Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They create our organs, tissues, blood and immune system. Saving the stem cells from your newborn’s umbilical cord provides your family with access to these potent cells which can save and change lives, whether during childhood or later in life.
But you only have one chance to collect your child’s cord blood and that is at birth.
You need to register with CordBank before your baby is born to ensure that these precious stem cells are available for future medical use.
