CAMPAIGN FOR ALL CANADIANS
The fundraising campaign "For All Canadians" has been launched to raise $12.5M to help build a National Public Cord Blood Bank.
Canada is the only G7 country that does not have a national Public Cord Blood Program -- we need to change that!
Together, we can build Canada's first national public umbilical cord blood bank.
