Cord Blood Donation

Please advise all of your friends, children, and grandchildren etc. to donate the cord blood from the birth of any child to a “cord bank.” This is normally discarded, but it is the richest source of stem cells that can be programmed to help many illnesses. Please ask your doctor for information as to where this cord blood can be donated. A kit will be sent to you by the center chosen for the delivery of the cord blood.
