Designated Transplant Program for Families in Need
As a public service, CELL SAFE provides the Designated Transplant Program (DTP), free* of charge, to families wishing to store their newborn's umbilical cord blood stem cells for a family member diagnosed with a life-threatening disease treated by stem cells. This includes diseases such as Sickle Cell Anemia and Acute and Chronic Leukemias.
How to Qualify
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- or second-degree blood relative, and have an oncologist who agrees that the stem cells can be used for treatment. If eligible, CELL SAFE will provide the collection kit and process and store the newborn's cord blood sample, until needed, without any cost to the family.
