I have always believed that if you have the opportunity to help someone out, you should. The universe seems to respond well to these positive actions, and I think that anytime that I am generous with my actions, that they get repaid sometime in the future. Maybe I am a little superstitious, but from what I have seen, this is how the world unfolds around me. That is why we agreed to make a cord blood donation when we were asked at the hospital.
Many people wouldn’t think that donating cord blood could make a difference, but let me tell you, it can. My niece actually benefited from the generous donation by another baby in her fight against cancer, and thanks to the cord blood she was able to beat the disease. I don’t know if she would even be around today if it wasn’t for the generosity of someone’s parents who decided to make a donation that saved her life.
So, when I decided to have children, I decided that we would donate the cord blood as well. It took a bit of convincing to get my husband on board, but after I explained how we were helping out another child by donating the blood, he agreed that it was the best thing that we could do. It feels great to know that we are making a difference in someone’s life.
