With Preston's type of leukemia, if he relapses, he will require a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, there are no matches in our family and will need to look to an outside donor.
When you join the The Match registry, you become a part of every patient's search for a bone marrow donor. You could be the one to save a life. Bone marrow testing can be done in your own home with a simple swab test or by visiting a testing center. Please visit www.bethematch.org for more information.
Banking your cord blood is a very expensive decision to make when having a child and in the past umbilical cord blood was throw away. If you decide that you are not going to bank your cord blood, please donate your umbilical cord blood and give birth to hope that you can save someone's life. It is free and they do not take any blood from your baby. Please visit http://www.bethematch.org/ for more information on donating your babies cord blood.
