I have always known that there was a special message about the event that saved my life. I witnessed my Mom speak at many different events, always with a clear message that cord blood saves lives.  This helped me grow into the person I am today and the passion I inherited from her to educate about the importance of stem cells.  There were several events that specially hold a dear place in my heart. One of them was in 1993, she was the spokes person for the National Children’s Leukemia Foundation.

For one of the events all of our family was flown to New York City. I had the opportunity to walk the red carpet for the first time and meet celebrities like Cindy Crawford, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Susan Lucci and many more. But, more importantly I had the chance to meet an amazing person that wanted to change the future for children affected with Leukemia. Steve Shor understands the pain involved in loosing a child to Leukemia, while waiting for a match to have a life saving bone marrow transplant. Instead of Steve moving on with his life, he made a decision to dedicate his future to help improve and prevent other families from suffering the same kind of sorrow he had to learn to live with. Cord Blood could have also saved his sons life.

Now almost 20 years later, Steve and his organization; NCLF have joined together with my personal choice of private cord blood bank; CorCell to work together to save lives.

I am very proud to be a part of this amazing team.

Together we can help save lives!
