Cord blood for sickle cell

Hi everyone! My boyfriend has sickle cell and I've been doing some research and found that cord blood may be a potential cure, my sister is pregnant and wants to donate her baby's cord blood to him and I was wondering exactly how that would work and how we find out if her baby is a match??
