One question, Terry:  The kit is $300, including 5 years of cryo-storage.
How much does storage cost after that?  I couldn't find this info on
the Web site.

Answer: Kenita, the company charges $25 per year after the first  5 yrs and
they have other plans available in addition to the 5 year plan (10 years, 20
years, perpetual). See www.youthcell.com  for aditional information.
