August Birth Rates Prompt Stem Cell Awareness

I was just browsing online earlier and found this website called Cryo-Cell where they provide families a wonderful opportunity to cryogenically preserve their newborn's umbilical cord blood stem cells in a safe and secure environment. Plus they are committed to serving the needs of parents, with highly trained child birth educators available for consultation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Cryo-Cell has successfully stored more than 155,000 cord blood samples.
I never thought of an umbilical cord blood can play an important role in our families especially when it comes to our health because cord blood contains vital stems cells that can be harvested and preserved. These stem cells can be used to treat 70 diseases, including leukemia, anemia, lymphoma, diabetes and cerebral palsy. We need to be informed not just parents about the emerging new discoveries happening in stem cell research today.
