I have been a volunteer with Canadian Blood Services since 2002. My initial intrigue was with blood types and how that differentiates us as donors and potential recipients. THEN I became even more intrigued with STEM CELL RESEARCH, particularly saving the umbilical cord.
Stem Cell research is fascinating, yet somewhat elementary.
From recorded time, the umbilical cord has been preserved, revered honoured and respected by all tribes. It held a mystical power to protect the newborn, and was kept close to the family to ward off and cure potential illness - for the whole family. Although primitive in belief there was a deep connection and important message given by your God. The cord is the key to life. It brings life and carries the secrets and codes that bring life forth! It is not medical waste. It is not 'frankenscience' ... It is our special genetic code. We are harming no-one when we preserve the cord. We are helping all who need help. But we cannot help anyone if we continue to discard the cord as MEDICAL WASTE
