Stem cells are the building blocks of all the different types of cells that make up the body’s blood, tissues, and organs. They have the remarkable ability to transform into other types of cells and replenish themselves as needed. Due to their transformative potential, stem cells can be used to replace other cells in the body that are abnormal or have been destroyed by disease. Banking stem cells may play a role in a long and healthy future for your family.
*For some diseases and genetic conditions, children will not be able to use their own stem cells and would require a stem cell transplant from a sibling or unrelated donor.
