Over 100 clients have already registered for the CCB Sibling Registry.

Any California Cryobank client who had a child using a CCB donor may participate in the Sibling Registry. Adult children over age 18 may also participate. The program includes e-mail notification of potential sibling matches, client profiles, and a Sibling Registry bulletin board.

"Clients interested in 'expanding' their family, or those who are curious about potential siblings, have expressed interest in this type of program," said Marla Eby, Vice President of Marketing for California Cryobank. "The Cryobank is in the best position to confirm client status and the purchase of vials for a particular donor."

Participation in the CCB Sibling Registry is optional. There is an annual, non-refundable fee of $25 per subscription.
