A world’s first allowed to save a young girl’s life

In 2005, the parents of a four year old girl suffering from leukemia were told their daughter’s chemotherapy had failed. The doctors had lost hope; they gave her a three months prognosis. Five years later, the girl is alive and doing well, she is even considered cured. She was infused by her own cord blood stem cells, which her parents had stored privately. This is the first time an autologous cord blood transplant has cured leukemia.
