Leukemia boy saved with baby sister’s cord blood




An  eight-year-old boy who received umbilical cord blood from his 22-month-old sister to treat his leukemia a month ago has become healthy again, the Shanghai Cord Blood Center said today. He was diagnosed with acute leukemia and with no possible cure in sight so  his parents conceived and gave birth to a baby girl and banked her umbilical cord blood. When his condition became progressively worse he received a stem cell transplant and is expected to make a full recovery. You can continue to read here.

Banking your baby’s umbilical cord blood can provide insurance in case he/she ever needs it.  Here are some diseases which can be treated with umbilical stem cells.  There are many cord blood banks most of which charge an annual fee in addition to the initial fee.  When you do research on the different banks available, choose the one that has no annual fee as it will save you  thousands of dollars over the next 20 years. Make sure the bank is accredited and certified but the AABB and that the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
