To Expectant Parents:
You can give the gift of life to your child today
Now that you are expecting a baby, you will make all kinds of decisions that will determine your child’s future. To help you make these decisions, be aware of your options. You now have an option that could save your child’s life some day. But you must act immediately! The time of birth is the only time it is possible to acquire lifesaving umbilical cord stem cells. What is routinely discarded at birth can now be frozen and stored long-term for use by your child, a sibling, another family member or another compatible recipient.
Today, stem cell therapy is already being used to treat leukemia, various kinds of cancers and blood diseases, and immune system and genetic disorders. As stem cell transplants become a more routine medical procedure, they will be used in gene therapy and in fighting other diseases, such as lung cancer, juvenile diabetes, sickle cell anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, lupus and AIDS.
Children can contract leukemia even if there is no prior history of cancer in the family. Storing cord blood stem cells at birth will insure that a matching transplant will always be available for your child.
Thousands of children in the United States develop leukemia and other blood disorders each year. Leukemia and related blood cancers cause more deaths among children than any other disease. These children might be alive today if they had cord blood stored at birth.
What should YOU do? ACT NOW!
If your baby is due soon, please act quickly and contact NCLF for more information. Your doctor may not yet be familiar with the many cases where stem cells from cord blood, rather than from bone marrow, have been used effectively for treatment of disease. We will contact your doctor and send him all the necessary information.
But please do not delay. This is one decision you must make during your pregnancy. The baby’s name can wait, furnishing the nursery can wait–almost every choice you’re faced with can be postponed until after the baby is born. But not this one.
