Our story started 23 years ago when our founder’s nine-year-old daughter was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. In a world of tests, doctors and desperation, she needed a miracle cure to stay alive. The only potential cure was a matched sibling donor stem cell transplant. But she had no siblings.
Out of desperation, her mother was tested and found to be a 100% tissue match – a one in a million miracle! The stem cell transplant saved the little girl’s life and her mother’s life was changed to one with a new purpose: to give back to this community in any way she possibly could.
After a journey of two decades gaining experience and meeting people with a shared vision, CELVI was born. Our team’s mission is to provide options of lifesaving treatments, made possible with newborn cord blood and tissue stem cells.
Her little girl survived and is living the life she was destined to live.
This is your opportunity to join the movement and save the lives of our children.
