    Default Cord Blood

    Did you know that you can donate cord blood to public banks, and potentially save lives? Cord blood contains stem cells which can be used to cure many diseases. I wish I had know about this when I was pregnant. Perhaps by passing this site along, someone, will know someone, who will be moved enough to help. What a wonderful gift! Everyday I ask myself, "What if she were my child...?"

    I wish I had known about this when I was pg. However, going to that site has reminded me of one of the things I was going to do when I was no longer pg - get on the bone marrow donor registry! Filling in the form right now!! Thanks, lila's mum!

    I had the honour of meeting Katie when she was in hospital the same days as our son. She had just been admitted as they had determined that she had relapsed. Fortunately, my son didn't ( or should I say "hasn't yet") crossing all crossables, required a BMT.

    "This is local"

    Yes. I should have said that. Katie was a beautiful little girl who lived not too far from us. Children are dealing with this as we speak, and I was hoping to enlighten people on this important topic.

    Is your son in treatment? Please forgive me if you'd rather not discuss.
