"I am proud to have donated my children’s cord blood in honor of The Brady Kohn Foundation. Together moms can save lives one baby at a time. YOUR cord blood could save a life."
Mom - Kendall
Child - Joshua

"When we donated Joshua’s cord blood in 2005, BKF was still in the pilot phase of the public cord blood program. The only reason we decided to donate was because my prenatal exercise teacher, Dee, mentioned the foundation and the free option that was available. At the time, I had only seen flyers trying to get us to pay lots of money to privately bank it – this to me meant it must be important for some reason. So I figured if we could give it to someone else for free – why not??

Fast forward four years – and now I am President of the Board of Trustees. Obviously, I found out along the way how important cord blood is and I am very passionate about spreading the word and making sure that no mom goes without at least knowing what her options are and how she can Give Life. Twice."

"Life is so very precious & our little bundles of joy are truly miracles. The fact that cord blood could help save another life is amazing. I was thrilled I learned about the opportunity to donate my son's umbilical cord through the BKF. Why wouldn't I? There's no harm to myself or my child. How many chances do we have to save a life? The Brady Kohn Foundation made the process simple and easy. I will without a doubt donate my future child's cord as well."

"I donated my daughter's cord blood.I made the choice after personally meeting Brady's parents and learning about their mission. It was such an easy choice and great experience. I recommend donation to everyone I know. "

“Flush with the excitement of my first pregnancy, I sought a means to donate the life-saving cells nestled in my soon-to-be child’s umbilical cord. My research proved futile; there was no mechanism in place for such a gift to be made. After encountering great difficulty bringing my first born into the world, I was even more driven to share the miracle that my second pregnancy was healthy. The Brady Kohn Foundation provided just such a way to share my blessings and make the birth of my daughter even more meaningful. I was so impressed with the fact that in the two years between my daughter’s births the Foundation was able to efficiently fill this complete gap in donation services that I began volunteering on BKF’s behalf.”

"Knowing we potentially gave someone else's child a second chance at life is a feeling that cannot simply be put into words. It evens brings a smile to our daughter, Payton's face, knowing that Mommy & Daddy cared enough to help someone in need."

As a scientist and biologist I know all the medical reasons why cord blood donation is beneficial and have always been a supporter in theory. However, only when I became a mother could I really understand and realize the true potential of this life saving practice. To me the greatest gift we can give our children is not only life itself but the gift of knowing how to be a compassionate person. What better way to start out in the world than by having your child embody this trait through the gift of cord blood donation and the potential to save a life? For me there was never a question why I would donate my children's cord blood. How could I not donate, especially knowing that there was some child out there that could be saved by my simple, easy, pain-free act and as a result I would be starting my child's own life off with the greatest lesson I could ever provide. This is why I have donated both my daughter and son's cord blood and why I have been a volunteer for the foundation for three years. I believe in the gift of compassion and the gift of life.

"My husband and I moved to Delaware from Baltimore during my 27th week of pregnancy, but I continued visiting my doctor in Maryland until 34 weeks. At 34 weeks I switched to "All About Woman" at Christiana Hospital where I received information about the Brady Kohn Foundation. I wanted to donate her cord blood since we were not planning on freezing it for ourselves and I figured that it might as well be donated instead of just becoming medical waste. When I called to get information they sent the paperwork and I filled it out quickly, not knowing if I would go into labor early and not have the supplies for cord blood collection. The big day came and I proudly carried my box of supplies into the hospital with me. Christiana Hospital was so efficient that I had to ask my husband if they even remembered to collect the cord blood- they did! I am so happy that Abigail's cord blood is available to save a life! I will DEFINITELY donate with the rest of my babies (and if I have my way there will be 3 more!)"
