Donate Cord Blood



A Lifesaving Gift

Stem cells can potentially help save the life of a person in need of a transplant. By donating your newborn’s cord blood, you are joining a nationwide effort to create a genetically diverse inventory of stem cells for transplant to a child in need.

Unless you arrange to donate or privately bank your newborn’s cord blood, it will be discarded and unavailable for transplant.  We hope you will consider sharing this gift of hope with someone in need.

How it Works

Cord blood donation is a simple and painless process and worth considering, even if you decide not to store your child’s cord blood for your private use.  Cord blood stem cells are successfully and routinely being used and have been saving lives for decades.

By choosing Cord for Life® to preserve this life-saving gift, you are assured that the highest quality and quantity of stem cells are available when they are needed most – when a child needs a transplant.

Minority Donors Needed!

If you are an African American, Hispanic, Asian or mixed race, it is very important for you to publicly donate your baby’s cord blood. Why? Because patients in need of a transplant are more likely to find a match from a donor of the same ethnic background. And because statistically there are fewer units collected from ethnic minorities in the national registries, finding a match can be especially difficult.

Step 1.  Register To Donate

The majority of expectant mothers are eligible to donate their child’s cord blood. Regulatory standards require that the mother be 18 years of age or older and provide a complete health history to ensure the safety of the mother, the child and the stem cell unit for unrelated transplant.
