Kody and Danielle Chase were devastated to learn that their seemingly perfectly healthy newborn son, Eli, had been diagnosed with Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Syndrome (SCID).
Born without an immune system, Eli had no way of fighting off disease or infection. Children with SCID rarely live to see their second birthday without an immune-restoring treatment.¹
As luck would have it, Eli had a fighting chance against this life-threatening disorder because his parents had preserved his big sister’s newborn stem cells with our American sister company, CBR®.
“The outcome is amazing. He’s a healthy, thriving little boy.”
The Chase family saw for themselves how a cord blood stem cell transplant gave Eli a second chance at life. They hope by sharing their experience expectant parents will help protect their family’s future health and preserve the newborn stem cells for each and every one of their children.
