Donor Categories- defined for you. (Fairfax, Fairfax Graduate, Family Solutions and ID Option)
Visit our interactive donor search. This feature lets you search the entire Fairfax Cryobank donor register and then create a list of donors most
desirable to you. Each donor has an extensive list of additional information that may be of interest to you in this selection process. These items can be ordered, some for a fee, online. Our donor register is updated on a daily basis so please check back frequently for new information.
Donor Childhood Photos:
Donor childhood photos are available on 99% of our donors.
Photos of the donor are between 6 months and 6 years of age. Please note that the quality of the baby photos varies depending on the original photo that the donor has supplied to us. Some photos are in colour while others are in black and white. Click here to view an
example childhood photo.
Lifetime photos which include adult photos are now available on a select group of our donors.
Donors provide a series of photos from infancy
through adulthood. Donors who have Lifetime photos available
will be indicated as such on the donor search by a camera icon. For more information about this exciting service click on: Lifetime Photos.
A profile photograph of the donor has been shaded to show only the line of his side profile. This is a great way to view the adult donor's physical characteristics, yet keep him anonymous. Read more about our silhouettes here.
Donor Audio Interviews:
Audio interviews are available on most of our donors. Interviews provide
insightful information into the donor's childhood, aspirations, accomplishments,
values, family life, and personal interests in his own words. The audio interviews range in length from 7-25 minutes, averaging about 12 minutes in length and the shorter 10-20 second audio clips are downloaded for free. Click here to listen to an example
audio clip or sample audio interview.
Donor Summary Profiles:
Summary profiles are two page summaries of the significant medical
and genetic histories of the donor and his family. Of course, any perspective donor
who had a medical or family history that would put his offspring
at risk for significant issues would be rejected during the screening process. Any medical or personal updates we receive from the donor are placed on the summary profile. Summary profiles can be viewed free of charge. Click here to view an example
Donor Medical History Profiles:
Medical profiles provide detailed background medical,
family history information on the donor, his siblings, parents, aunts, uncles,
and grandparents. They also include genetic disease testing the donor had done during the screening process. Medical profiles are approximately 9-12 pages in
length and give extensive medical history information including a list of medical conditions in relatives. See a sample of a medical profile here.
Donor Personal Profiles:
Personal profiles comprise 15 or more pages of detailed personal information
about the donor, his siblings, parents, and grandparents. Some of
the donor's personal information includes his interests and goals,
academic scores, military record, specific facial features, and other
details about family members. See a sample personal profile here.
Keirsey Personality Testing:
Many of our donors have results of their Keirsey Temperament Sorter available for a fee. To read more about the testing and what results mean, please visit our webpage on personality testing. You can also select to have the testing done on yourself and then compare your results to that of the donor.
Essays are available on a most of our donors. These essays are
a series of questions and answers that we hope will tell you a little
more about our donors on a personal level. Like each one of you, every
donor is different. Some are men of few words, and some we can't stop
from talking. Click
here to view an example essay.
Donor Staff Impressions:
Staff impressions are available on a most of our donors. These
reports were developed due to numerous requests from patients. Many
patients simply wanted to know "what do you think of this donor?" Staff
members who work directly with the donors on a daily basis write our staff
impressions. Most are written, however a few have staff audio clips talking about the donor as well. Click here to view an example
Donor Profiles Sets:
Donor profile sets are available on a majority of our donors. Profile
sets can be ordered as complete or partial sets. The complete profile set includes the medical and personal profiles, audio interview, silhouette and
childhood photo. The partial profile set includes the medical and personal profiles and audio interview. Profile sets provide a significant discount compared
to ordering each item individually.
