Louise Lister started this petition to The NHS

I have been touched just like many others by the story of Azaylia Cains on instagram and in the news papers documented by both her parents.

I felt been pregnant here is my chance to make a small difference by donating the umbilical cord once I give birth to my little girl in May 2021. So I took sometime to look into doing this and what the benefits are. What I found was astounding how something that is so easily thrown away can make such a difference.

 

For something that is normally thrown away and disposed of to turn out to be something that could save a life I thought yes this is something I want to do for others but I was shocked to find that only 5 hospitals in the UK offer collection of the umbilical cord and these are all in London as I live in the yorkshire I’m not able to donate something that could make such a big difference in someone’s life.

So today I have decided to start this petition to campaign  to get more hospitals to offer the collection service and go forward and save more lives and do such vital research.
