Bank cord blood and Help Haiti

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Cryo-Cell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

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.
