 The Mason Shaffer Public Cord Blood Program at Main Line Health and Temple University Hospital

IMG_5534This April, we will celebrate our 1 year anniversary at Temple University Hospital and in May, we will celebrate 4 years at Lankenau Medical Center!

The Mason Shaffer Public Cord Blood Program continues to be a thriving success thanks to all the hard work and dedication of our Collection Specialists and Hospital Staff.  With their help, to date, MSPCBP has collected 2500 Cord Blood Units and banked an amazing 350 Units that are available worldwide to those in need of a Bone Marrow Transplant.  We have happily released 4 Units for transplant (from Lankenau) so far and are eagerly awaiting our first release from Temple!

As always, it is FREE for families to donate their babies Cord Blood.
