When my brother Andrew needed stem cell treatments, my family couldn't find a match because we're mixed race.

Why I founded Anja

“Anja (pronounced an•jah) is named after my brother Andrew. Cord blood was his last chance at treatment for cerebral palsy, but we couldn’t find a match because we’re mixed race.”

Our mission

We are on a mission to create one more treatment option through the power of stem cells.

Who we are

Anja is a women-led team based in Los Angeles founded by Kathryn Cross after her brother passed away from cerebral palsy, a disease that could have been treated with his own cord blood stem cells if they had been saved at birth.

Our team is passionate about helping parents learn about stem cell banking and helping save stem cells from as many births as possible.

Anja Advisory Board

Medical professionals dedicated to the cause.

Dr. Allison Rodgers


"Anja's founder has an amazing personal story - her brother couldn't find a stem cell match. I banked blood for each of my 3 kids, and it's so nice to know that I have it."

Dr. Jitsen Chang


"It is easy to talk about disparities in healthcare, but Anja Health is putting words into action. Kathryn Cross is motivated by her little brother's history. That's what makes Anja Health stand out from other cord blood banks. Kathryn's personal connection to innovative stem cell treatments authenticates Anja Health's 'patients over profits' cord value. This type of disruptive, entrepreneurship is exactly what the healthcare industry needs."
