Umbilical Cord Blood Program
In the past, when a baby was born, the umbilical cord was thrown away. But today, blood for the umbilical cord can be collected after your baby’s birth and donated to a public cord bank to help someone with a life-threatening disease.
Cord blood transplants can help children and adults with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, or genetic diseases. More than 22,000 patients around the world have received transplants from donations to the public cord blood banks.
