This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Cryo-Cell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

As all of you know, I'm a big fan of companies that do thing to help out people in need. Cryo-Cell International has decided for the entire month of February (yes, I know..all few remaining days left) they will donate $25 from each enrollment to the “Save the Children: Haiti Relief Fund”.

Since 1992, Cryo-Cell has been helping families preserve the umbilical cord blood from their newborns. Cord blood, or umbilical cord blood, is blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta at the time of birth. In the past, this blood was discarded after delivery. But once scientists discovered it was a rich source of stem cells, umbilical cord blood became a viable substitute to bone marrow in thousands of successful transplants. Cells taken from your newborn are a perfect match for your baby for his or her lifetime. Along with cord blood banking, Cryo-Cell Cord Blood Bank is pioneering the way in research, to find more solutions to preserve stem cells in a noncontroversial way.

I know that stem cells is a touchy subject with a lot of people. However, as the parent of a child with Cerebral Palsy, I do wish that I had known about having cord blood banked. I wouldn't have hesitated to use it to try to help Ben. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that this was a possibility. I want to encourage all of you, whether you're pregnant or planning on having another child, to look into Cryo-Cell to see if it's a good option for you and your family. If you do decide it's something that you want to do, don't hesitate to enroll now.
