    Cell Vault - It's probably not what you think it is.

    When I saw the Cell Vault sign at this display I thought was a way to secure your smartphone. I couldn't have been more wrong. This system is very different. Here's a bit of info from the company: 1  in 3 people are expected to get cancer in their lifetime. Cell Vault has launched the world’s first t-cell bank to give individuals an opportunity to jumpstart their fight against cancer. Just as women freeze their fertile eggs, Cell Vault allows you to preserve your disease-fighting t-cells in case they can be used in a future medical treatment. In 2017, the FDA approved CAR-T therapy – a ground-breaking procedure that uses a patient’s own t-cells to beat blood cancers. Because your immune system weakens as you age, your t-cells will never be as strong, viable, and plentiful as they are right now. It all starts with ordering a kit and scheduling a quick blood draw. Once banked, your cells will be safely secured and ready to fight your personalized battle with a future disease. So bank your strongest cells today, to give yourself a fighting chance against the cancers of tomorrow. --- Check the company website for more details and prices. Storage of the t-cell is expensive, but less expensive than I would have guessed. It certainly is a whole new technology available to consumers.
