November 15th is World Cord Blood Day!

Today is World Cord Blood Day!

World Cord Blood Day started from a need to expand cord blood education globally. The world of medicine is quickly changing. In 1988, an important event happened that would forever change the way we look at our bodies and the birthing process.  The event was a cord blood stem cell transplant performed by Dr. Eliane Gluckman in France. It saved a young boy's life who was fighting Fanconi Anemia.

​To date there have been over 35,000 cord blood transplants worldwide. Cord blood stem cells are currently used to treat over 80 different life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma and sickle cell anemia.  Cord blood stem cells are also proving critical to new areas of regenerative medicine to potentially treat spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, autism, type 1 diabetes and much more.
