More and more parents are saving their children's cord blood. For that reason, the largest cord blood bank in the country is in Tucson.

Cord blood stem cells have helped to cure at least 80 different diseases. One sample has about a half a cup of blood containing millions of stem cells. CBR is the largest cord blood storage facility in the country. Babies from all over the US have cord blood stored here.
