“I’ve come to terms with the fact that many things can happen to Cooper in the future, both good and bad like getting seriously ill. I want to make sure that I’ve done my part in guaranteeing that Cooper has the best way to cope. And since there are so many advances in cord blood banking and the service is already made available and affordable here in the Philippines through Cordlife, I just had to get it for both my children,” Arias said.

“Having found out that Cordlife is a recognized expert in the cord blood banking industry, with proven track record for successful release, I knew I found a reliable partner in providing a lifetime of protection for Noah. It gives me a sense of security and peace of mind, knowing that I am investing in Noah’s future. I’m glad I was able to seize the one chance to store my baby’s precious cord blood that he could use years from now should there be a need.” said Lara Quigaman, former beauty queen and actress.
Cord blood is taken from the remains in a baby's umbilical cord. Many research has proven and tested that the cord blood is rich in stem cells that can form all tissues and organs in our body. Stem cells are known to cure many critical cases such as Leukemia. In particular, cord blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells. (2)
There are also on-going clinical trials on its use to treat cerebral palsy, and autism. Cord lining, on the other hand, contains two types of stem cells, namely Mesenchymal and Epithelial stem cells (3), which are currently being studied for the treatment of stroke, myocardial infarction, and other potentials applications in regenerative medicine.
“As a health and wellness advocate, I get to talk to a lot of experts and most of them vouch for Cordlife. It's the name. It's the brand. It's tried and tested. It's something that has been there for a long time. I trust the experts that I talk to and I know that I made the best decision to bank my baby’s umbilical stem cells with Cordlife,” Nina Corpuz, Broadcast journalist said.
