The First Step to a World of Possibilities
According to the March of Dimes, one out of every eight pregnancies in the U.S. results in a premature birth. Infants who survive premature birth face a higher risk of developing neurological complications, such as cerebral palsy, where limited treatment options currently exist. With the Newborn Possibilities Program, we can make a difference.
The mission of Newborn Possibilities is to help advance clinical research investigating the use of a newborn's own cord blood stem cells to help the body regenerate damaged tissue and restore lost function.
The nonprofit Newborn Possibilities Fund provides financial grants to medical institutions conducting FDA-authorized clinical trials in this emerging field of medicine.
Our greatest hope is that this groundbreaking research can benefit children with serious conditions that have few treatment options today.
