The Mason Shaffer Public Cord Blood Program at Main Line Health and Temple University Hospital
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.
In October, the Mason Shaffer Foundation helped support the efforts of “Be The Match” by participating in the First Annual “Be The Match” Walk/Run Philadelphia. We were joined by family and friends and helped raise $750!
