Five-year-old Chloe Levine is a living testament to the power of cord blood stem cells. Chloe suffered a stroke before she was born. During her first year, she demonstrated paralysis on the right side of her body and at her 1-year-old check-up she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
At 2-years of age, Chloe underwent an experimental treatment with her own cord blood stem cells, which her parents choose to preserve at birth. Today, she shows no sign of paralysis. Not only can she walk, but she can run. She attends mainstream preschool.
The goal of Newborn Possibilities is to advance clinical trials to verify that this is an effective treatment option that could benefit more children like Chloe. With the money we raise, we can open up life’s possibilities to other infants and children.
