One Chance in a Lifetime to Invest in the Future
What is Cord Blood?
When a baby is born, a small amount of blood gets left behind in the umbilical cord. Traditionally, this blood and the umbilical cord itself was discarded. Now, we know cord blood is an important source of stem cells.
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) from cord blood can make a variety of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. They have been used for over 30 years to treat disease.
What is Cord Blood Banking?
When you choose to bank cord blood, hematopoietic stem cells from the umbilical cord are collected, processed and cryogenically preserved for long-term storage. This ensures that these cells remain viable when your child needs to use them later on in life.
There are so many reasons for preserving your baby’s cord blood.
Get your baby an all access pass to future stem cell therapies.
Choose to Protect the Health of Your Entire Family
Your baby’s own stem cells are a perfect match for him/herself. This eliminates the need for a donor and the risk of rejection.
Your entire family may benefit from preserving your baby’s stem cells from cord blood.
Cord Blood: Unlimited Therapeutic Potential
Stem cell therapies will likely target many more life-threatening diseases in your baby’s lifetime.
Cord blood stem cells are currently used to treat over 80 life-threatening diseases, including cancers and genetic disorders.
Over 1000 current clinical trials are currently evaluating the use of stem cells in the treatment of many diseases that were previously considered to be incurable.
With rapid advances in stem cell research, the use of cord blood and cord tissue stem cells in cell therapies will continue to rapidly increase during a child’s lifetime.
“We are expecting our third child and our whole family is getting ready for our baby to arrive. We banked cord blood for our first two children with Healthcord and will do the same for this baby. We want to do everything we could for our children, and like to think of it as “insurance” in case our children ever need it.”
