Our Client's Stories about their experiences with Cryo-Cell



Blood Brothers for Life: A Family's Story
 

Introduction
When Julie and Jonathan Henderson found out that their two-year old son Nicolas had T-cell lymphoma they were devastated. They had just found out that Julie was pregnant, and what was supposed to be an exciting time preparing for the new baby, turned into months of doctor visits, hospital stays and chemotherapy. After Nicolas' chemotherapy failed to work, the Henderson's doctor tried a relatively new transplant procedure using stem cells taken from the umbilical cord blood of their newborn baby, Nathaniel. 

They worked with Cryo-Cell International, Inc., the world's first private cord blood bank and fastest growing Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cell banking company, to process, test and store Nathaniel's umbilical cord blood. Today, Nicolas is a happy, energetic four-year-old who is in remission. He and his baby brother Nathaniel share a special bond.

We may joke a lot in life, but all kidding aside, when we learned the facts about how stem cells from cord blood and cord tissue can be used to possibly save lives, hell yeah we stored.
And knowing that our baby’s stem cells might be used for our whole family made the decision that much easier. We hope we never have to use them, but it is a definite relief to know it’s there and stored safe at Cryo-Cell.

Why We Chose Cryo-Cell

We did our research and compared our options but, when it came down to it, we would only trust our baby’s stem cells with Cryo-Cell. Cryo-Cell is the first in the world to do this, their reputation is second-to-none and their processing method is superior to the others.

Started storing with Cryo-Cell back in 2003 with my first child. I am now on my fourth baby and have stored with all the others! after watching my cousin at about 4 years old battle leukemia and I mean battle this cancer, I decided as an adult that's storing each of my kids' cord blood was an absolute necessity!! knowing that one's own cord blood will always be a perfect match for that same person if needed is all the assurance I need... I'm sure in 10 plus years researchers will find even more uses for cord blood... the storage fee every year is now $125 and to me that is well worth the piece of mind knowing that if any of my children get sick their cord blood from birth can potentially save them!!! People/friends (who have beautiful cars, homes and go on more vacations than God knows) often tell me the reason why they cannot store the blood is because initially its too expensive and yes I will not lie from what I recall it can be anywhere from $1,500 to 2,000 to store initially and that is only a one time fee... I forget what the initial yearly storage fee is now because we are in the process of storing as my baby is due at the very beginning of October but all of my other kids are about $100 per year... however let me just say that I am a school teacher; my husband is a mechanic... we live in a very very small house and we have never taken our children to Disney World which is our ultimate dream one day. my advice to anybody who's contemplating whether or not they should pay the money to store blood is that one day if you may need that cord blood for your child or even a sibling because cord blood can be used to save the life of a sibling, you will wish that you had not taken that trip to Disney World and stored your baby's cord blood!!! Trust me, I NEVER WANT MY CHILDREN TO ENDURE WHAT MY COUSIN WENT THROUGH :) I strongly urge you to do the research on cord blood or urge a friend who is pregnant!! You will never regret storing.... :) from one very happy Cryo-Cell client x 4!!! :) FINALLY HAVING A BOY DUE 10/2/13 :) :) :) :)

Preston

Preston

In 1999, after 4 miscarriages, we found out that the 5th time was the charm and on Oct. 26, 2000, Preston was born. We weren't familiar with cord blood stem cell technology but we were fortunate to have come across it through a pregnancy bulletin board my wife Lisa was browsing. It wasn't available when my step-children were born. We began doing research and decided Cryo-Cell was the company we would trust with Preston's future. After quite a bit of research, we found that Cryo-Cell fit our needs more than the other options we came across, primarily because they were a family oriented storage facility. Lisa and I both lost loved ones to cancer. The day that we found out about the pregnancy, I also found out that my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It just made sense to invest in a Life Saving Policy should something unforeseen happen with Preston than buying a Life Insurance Policy. Life Insurance doesn't save lives, it simply cushions the financial burden at death. Preston was a miracle for our family and we wanted to give him every opportunity in life. I think we did that in the beginning by choosing to store his umbilical stem cells. I was blessed to actually perform Preston's delivery with our physician standing by my side. Nothing in life will ever compare with the moment that me, Lisa and Preston were connected as one at the time he was being delivered. It's comforting to know that if something unforeseen should ever happen, Cryo-Cell will be there to help us. They made the process so easy. It's been one of the best decisions we've ever made.

Sydney

Sydney

We purchased the stem cord kit for our first born, but missed. She (Morgan) came 3 weeks too early and I was slow ordering the kit and it came the day we all go home. We passed the kit to our best-friends that delivered 7 weeks later. We were better prepared for our second born, Sydney, in 2003. Cryo-Cell staff were very nice, personable to speak with when we were investigating companies. The cost and security of locations were also favorable factors in our decision. I wish I could emphasize how strongly I feel about doing this for all the babies. I am sad that both of my girls didn't get banked. I pray they never need to resource the stem cells, but maybe could share with each other or cousin, if something would come up.

Mostly, we chose Cryo-Cell because my brother and his wife has used your service, and we trust them. I know my brother, who's a surgeon, is meticulous about researching big decisions (we tease him that he would spend a week researching which doorknob to buy!), so I felt that I didn't need to 're-invent the wheel' in this case.

Wyatt

I chose Cryo-Cell because it had a great reputation and with the amount of cancer in my family, I know that investing in the future of science was the right choice. Here is little Wyatt that will hopefully never need his stem cells, but can help other family members or even strangers! Thanks!

Caelyn

Caelyn

Caelyn is our second child, and we did not know about the benefits of banking cord blood with our first daughter. After a good deal of research, we decided to bank Caelyn's cord blood with Cryo-Cell for several reasons. Cryo-Cell was the oldest company, which made us comfortable with their stability and longevity. Cryo-Cell also offered the most reasonable rates. The process to collect and send the blood was also simple and speedy. It was barely an interruption in the regular birth process at all. The courier arrived quickly and picked up the package with minimal disturbance. We sincerely hope that we never need to use our stored blood, but rest much more comfortably knowing that it is there! Thanks Cryo-Cell.

This is my pride and joy, Patrick Andrew. I was adamant on storing his cord blood and my very practical husband had to begrudgingly agree. The company was recommended by my OB. I still asked and got info from the other companies. I chose Cryo-Cell because it offered the most affordable pricing and great service. I'm so glad I took this chance to give my son added security for the future. I wish I was able to do it 10 years ago with his older brother, Aidan-who's just as equally loveable as Baby P. And if we do have more kids, I'm sure we'll bank again with Cryo-Cell.

I initially liked Cryo-Cell because of the price, as compared to other cord blood banks, but as I continued my research, I found your website to be very comprehensive and informative and your staff very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. After such a good experience with our first daughter's cord blood, there was no question about banking with Cryo-Cell again for our second. Christine and Robert

Tammie Fischer

I was just browsing all the wonderful stories and wanted to add ours. We struggled for many years to have our daughter. We used donor insemination and don't have access to the bio-father so we knew that we wanted to protect our daughter. It wasn't even a question. During our research, we found Cryo-Cell and knew that this was the place for us. It gives us peace of mind to know that if we needed help, we have you there for us. Thank you for all that you do to help those who need it and to give peace to those of us who need it. -Tammie Fischer  "Play with your children, it's the best investment you'll ever make!!"

Bailey

Bailey

My daughter Bailey is one of the first cord blood babies in my circle of friends. Although she is my third child, because her father is white and I am black, we felt it would be wise to bank her cord blood; as we are aware of the difficulties faced when ethnic and multi-ethnic people are faced with serious illnesses. We are also supporters of stem cell research and applaud Cryo-Cell for your groundbreaking research, strong reputation and continued advances. Your reputation describes Bailey to a T! She is a smart, strong, vibrant young lady whose attention to detail in her fields of interest and strong sense of justice and service will serve her and her community well. Just like Cryo-Cell. Thank you for the opportunity to share our story, and continued success and breakthroughs in your wonderful work. Sincerely, Sidney, Proud Cryo-Cell Mom

Lauren & Anthony

Lauren & Anthony

My name is Amanda L. My husband, Joseph, and I have used your service for our two children and have been extremely satisfied with both experiences. My daughter, Lauren, was born April 11, 2003 and my son, Anthony, was born January 12, 2005. My husband's sister had childhood leukemia so it was imperative to us that we enroll in a stem cell preservation program. Our main reason for choosing your particular service is simple: you were recommended by Anthony and Laura L. who were also extremely satisified with your service. I believe that word of mouth speaks volumes. I myself have recommeded you to Deanna B. and Suzanne S. and will continue to speak highly of your service.
