In the past I had no idea about stem cell collection and why it could be so important for my daughters. After doing some research into umbilical cord stem cells, I was amazed to discover that they can be used to treat over 85 diseases.
Collecting the stem cells in our baby's cord blood was an easy decision to go ahead with. Should our baby, Roma, develop any of these diseases in the future, we will have her perfectly matched stem cells to hopefully treat her instead of finding a matching donor.
London based Ainara Moreno unfortunately didn't have the opportunity to store her son Asier’s umbilical cord blood at birth, but milk tooth storage offered a perfect second chance to help protect Asier's future health.
