Donating umbilical cord blood is a simple and safe way to make the birth of your child into someone else’s second chance.
Umbilical cord blood has an important and growing role in the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia and other life-threatening diseases. In fact, more than 25,000 patients around the world have received cord blood transplants because parents have generously decided to donate their baby’s umbilical cord blood to a public cord blood bank.
Harmless to both parent and baby, cord blood is painlessly collected just after birth.
Through cord blood donation, your child’s birth offers you a unique chance to contribute to community health. If you’re interested in donating, talk to your OB/GYN provider or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, preferred contact information and “Interested” in the subject line. Cord blood donation at Valley Medical Center is in collaboration with Bloodworks Northwest Cord Blood Donation Program. A member of the team will contact you to discuss this opportunity and answer questions.
