Every expectant parent deserves to know the power of the stem cells contained in their baby's umbilical cord.
Your baby's stem cells are saved exclusively for your family's use, for a fee
The stem cells could be used by your family to help treat several conditions and may provide you with exclusive access to certain FDA-regulated clinical trials
Your child's stem cells are immediately available should they be needed for treatment
One-time collection & processing fee of approximately $1,700 plus annual storage fees of approximately $130. Family banks have payment plans and some have gift registry programs.
You may qualify for free banking through programs like CBR's Newborn Possibilities if your family may benefit from newborn stem cells now or in the near future
Stem cells are immediately available for use
Processing and storage for up to 5 years are free of charge; after 5 years, the storage fee is approximately $130 per year
The sample could be stored for use by a patient in need, used for research, or, if the sample is insufficient, discarded
By donating the cord blood sample, the cells are not kept for the exclusive use of your family; they may be given to the first match with a medical need
No cost to donate
Donation increases the national supply of donor cord blood stem cells available to patients who need a transplant
