Cord Blood Donation

When mothers deliver at NGMC, they have the opportunity to participate in mutual miracles: giving birth and providing life-saving cord blood to someone in need.

Cord blood, rich with blood-forming stem cells, can help patients who are in need of a bone marrow transplant or cord blood transplant. Cord blood transplants (an alternative to bone marrow transplants) have successfully been used to treat cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell disease. After a patient’s diseased marrow is destroyed, the transplanted cord blood stem cells act like seeds to re-grow healthy, functioning marrow.

Watch the short video below to find out more about free cord blood donation through LifeCord Cord Blood Bank.
