Lifebank CEO Ernest Stacey offered his congratulations to the Wong family of Vancouver as their stem cell deposit was registered as number ‘10,000’. Ernest Stacey said, “it’s hard to imagine that when we launched Lifebank in 1996 that only 13 years later we would hit this significant event and the number would be achieved with a 2nd deposit from the trusting Wong family.

Chantal, mother of two Emily 2 years and Adam 5 months, expressed her commitment to the health of her children and decision she made to store cord blood stem cells with Lifebank. Ernest Stacey says, “we continue to expand our awareness to Canadian families about how advancements in bio medical technology are available to all families”.

Lifebank was the first service in Canada to offer families umbilical cord blood stem cell processing and storage. Lifebank is a fully accredited cord blood stem cell bank which continues to increase presence across Canada. Our growing family of biomedical professionals will enable Lifebank to meet the increasing demand for this precious service.

Unlike the controversial practices of using embryonic cells to grow human tissue, the collection of blood stem cells from the umbilical cord is an ethical, painless, and efficient means of preserving some of nature's strongest defenses against disease.  Umbilical cord stem cells are proving invaluable for the treatment of such diseases as leukemia, metabolic disorders, immune disorders, bone marrow failure, genetic disorders, and many others
