When my brother was diagnosed with MS, my parents decided to purchase cord blood storage for all of their grandchildren. Stem cells are used today in over 25,000 transplants to treat more than 80 diseases. It is reassuring to know that if my children get one of those 80 potentially devastating diseases, they wouldn’t need to wait to find a “match” from a potential donor, as their own stem cells taken from the umbilical cord at birth could be used.
Today at Mamasource, FamilyCord, a cord blood bank, is offering 50% off cord blood service and storage. What would normally cost $1945, you can get today for $975.
You have till May 22 to purchase this deal. Once you purchase the voucher, you’ll have till May 17, 2014 to redeem it. So if you’re having a baby any time in the next year, this will be worth your money.
