Cord Blood Stem Cells Stored at No Cost to Families with an Identified Medical Need Provide Therapeutic Options
Date:2/14/2013

TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to the Newborn Possibilities Program® by Cord Blood Registry® (CBR®), families facing serious medical conditions with few options may have access to family cord blood stem cell banking services at no cost. This program enables access to genetically related newborn stem cells for future treatment. A group of families who participated in the Tucson Medical Center pilot of the Newborn Possibilities Program have participated in clinical trials using their own stem cells. One Tucson mom, Jessica Schaefer , had a difficult pregnancy with complications that qualified her for this program when she delivered her son, Logan. Logan's cord blood stem cells were processed and stored in CBR's state-of-the-art stem cell processing and storage facility at no cost and provided a therapeutic option for him.

"I am blown away that this program was available to me when I delivered Logan," says Schaefer. "I am so grateful to CBR for the chance to have my son participate in the Medical College of Georgia's clinical trial for cerebral palsy. We feel blessed to have the unique opportunity to possibly help Logan lead a happier life, while also helping to advance the science of stem cell therapies."

The Newborn Possibilities Program is a corporate initiative from Cord Blood Registry designed to ensure that families with an identified medical need and babies born after high-risk deliveries have a free option to save cord blood stem cells in the event they may be used in future treatment and potentially provide access to clinical trials. Nearly 3,000 physicians have collected units for the Newborn Possibilities Program and CBR has stored nearly 5,000 units under the program since its
