To an outsider, Tommy Bacon and his baby sister Aria may look like any pair of close siblings. But the two have a bond that runs far deeper than most.

When Tommy was just two years old, he was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of leukemia, and the family was told his only chance of survival was a stem cell transplant from a healthy donor.

Following an unsuccessful donor search, a glimmer of hope arrived with the impending birth of a baby sister. The decision to preserve her umbilical cord blood with Cell Care, our Australian sister company, provided the life-changing stem cells required to treat Tommy’s condition.


Today, Tommy is happy, healthy, and cancer-free. The family is now advocating for other parents to store their cord blood in the hopes that it can save other children like Tommy.* As his mother, Kylie, puts it, “[Aria] came into our lives, and she saved his!”
