She had learned about her options for saving cord blood, but could not fit private storage in her budget at the time.

"Nathan was my first child and I hadn't really considered that something might be wrong with his development. Once he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and we were informed of the study in Georgia, it became immensely clear just how fortunate we are to have his stem cells stored. We are very grateful."

Following the cord blood collection, CBR program managers contact the families on a regular basis to track the children's medical and developmental status.
