No child should suffer with a debilitating injury or disease – simply because their family can't afford
to bank their cord blood ... And now Xytex is doing something about it.
The hard truth is: Many cord blood treatments such as
cancer, infant brain injury, Tays Sachs Syndrome, etc.
are covered by some health insurance plans ... However, banking the child's cord blood is not. That cost can make
it impossible for the most vulnerable families to get the stem cell treatment their little one so desperately needs.
Why Xytex's Cord Trust Program Provides FREE Cord Blood Banking for Families who Need it Most
"We started out banking cord blood to help families and children, who really need stem cell treatment,"
says Michael Parish, Senior Vice President and CFO, Xytex Cryo International, Ltd. "Now we're making sure
banking costs do not stop a sick child from getting the cord blood stem cells that can save them."
Xytex's Cord Trust Program provides cord blood banking, collection, transport,
processing and 10 years of storage – FREE to families in need.
That means: When a child is diagnosed with a disease that is treated with cord
blood stem cells – and yet the family does not have the financial means to bank
the cord blood … Xytex's Cord Trust Program will cover all cord blood banking-related costs.
The cord blood can come from the sick or injured child ... Or from a first- or
For example: If a child is diagnosed with leukemia in utero, the cord blood
would come from the infant herself. While a child diagnosed with sickle cell
anemia at age 5 may receive cord blood from his infant brother or sister.
In both cases, families must qualify to participate.
