What’s so amazing about cord blood?
Cord blood cells are the most powerful cells, undamaged by the aging process.
They can turn into other types of cells including heart, muscle and nerve cells.
For the past 30 years cord blood has been used to rebuild children’s immune systems after cancer treatment — as an alternative to bone marrow transplants.
Latest emerging medical therapies for a child’s own cord blood include type 1 diabetes and brain injuries — with many new uses rapidly emerging.
Brain injury at birth
Maia Friedlander Auckland parents Daniel and Jillian Friedlander were blessed with beautiful twin girls Maia and Arielle. Life couldn’t have been better. But when Maia failed to meet the usual developmental milestones it was clear she had suffered oxygen deprivation at birth. It left her “disconnected” and developmentally delayed. Because her stem cells were banked at birth, they could be used to repair her brain injury.
Surviving a deadly cancer
At just four years old, Auckland local Frances was diagnosed with a stage four Neuroblastoma (a cancer of the nervous system). Her parents were told to take her home to die. But armed with Frances’ cord blood they fought back and their daughter survived. Today she is well and healthy – all thanks to her cord blood stem cells stored at CordBank.
