Cord Blood Banking

I have been hearing about this cord blood banking thingy before and I just didn't mind it since I wasn't that interested during that time I am not yet planning to have a child. When I was pregnant until I gave birth to my baby I still ignored the fact that it can save my life, her dad's life or any of our relatives in the future.

I keep reading the benefits of having it preserved at a cord blood bank and it awakens me that we really need to treasure our next baby's cord blood. I am kind of thinking twice though because most of the banks that do this are pretty expensive. But now that I have known this very sole company called Cryo-Cell everyting seems to be acceptable.

I value my family so much that I want to do anything and everything just to make them happy, safe and most of all provide the only cure I can possibly give when they get very ill, God forbid. Now, I am so determined that if ever we will decide to have a second baby, its cord blood will go directly into preservation for our future's sake.

Read the testimonial below!
My children are the most precious gifts that I will ever have and I want to do everything I can to make sure they are well. While I was pregnant with my first child, I would see articles and ads about cord blood and it bothered me that it was so expensive but what if I one day needed this blood. The reality of having only one chance or it really went in the garbage kept me wondering if I would regret not investing. What if he had cancer or his dad or I were sick, would that blood have been the cure? Through research, I came across Cryo-Cell International, Inc., a company with the most reasonable rates and the assurance of two holding facilities.

When I was pregnant with my second child, we wondered if one bank was enough? Finances were tighter and should we spend the money? Then we realized that his brothers blood might not match for the new baby. The next day, stories were breaking about how Cord blood had saved or changed the lives of children, one cancer, one cerebral palsy. Then we discovered that a friend was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He didn't bank his daughters blood and wished he had. Three years prior, I lost a friend to renal cancer when she was 29. We felt like it was our answer.

We are just beginning to see miracles that this blood can bring. We have two "life insurance policies", that is how we look at it. If anyone in the family gets ill, there is a chance that the blood could save our lives. If we don't use it, then it is there for our son's children."
