“Bank One, Give One”
Please see our press room for our press release about the “Bank One, Give One” Cord Blood Program. This program is important because it would eliminate fees of approximately $25,000 – $35,000 that a poor family would need to pay to use their own cord blood if they were to donate the cord blood to a public bank and then need the cells later. Also, since the public cord blood banks dispose of over 70% of the donations, there is no guarantee that the cord blood would be available to the same family that donated the cord blood. Americord is not profiting from this program.
