancers, auto immune disorders, blood disorders, and metabolic disorders such as: Sickle Cell Disease, Leukemia, Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Neuroblastoma, Osteopetrosis, Reticular Dysgenesis, Thalassemia, Type 1 Diabetes, Burkitt’s Lymphoma, Medulloblastoma, and many many more.
With “over 30,000 patients worldwide. It’s been shown that using a higher number of stem cells in a transplant leads to better engraftment and survival.” Of course, you hope as a parent that your child will not be diagnosed with a disease, but cord blood banking gives you an opportunity to be fully prepared if they are. Stem cells have also been useful for those who may have suffered severe injuries in car accidents and even some heart injuries.
