    I ran into the “Store a Tooth” display at CWD and had the same reaction. It may be too late for many PWDs, but one never knows what the future might bring!

    Our daughter was diagnosed at age 2 and so we did this when we learned about it. She is 9 now. The fee was not huge, our daughter was just beginning to lose her baby teeth and we thought “why not?” Wouldn’t we feel horrible if there was a cure with stem cells and we hadn’t saved her baby teeth even though we could have? So, we took the gamble.

    Hmm… I still have all four wisdom teeth – sideways and impacted, but not bugging me. Guess that’s another good reason to keep them in place – I’d gladly pull them out myself someday if it would fix my pancreas!

    The tooth fairy has tons of stem cells at her resource. Little does she know how valuable they are. But cord blood stem cells can help people with diabetes as well by helping product more insulin.
