Cord Blood Banking Guest Post and a $250 Off Coupon Code

When I first started doing my All Things Baby Event, I was contacted by ViaCord about doing a post on Cord Blood Banking.  Since I know nothing about the subject, I thought a guest post on the subject would be more helpful and informative to you all.
 
If interested in learning more about ViaCord or the importance of Cord Blood Banking after reading their story, check out the ViaCord website!   They have kindly offered all of my readers a $250 off coupon code to help you get started- BLG_250_ODT

Below is a Guest blog post from parent Amy Murphy about her daughter, Katie, and cord blood banking.



When our daughter Katie was born, my husband and I thought she was perfectly healthy. It wasn’t until she was six months old that we started noticing she wasn’t developing like she should have been for her age, including sitting up on her own. She was soon diagnosed with hypotonia, a rare condition more commonly referred to as “Floppy Baby” syndrome that causes weak muscles and hindered her ability to crawl, walk, talk, and control fine motor skills.

Luckily, before Katie was born, we made the decision to bank her umbilical cord blood with the family cord blood bank ViaCord because of my family’s history with leukemia. Even though the decision to bank was an easy one for us, we could not have anticipated needing to use it. After some research, we learned about a study at Duke Medical Center using stem cells from cord blood to treat kids’ cerebral palsy. Katie met the requirements for the study and in January 2010 she received a stem cell transplant from her own cord blood to repair and replace damaged cells in her body.

She is now five-years-old and since her stem cell transplant, we’ve seen so many improvements. She is much more motivated to walk, and has increased leg strength, muscle tone, and focus. She’s also recently outgrown her need for glasses (which she originally wore for balance and seeing objects up-close). Her story has gained local and national attention as an inspiration for those dealing not only with hypotonia, but any affliction that inhibits someone from leading a regular lifestyle.

While her progress to date has not been easy, she is making big gains both physically and cognitively since her cord blood transfusion. I feel confident that Katie’s cord blood stem cell transplant, along with her regular therapies, will continue to help her develop to the point where she can enjoy a healthy and active childhood. I document her progress on my own blog, Katie's Progress, as a testament to how far along she has come and invite you to visit!
