Insurance. For most people it's something you don't really think twice about. If you have the means, you pony up and get it because the alternative is scary as hell. Medical insurance, life insurance, home owner's or renter's insurance, car insurance, even your money is insured in the bank. But how about your children. Are they insured? There are a few options here. One being signing up for life insurance at birth because they won't qualify for one if they are ever diagnosed with a whole slew of disorders or illnesses. Another kind of insurance for not just your children but also for you and your partner? Banking your child's cord blood and placenta.
Stem cells have life saving and life changing properties for that child, siblings, and parents, and the uses are growing year by year. Now, they're used to treat 80 types of blood-related and genetic diseases including leukemia. But in the future? Who knows! There is hope that one day in the not too distant future stem cells will be able to treat Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and to restore the ability to walk to those with severe spinal cord injuries.
It’s been shown that using a higher number of stem cells in a transplant leads to better engraftment and survival. Did you know that you can preserve significantly more of your baby’s stem cells by adding placenta blood banking to your cord blood collection? This is what LifebankUSA brings to the field. Only LifebankUSA has the proprietary technology to offer placenta blood banking with cord blood banking to expectant parents. They are also the only company in the world to release placenta stem cell units for transplant.
