My campaign is to collect enough names on my petition to make a difference and to try and influence the Government to fund the setting up, collection and maintenance of facilities to enable women to have their babies umbilical cords frozen for future use and for free instead of them just being disposed of. At the moment in this country you have to pay privately to have the cord frozen and stored and it costs quite a lot of money. The umbilical cords are very important to everyone, you may be ill yourself, have an ill relative or someone you know that needs a bone marrow transplant and an umbilical cord donation could save their life; my life was saved in September 2005 with a bone marrow transplant using a frozen and stored umbilical cord from a baby in Barcelona
