Americord Celebrates National Cord Blood Awareness Month
Responsibly Informing Parents-to-Be Is A Core Company Mission
NEW YORK, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Americord has made a name for itself as a company that offers the highest quality cord blood banking services at the lowest cost in the industry. The company has also dedicated itself to responsibly raising awareness about the potential benefits of cord blood banking. In fact, Americord approaches every month as though it were National Cord Blood Awareness Month. Their marketing tag line “Cord Blood. Simplified.”, truly captures their mission, which is to make the complex medical aspects of cord blood banking easy to understand and make cord blood banking as simple and affordable as possible.
National Cord Blood Awareness Month is a federally promoted program that aims to increase public recognition of the successes of cord blood banking. Cord blood, which is found in the umbilical cord and in the placenta, is an easily accessible source of stem cells that is available only when a baby is born. Stem cells from cord blood have been used in medical therapies for more than 80 diseases and conditions, including leukemia, lymphoma, and certain genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia.
Americord’s website has been written and organized to provide comprehensive information that is easily understood by people who do not have a medical background. Americord also reaches out directly to parents-to-be by attending leading baby industry conferences, including those hosted by “Big City Moms” in New York and Los Angeles.
Americord offers cord blood banking for approximately 50% less than leading cord blood banks, and this price includes the cost of a medical courier as well as 20 years of storage in their state-of-the-art CLIA Certified, AABB accredited laboratory. To help even more parents be able to afford cord blood banking, Americord offers 12-month payment plans. The company also does not charge a cancellation fee, even if the cancellation is at the last minute. Americord offers cord tissue banking and placenta tissue banking in addition to cord blood banking.
