A Powerful, Natural Resource

Your baby’s umbilical cord is a magical thing. It is chocked full of valuable, non-controversial stem cells that are the building blocks of the human body—organs, tissues, blood and immune system. These powerful stem cells are giving medical researchers a powerful tool in the fight against degenerative diseases.

We provide families across the Midwest a safe and secure way to save their baby’s umbilical cord for private use, or the opportunity to donate it for someone in need. We are the only private blood banking system (family banking) within a nearly 500-mile radius of our laboratory in Springfield, Missouri—providing hope for families who want to take part of this new, and proven, modern medicine.

Medical researchers are constantly discovering new wonders about these naturally given stem cells from your child’s umbilical cord. Currently, cord blood is being used to successfully treat over 80-life threatening diseases including many cancers, bone marrow failure syndromes, blood disorders, metabolic disorders, and immunodeficiencies. Compare that to over 20 years ago when researchers only knew of one disease that could be treated with cord blood. And thanks to umbilical cord donations, researchers are exploring using cord blood for conditions like diabetes, cerebral palsy, autism, spinal cord injuries, stroke, and heart disease.

Diseases Treatable with Cord Blood

The advantages to saving or donating your child’s umbilical cord is paving the way for people to safely recover from what could be life-threatening diseases. With our expertise, you now have the opportunity to take full advantage of this powerful, natural resource.
