This is too complicated a question to answer here.

In brief: Banking stem cells

There is some controversy regarding this topic currently.
The viability of banked stem cells is not great for one. However, the real issue is that while you can bank your cells, according to current fda guidelines, you can't use them on yourself, and certainly not on someone else. Hopefully this will someday change.
