Want to make a difference in someone’s life? Consider donating your baby’s cord blood

Tweet In 2001 I had my first baby, and although it was a happy time for us, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of loss because one of the most important people in my life wasn’t there to share it with me. My cousin was 14 when she died in a car crash, and at the time I was …
