Sherri was a vibrant, 39-year-old mother and wife. She had her whole life ahead of her, or so we thought, until the day when our family learned about her Leukemia diagnosis. We were all in shock because this was completely unexpected and seemed so random.
Her doctors said the cure could come in the form of a stem cell transplant, if a match could be found. Sherri kept her positive attitude and looked to the future. Meanwhile our family was relieved to hear that a cure was possible.
An exhaustive search of the public banks was executed by Sherri’s doctors, but unfortunately a suitable match was not available. Sherri battled on, but ultimately, the disease claimed her life in less than a year.
The inspiration for MiracleCord came out of my desire to help other families facing similar challenges.
MiracleCord is a private cord blood bank that was established to give families the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their baby’s cord blood and cord tissue stem cells will be readily available should a transplant be needed to save a family member’s life.
