Sibling Donor Program
StemCyte’s Sibling Donor Program makes it possible for expectant families to store the cord blood stem cells from their baby’s umbilical cord and placenta, for a sibling who is in need of a stem cell transplant. Through our program, the collection of these precious cells is at no cost to the families in need. Once eligibility requirements have been met, a cord blood collection kit is shipped to the expectant mother as she awaits the arrival of her baby. Upon delivery of the baby, her delivering doctor will complete the cord blood collection and the lifesaving stem cells will be shipped to our laboratory for processing. The stem cells are then cryopreserved until the treating physician requests the cord blood unit for transplant. Since 2009, StemCyte has helped 137 families through the Sibling Donor Program and 3 of those Cord Blood Units have been transplanted to treat the affected sibling. For additional information such as eligibility requirements, please contact a Sibling Donor Coordinator at 866.389.4659 or siblingdirected@stemcyte.com.
