Complete and Return the Donation Enrollment Form


Pack Your Collection Kit

After completing the donation form, a cord blood collection kit will be sent to you. This kit is free and will come with the prepaid shipment

Once you receive the kit, place it with the items you are taking to the hospital. You might even find it helpful to go ahead and pack it in your hospital bag.


Give it to the Hospital Staff

You can talk with your doctor, but more than likely the doctor will have you give the collection kit to hospital personnel – more than likely a nurse.

Once the hospital knows you are donating your cord blood, they will take care of the rest.
