I have stored all five of my children’s cord blood. I love the reassurance of knowing that all five of my children have their stem cells and all five are stored together at the same facility.  My children may never need it but, their stem cells are there if they do.  It’s like having life insurance policy, we most likely will never need it, but it’s reassuring that it’s there in case we do.

The ultimate measure of our success is a healthy patient.
