Saving Lives

What is Cord Blood?

Cord blood is the residual blood that remains in the umbilical cord after the baby is delivered.

This cord blood and the accompanying cord tissue are both filled with stem cells.

Stem Cells

These stem cells are natural occurring cells

that directly affect the development of a baby’s organs, tissue, blood, and the immune system while it is developing in the womb.

Stem Cells are part of each person’s natural design.  Each person is created with these cells that possess these developmental characteristics.  Additionally, these same cells possess curative properties that can positively affect health and wellness in other ways.

Stem cells retrieved from the umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue can be stored and then accessed at a later time to help restore a healthy immune system caused by certain disease.

Stem cells from cord blood and umbilical cord tissue have been treating and improving lives for over three decades.  There are over 80 diseases or conditions that are now being successfully treated – lives are being saved.
