My name is Justin Fuller and I am a Senior Client Coordinator and Training Coordinator at Cryo-Cell International. I have been involved in the cord blood banking industry since 2008, and have seen it progress dramatically over the past several years; especially with regenerative therapies such as cerebral palsy.
Cord blood and cord tissue banking is such an exciting industry to be a part of, and I consider myself very lucky to be able to speak and help others learn about the life saving benefits that are easily saved from within the umbilical cord.
Not only does this industry constantly challenge those who participate by advancing rapidly in health treatments, but it also allows those who truly care about helping others share their passion and knowledge. I was introduced to this industry by accident, and after only a week, I knew that I had found my niche because it hit so close to home.
Helping my sister
My older sister was born with cerebral palsy, the leading disease that cord blood stem cells have been used to help treat for the past 20 years. She struggled when we were in childhood to do many of the simple things that other children took for granted, and many times all I wished I could do was change that. At age 10, she finally had bilateral hip rotation to straighten out her legs and help her walk better. I’ll never forget pulling her around in a cart with a full body cast, and how happy she was a year later to finally have the cast and hardware removed.
When she told me she was expecting her first boy, I knew exactly what I would be contributing towards her baby shower; and again with her second son. I may not have been able to reverse her diagnosis, but I was able to do the next best thing. Educate her on the one time opportunity to capture lifesaving cord blood stem cells that could be used to help safeguard her family and two sons.
With something as uniquely important and special to a family as cord blood banking and cord tissue banking, I am proud to be working for the best company in the industry. Cryo-Cell International was not only the first company in the world to process and cryopreserve cord blood stem cells, but remains the world leader in setting the bar for other banks to follow regarding the strongest commitment towards quality for its clients.
If you were to list all the important attributes of cord blood banking companies that you could research and put on one excel sheet, Cryo-Cell would greatly surpass every cord blood bank in the industry on each one. It is easy to speak about something when there are only positive answers to give, when it is what you truly believe in with all your heart, and when the cord blood bank that you work for is devoted just as passionately towards helping and educating others as you.
