Many people are nervous about giving blood. The thought of anything related to a needle is enough to make their hair stand on end. There is one way, however, to give a potentially life saving blood gift without suffering any anxiety.
"It's an easy thing," said Mary Sumners of Grand Rapids. "It's super easy to do. I don't usually give blood, so it was a great way to give something." This easy thing is donating umbilical cord blood after childbirth. Cord blood is a rich source of adult stem cells.
