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.
