Victoria Angel Registry of Hope

Victoria Angel Registry of Hope (VAR) is a charitable foundation associated with Cells for Life family cord blood bank since 2005. Named after Victoria Angel, a girl whose cord blood cured her mother of leukemia, VAR accepts cord blood donations from over 30 hospitals in southern Ontario. The VAR donations are processed and stored at the Cells for Life laboratory at Toronto General Hospital. Since 2005, VAR has screened thousands of interested parents, trained collection personnel, and has a storage rate of 25-30% of donations. VAR has recently released a cord blood unit for transplant to a child overseas.
