Cord Blood Donor Foundation  "Cord Blood" is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following birth. Cord blood stem cells have the ability to treat the same diseases as bone marrow with significantly less rejection. Cord blood is collected after the baby is born and the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut. It is painless and safe. When cord blood is collected and stored, the stem cells are immediately available for transplantation. Children make up a large portion of the 10,000 individuals each year who are unable to find a transplant in time."

Please read through the eligibility guidelines and/or health history questions to determine your potential eligibility. Also, before joining the Registry, it is important that all volunteers realize their commitment to patients and understand the steps of donation.

Blood Donor Programs

Give Regularly... If you’re healthy, your body-which has between 10 and 12 pints of blood-can easily spare about a pint, the amount that’s collected at a donation. Because the body begins replacing donated blood immediately; most people can give blood every eight weeks.

Blood drives are held throughout the year at schools, churches, synagogues, military bases, places of business and organizations in your community. Check the health section of your local newspaper for blood drive listings, and look in the Yellow Pages for the telephone number of the blood collection organization nearest you.

GiveLife.org "We encourage all eligible blood donors to schedule an appointment to give blood - the gift of life. The American Red Cross has recently expanded its ability to schedule blood donation appointments online. As such, not all donation opportunities are yet available online. Thank you for your patience and please continue to visit this site or call 1-800-GIVELIFE (1-800-448-3543.) It's only through your generous blood donations that ... Together, we can save a life.

"To give blood you must be healthy, at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, not have donated blood in the last 56 days or donated double red cells in the last 112 days. There is no upper age limit. You may not give blood if you have received notification from the American Red Cross or any other blood collection organization asking you not to do so."
