Focus on breast cancer awareness with Cryo-Cell

I'm sure we all realize its October, which means its breast cancer awareness month. There's so much more than just being "aware" about breast cancer though. Now's the time to start paying attention to what is going on in the world around you, the literature that is available, the precautions and the strides that are being made to get us to a point where breast cancer, (and all cancers hopefully) can be a thing of the past.

Cryo-Cell, America's most established family cord blood bank, has teamed up with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to expand on their knowledge of cell research. Cryo-Cell has made strides with banking cord blood, but why stop there when there's the possibility to help more with other "natural resources?" Cryo-Cell and C'elle are beginning to explore how menstrual cells can be collected, stored and used to help battle breast cancer.

Cryo-Cell, C'elle and NIH are getting heavy into this research, and could you imagine how wonderful it would be if its a option to use menstrual stem cells in breast cancer treatment?? You could say that its a scientific, ground breaking thing when "Aunt Flo" shows up each month!

Now ladies, Cryo-Cell has an awesome thing going here, not just with working with the NIH and C'elle, but you can "Protect Baby, Protect Mom" AND have a portion of the proceeds donated to the Susan B. Komen Foundation for each purchase. $50.00 is donated for the purchase that you make in the "Protect Baby, Protect Mom" program. When you enroll and purchase into the C'elle program, $25.00 is donated to the Susan B. Komen Foundation during the month of October. You can find out more about these programs here:

Cyro-Cell Breast Cancer Donation

Although stem cell research is a thing of great scrutiny, I'm still not sure why. I don't see what the issue is, if we can save so many lives. Save so many people from the pain and the toll that cancer takes on a body, why not invest in our own "natural, bodily resources" to take care of these diseases?

Your Wordless Wednesday post link went nowhere, so I backed up a few notches to find your blog. I'm guessing it will be a valid link once it auto-publishes at a set time?
