The Duke University cerebral palsy clinical trial in the US is using patient’s own cord blood stem cells to deliver real improvements to their condition for the very first time. However, enrolling your child on trials like this can be expensive.

+PROTECTExtra pays out a £50,000 lump sum in the event of a cerebral palsy diagnosis, making this trial, or others like it, a viable option for anyone, no matter their financial circumstances. Alternatively, you can choose to spend the money on what ever you like, including your child’s term care, or other palliative treatments.
