BENEFITING:

THE STORY:

Since its inception, the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation has facilitated bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants for patients around the world suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Gift of Life’s newest life-saving initiative - its Cord Blood Program - promises to save even more lives than ever before. Cord blood transplantation holds untold promise in providing a viable treatment option for patients who cannot find matched bone marrow or blood stem cell donors.

Cord blood remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following birth, and has a unique tissue type. Although it is usually discarded, cord blood is extremely valuable because it is rich in blood forming stem cells. After a baby's birth, this blood can be collected and frozen to save a life in the future. Since the cord blood is collected after the baby has been born and the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut, the collection is painless, easy and safe for both mother and baby. The normal birthing process is not altered in any way.
