As a service to the public, CryoSave offers its Cost-free Family Donation Programme, free of charge*.
This programme is specifically designed to offer families in need the opportunity to have the cord blood stem cells of their expected new-born child collected and saved without any charges. The aim is to potentially treat a first-line relative, diagnosed with a life-threatening disease currently treatable by umbilical cord blood stem cells, in the near future.
In order to qualify, the family member must be diagnosed with a disease that is currently treatable with umbilical cord blood stem cells, be a first degree blood relative, and have an oncologist/haematologist who agrees that the stem cells can be used for treatment. If eligible, CryoSave will provide the collection kit and process and store the new-born’s cord blood sample, until needed, without any cost to the family.
