When planning for the birth of your child you often don’t think about the possibility of your child getting sick.  It is important to think about the future of your child and to be realistic about what could happen to your precious baby or another family member.  Storing your child’s stem cells can help save your child’s life in the future.

“At first we thought it would be very expensive, and although we knew we had to do it, we feared asking what it would cost.  Once we contacted Cryo-Save we were very surprised at how affordable it actually is,” says Darren “Whackhead” Simpson, a Radio Personality who recently stored his child, Nate’s, stem cells.

Whackhead is a household name; he is the host of the Breakfast Express on 94.7 Highveld Stereo and 94.7 Kfm. He is loved for among other things; his prank calls slot and his outspokenness. This highly influential radio personality recently celebrated the birth of his little one and stored his stem cells with Cryo – Save.

“When choosing between Stem Cell Storage Banks, you shouldn’t worry about a couple thousand rand here or there.  You are already in the game and made the commitment, you should be looking at quality, accessibility and reliability. You are making a big investment and peace of mind is invaluable,” he says.

For well over a decade it has been possible to store a baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cells at birth for future medical use. Rather than just discarding umbilical cord blood, many parents worldwide are now choosing to store their baby's stem cells for private use.  Cryo-Save South Africa plays an active role in making stem call storage possible in South Africa, facilitating the opportunity to provide an additional means of assistance and coverage against possible future disabling illnesses.

“I think the science of stem cell storage is a relatively new aspect in the mind of South African parents and they need to understand this has been in the research phase for decades already. Parents need to be aware of this ground-breaking science and take hold of this opportunity. It is that second chance you never want to regret not taking,” he adds.

This support of stem cells can make the world of difference to your child or family member.  It is a way of enhancing the safety and security of those who are a precious part of your life, making stem cell storage something to seriously consider when preparing to be a new parent.
