To date there have been over 60,000 cord blood transplants worldwide (source: Cord Blood Association).
Cord blood stem cells are currently used to treat over 80 different life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell anemia. Cord blood stem cells are also proving critical to new areas of regenerative medicine to potentially treat spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, autism, type 1 diabetes and much more.

In the majority of births (easily over 98% in some countries), cord blood is thrown away as medical waste. Why? Why throw it away if it can help someone? The answer is lack of awareness and cord blood education.
