If you are familiar with the power of stem cells and the family cord blood banking services that CariCord offers, you probably know that cordblood can be used to treat more than 80 diseases, and that it can only be banked at the birth of a child. That means expecting parents must make the decision to collect and store their child’s cells using family cord blood services before the birth of the child, otherwise these stem cells are lost forever.

Since family cord banking came on the scene roughly 30 years ago, researchers have diligently been pursuing ways that cord blood cells can be used in treatments. Today, they have discovered more than 80 diseases that can be treated using family cord blood stem cells. These diseases include leukemia, lymphoma, myelomas, sickle cell anemia, immune deficiency diseases, and more. If there is a history of one of these diseases in your family, cord blood banking could be especially vital to your family. Don’t risk the odds; make the decision to store your child’s stem cells with a family cord blood service while you have the opportunity.

Additionally, scientists are currently pursuing research to determine if family cord blood stem cells are a viable treatment option for many common diseases that take the lives of millions of Americans each year. These diseases include Alzheimer’s Disease (the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.), Parkinson’s Disease (affects more than 1.5 million Americans and 7-10 million worldwide), Cerebral Palsy (affects 1 in every 323 children; more common in girls than in boys; reported in higher rates among African-Americans), Spinal Cord Injury (affects 259,000 Americans, approximately 12,000 new cases annually, Stroke (third leading cause of death in the U.S., with one occurring every 40 seconds), Muscular Dystrophy (affects more than 30,000 adults in the U.S.), and HIV (currently affects more than 1.1 million Americans).

As you can see, the stem cells collected by family cord blood services like CariCord carry valuable healing potential, which is why the decision to save your child’s cord blood will likely become a common and simple decision in the future. Don’t risk the odds.
