Cryo-Cell Helps Haiti

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

The tragedy in Haiti is so devastating. Every time I watch the news I feel so saddened by what is happening there. When ever they show a child whose orphaned now I want to cry. Or when they show the starkness of the medical conditions down there, it just breaks my heart.

Many have come forward in ways to help Haiti. Now another company is helping too. And that is Cryo-Cell. They are donating 25 dollars from each enrollment to the “Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund." They are doing this throughout the month of February.

Cryo-Cell is a cord blood bank. They will bank your cord blood or umbilical cord blood. This is blood that remains in the the umbilical cord and placenta at the time of birth. Typically this has been discarded and thrown away in the past. But scientists have found that this is a rich source for stem cells. And has been a substitute for bone marrow and has had great success in thousands of transplants.

These cells that are taken from your baby's cord blood are obviously a perfect match for baby. These cells are perfect throughout his or her lifetime. For example if 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 more information and to enroll now visit Cryo-Cell's website. There you can learn more about stem cell research and Cryo-Cell. And please consider enrolling this month, because they will donate $25.00 to help Haiti.
