LifebankUSA + MamaRoo Giveaway!

Through cord blood banking, you can collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells, and doing so could one day save the life of your child or a blood relative.  Think about that.

You can bank even more stem cells by collecting them from two usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta.  This service is called Placental and Cord Blood Banking, and it's available only from LifebankUSA.  Whether you choose Placental and Cord Blood Banking or Cord Blood Banking alone, there are many important reasons to consider choosing LifebankUSA.



And can you guess what?  I'm gonna inform you as to why that may be a good idea for you and your family.

When you're pregnant, your baby is protected in the womb.  And then they enter the world.  There are a million things to think about and prepare for, but an invaluable step parents can take is to preserve his/her stem-cell rich cord and placenta blood.  The ability of stem cells to save lives via cord blood banking has proven successful for replacing abnormal or diseased cell,s and treating life-threatening blood disorders such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.  In fact, since 1988 stem cell transplants have been used to treat some 80 diseases.

When you bank with LifebankUSA, they include tissue banking (which is tissue from your placenta) for "free" [1: see other things you should know below].  Placental tissue contains mensenchymal cells (MSCs) and MSC-like cells.  While stem cells found in cord blood and placenta blood have been used to successfully treat patients, there are currently no approved uses for stem cells derived from the umbilical cord or placenta tissue.  Possible therapeutic applications are in early research stages and LifebankUSA's parent company is actively involved in their development.  LifebankUSA will store the placenta tissue for you as part of it's complete banking package using cryogenic tanks for long-term preservation.  In the event your baby's tissue cells are ever needed for future therapies, the tissue may then be processed and cultured using available technology at that time [2: see other things you should know below].  Tissue banking is just one more layer of protection and peace of mind offered by LifebankUSA.

Along with peace of mind, LifebankUSA wants to give parents the chance to win a coveted baby item - the 4Moms mamaRoo.  With the Facebook contest they are holding, LifebankUSA is giving away a 4Moms mamaRoo (valued at $260 each) to two lucky winners.  The mamaRoo bounces up and down and sways from side to side in a similar fashion as parents do when comforting their babies.  It plays soothing nature sounds and has the option of plugging in your own MP3 player.




The promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by - or associated with - Facebook.  By entering the contest, you understand that you are providing your information to LifebankUSA and not to Facebook.

Other things you should know:
1. Storage fees apply after the first year.
2. Clients will be responsible for the cost of shipping the tissue and any culturing or expansion of the cells.
3. The chance that a child will use his/her own stored stem cells during his/her lifetime for currently treated conditions is estimated at 1 in 400.29 These odds may increase if there is a family history of certain blood disorders or cancers.
4. You can visit the LifebankUSA website to request a free information kit.


As with any big decision you make, think before you act.  Before you make any choices - think of the "222" rule:  How will you feel about your decision in two weeks?  In two months?  In two years?

To speak to a representative, you can call 1-877-543-3226.
