A Celebration of LIFE!

I am thrilled to say that the month of September marks the TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY of my cord blood transplant.  This is a cause for celebration, if I ever knew one! I can’t believe that it’s been two decades already. WOW…just saying that makes me feel so old.

The most shocking fact however, has to be the lack of progress that has been made in the area of cord blood awareness since my transplant. Unfortunately, nine out of ten people I speak to about this cause say they have no idea what I’m talking about. I have noticed that I have so much passion about this that I  could spend hours just explaining it to one person.

It is absolutely mind boggling to me that if everyone in the world knew about cord blood banking, there would be so much less suffering. What so many people don’t realize is that by throwing cord blood away, you are throwing a life away.

Please help me to celebrate this wonderful anniversary, by re-posting this blog post, sharing it with everyone you know, tweeting on twitter and updating your status on face book.

Together We CAN Help Save Lives
