TUCSON, Arizona (November 1st, 2011) – “When you give cord blood, you give life twice”, said the co-founder of Save the Cord Foundation, Charis Ober on KGUN-9 News. Now on national tour, the BIRTH Art Exhibit, presented by Save the Cord Foundation and in partnership with artist Rachel Manley, will be featured November 4th, 2011 at the launch of the new Lund Family Birth Center at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center in Gilbert, Arizona (www.mercygilbert.org). The BIRTH Art Exhibit is being used throughout the country in an effort to educate the general public about the life-saving benefits of saving a child’s cord blood at birth. The event at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center will also launch a long-term educational program led by Save the Cord Foundation at the birth center.
The Save the Cord Foundation continues to seek partners across the country who are interested in hosting the exhibit and benefiting from their free, non-commercial educational program promoting cord blood awareness.
