WE NEED YOUR HELP!!


October 18, 2010

 

On October 18th Community Blood Services will be asking the NJ legislators to support Senate Bill S1534 and Assembly bill A1642. If passed, this legislation will provide sustainable funding for our cord blood program. This funding is critical to continue the program and help save more lives.

Bill A1642 and Senate Bill S1534 would provide funding to the NJCBB by collecting a $5 fee for each certified copy of a birth certificate issued in New Jersey. The $5 fee will be deposited into a non-lapsing revolving fund to be known as the New Jersey Public Cord Blood Bank Fund and used to support the state –designated public cord blood bank in collecting, processing, and storing cord blood for public use.

To date, our program has shipped over 225 cord blood units to treat critically ill patients worldwide.

Please consider signing and sending the attached letters to your local representative.
