We believe in stem cell storage because we want the best for our children. Today stem cells are being used for the treatment of many blood related diseases and the future definitely looks very promising. When looking at basic scientific information in the media, one can easily see that the future is based on stem cells. So, we did not want to lose this unique opportunity.
We chose Cryo-Save to store both our babies’ stem cells because it is the largest in Europe and the most reliable among all the other banks in Greece. Its significant accreditations gave us the feeling that Cryo-Save knows what it is doing. Its contribution to research with international scientific collaborations, its experience with so many successfully stored samples and, most importantly, with the samples that they have already released for treatment were all very important factors for us.
Someone should store stem cells because there are already numerous diseases that they can treat, but also because they are the future of medical science. Nowadays, there are therapies emerging in which doctors use stem cells to help a patient’s body repair itself. This means children that have already had their stem cells saved could be the first to benefit.
