If you donated your baby’s umbilical cord to a public bank – thank you! Your baby’s cord blood produces stem cells that cure or treat many conditions, such as sickle cell anemia, diGeorge syndrome, Hurler syndrome, epidermolysis bullosa,  and so far up to 66 more. This entire month is dedicated to increasing awareness about umbilical cord blood stem cells.  If you are about to have a baby, we hope you will consider saving the cord  for potential private use or donating to a public bank. Some hospitals easily expedite this process (and others don’t, unfortunately). And if you are not expecting a baby, please mention this life-saving option to your friends and family who are expecting – as a way of celebrating Cord Blood Awareness Month. It’s a great opportunity to help the gift of life keep on giving!
