During my pregnancy, I kept hearing about the option to bank Holden’s umbilical cord blood. Unfortunately I didn’t educate myself incredibly well on it, but I always knew it would be a good thing to do. Cord blood is a huge step in stem-cell research (which I fully support). Banking your newborn’s cord blood can help fight against many diseases (God forbid your little one ever gets any). Cord blood is a lot like bone marrow, but a completely non-invasive process to get it.
If your child ever got a disease that needed a transplant, getting matching stem cells are incredibly difficult to get due to matching requirements. Banking your child’s cord blood means they would have those stem-cells immediately.
On top of that, your child’s stem cells have a 1 in 4 chance of matching a sibling, so it could help them as well.
Cryo-Cell is the leading private cord-blood bank. Since 1882, they have helped over 16,000 families worldwide preserve their newborn’s cord blood.
Recently we all learned about the devastation in Haiti due to the massive earthquake that hit it. We’ve all wondered how we can help, what we can do.
Throughout February, Cryo-Cell will donate $25 from each enrollment to the “Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund”. So as you safeguard the future of your newborns and families, you can also lend your hand to help rebuild the future for the children of Haiti. Cryo-Cell is the only cord blood bank contributing a portion of each sale to Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund.
I know it’s hard to put aside money and decide what is important with how strapped we all are for cash these days, but banking cord blood is an amazing gift to give your family and your child, and at the same time helping a country in ruin.

@WeberWriting Absolutely. It takes a bit of time and juggling but it is 100% doable. Just have to ignore the sanctimommies of the world
Don't feel bad for tossing frozen chicken strips in the oven and calling it dinner. Don't even feel bad if you don't turn them over. holdinholden.com/2016/05/shit…
To the piece of crap who broke into my car over the weekend- You think you found nothing of value to steal, but you actually took with you the nasty head cold my family has been passing around in that very vehicle for the past week. Enjoy, scumbag! xoxo, Germ Infested SUV

If anyone asks how I died, you can just go ahead and tell them "she was lured in by free pie in exchange for listening to 2nd graders screech Thanksgiving songs for 30 minutes"
