We would like to introduce to someone. . . a young boy who needs a cord blood transplant as soon as possible. His story is why we believe public donation is so important. If you are expecting a baby, please consider donating your child’s cord blood. It could save the life of someone else. . . maybe even Noah’s.
Here is his story:
Noah is the son of Scott and Nancy Swanson. Born on September 18, 2009, Noah was diagnosed with severe Neutropenia and Myelodysplastic Syndrome. He has been classified as having Refractory Cytopenia of Childhood (RCC) MDS. The doctors at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, have recommended a life-saving bone marrow transplant or cord blood transplant.
Learn more about Noah on his website: http://cota.donorpages.com/PatientOnlineDonation/COTAforNoahRDS/
The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-needy patients. You can help contribute to Noah’s fund by following the link above.
*Noah is also a budding artist! Check out his artwork and the work of other children who are making a difference in the world in our Young Artist Gallery. You can also submit your child’s artwork to support this worthy cause (FREE to participate). Sign up here: www.YoungArtistsProgram.org
