Just the other day, Rex, London, Maddie and I opened the mail to find the birth announcement in the mail for my BFF Melissa's beautiful daughter, along with a bunch of photos of the little cutie and her big (three-year-old) brother... born a little early at the end of April, she's just about two months old now.
I know Melissa and her husband made the decision before the birth to store their new baby's cord blood, but by delivering two months ago, she missed the big sale at Cryo-Cell. Right now until Sunday, June 28th, 2009, Cryo-Cell is offering a special $725 discount on their U-Cord service for expectant parents to store their baby's cord blood. Rex and I banked both London and Maddie's umbilical cord blood way back when they were born in 2001 and 2002, when it wasn't as trendy as it is now. It just seemed to make sense as a sort of "insurance policy" for our daughters' healthy future. Cord blood stem cells are a 100% (perfect) match for the infant donor throughout life, as well as a one in four match for a sibling. While we will hope that no one in our family ever needs the banked cord blood, over 12,000 umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants occurred worldwide, treating over 75 different serious diseases.
Cryo-Cell is the industry leader in cord blood banking with over 175,000 clients and more accreditations than any other private cord blood bank. From now until Sunday 6/28/09, just use the promotional code HOT to save $725 on Cryo-Cell's U-Cord service.
