I had a close family member that was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 39. She was a vibrant mother and wife that loved running, art, and her family more than anything. We were devastated the day our family learned about her Leukemia diagnosis.
Her doctors said the cure could come in the form of a stem cell transplant if a match could be found. Our family was relieved to hear that a cure was possible, and we had hope for the future.
An exhaustive search of the public banks was executed by her doctors, but unfortunately a suitable match was not available. Though she battled on, the disease claimed her life in less than a year. It was a tremendous loss for my family.
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.
