The Mother's Day Gift of Life

What is the best Mother's Day gift you have ever received? Any Mom would treasure anything that their child had made themselves, whether it's a card with bits of paper glued to it or a lopsided clay bowl painted in watercolors - anything that comes from your child's heart is precious.

That's because your child is precious - a precious gift to be treasured each and every day. Mother's Day is a date on the calendar for us to honor and thank our Moms, but little do our children know, we are thankful for them every second of every day. Only when they become Parents themselves can they begin to know the love that our hearts overflow with for them unconditionally.

Moms-to-be, especially first time Moms, are able to experience the excitement of Motherhood, the newness of holding that tiny little human being in their arms for the very first time. The profoundness of it overcomes most of us - we are exhausted from seemingly endless hours of labor and pushing only to be introduced to this beautiful new soul - but there is an important part that happens after you begin to cuddle your tiny bundle - the cord and blood.

In delivery rooms all across the country after a baby is born, the cord and it's precious blood are discarded as medical waste. What a complete shame as this very cord that was your baby's life-line for nine long moths contains a vast supply of human stem cells, capable of potentially saving your child's life if, heaven forbid, they should ever need them. The opportunity to save these miracle cells exists for only a short time after birth and then it is gone forever - a lost opportunity if you don't plan ahead.

Banking your child's cord blood is becoming more and more common. The list of diseases that can be treated with stem cells from cord blood is growing by the minute - some afflictions that are being successfully treated are:

Acute Leukemia's
Chronic Leukemia's
Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Hematopoetic Cell Disorders
Myeloproliferative Disorders
Lymphoproliferative Disorders
Phagocyte Disorders
Inherited Metabolic Disorders
Inherited Immune System Disorders
Other Malignancies

The list is growing all the time - According to Cryo-cell's website: "New medical technology may well use these cells to rebuild cardiac tissue, repair damage due to stroke or spinal cord injuries and reverse the effects of such diseases as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s. While the research is in its early stages, the possibilities are extremely promising".
