As the mom of six, I know that nothing is of greater concern than the health and well-being of your children. My large family is a great source of joy, but with that joy is also added concern.
New technological advances in the health industry are amazing — and some of them can make parenting less worrisome. Recent innovations allow the collection and preservation of cord blood — the blood that remains in the umbilical cord after a child is born. This stem-cell rich blood is saved in case it is needed for future treatment of disease for your children. Research is currently being done to treat diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc.
Cryo-Cell, a leading in family blood banking, says:
…in the event your child contracts a disease, which must be treated with chemotherapy or radiation, there is a probability of a negative impact on the immune system. While an autologous (self) transplant may not be appropriate for every disease, there could be a benefit in using the preserved U-Cord® stem cells to bolster and repopulate your child’s blood and immune system as a result of complications from other treatments.
For a limited time, Cryo-Cell will donate $25 from each enrollment the the “Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund.” You can protect your family and help ease the suffering in Haiti at the same time.
