Cryo-Cell Donates to Haiti Victims

February 5, 2010


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

Have you heard of Cryo-Cell? They are the leading cord blood bank company in the industry. “Cord banking” refers to the storage of umbilical cord blood. This blood is filled with stem cells– the blood is typically thrown away after the baby’s birth. I don’t see why some people are so intent on “using” aborted babies for their stem cells (which is totally inhumane and disgusting) when stem cells abound in cord blood. There is more ongoing research, and thankfully Cryo-Cell is taking the lead. You can read loads more about stem cell research and Cryo-Cell’s contribution at their website. In a nutshell, Cryo-Cell provides cord-blood harvesting kits to expectant parents. When the baby is born, a small sampling of the baby’s umbilical cord blood is harvested. This portion is sent to the Cryo-Cell storage facility. The blood is reserved for future use for the child or a sibling. The benefits for this are on many levels– for one, that cord blood which is full of stem cells is reserved for your child should he or she ever need it. Research is showing that stem cells can help treat and even resolve certain diseases, such as diabetes and immunity disorders and etc. Moreover (and this happened to a relative of mine), stem cells from one child can help an ailing sibling. I had a niece who had leukemia as a baby, and no match could be found for a bone marrow donor. After the birth of her baby brother, however, my niece found her match; but bone marrow harvesting is a painful process; no kid should have to go through that. If cord blood had been available for her, I’m sure it would have been better for her and her little brother.

Cryo-Cell’s umbilical cord blood storage system is ground-breaking. And now Cryo-Cell is trying to help out the earthquake victims in Haiti. Throughout February, Cryo-Cell will donate $25 from each cord-blood subscription enrollment to the the “Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund.” If you’ve been waiting in the wings for your chance to check out Cryo-Cell, here it is. And you can help a worthy cause, too. Click this link to enroll now.
