According to the National Marrow Donor Program, approximately 12,000 people are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases every year, and thousands of them will die waiting for treatment. A transplant of your baby’s cord blood could be their best, and possibly their only, hope of a cure. It is a painless, risk-free procedure that takes about 10 minutes after you deliver and could possibly save the life of someone in need of a transplant.
