My six year old daughter was diagnosed with T1 in January of this year, just before we found out I was pregnant. Whilst I'm not one who is necessarily holding out for a cure any time soon, I am interested in the research going on around the use of stem cells and how banking blood from a sibling cord could be of use. Does anyone know any more about it than me? Also interested in other people's opinions and what they'd do in my position? I think we may go ahead with the procedure anyway as I can't help thinking "what if" or "I really wish we'd done it when we had the chance" ten years down the line.
