Two-time Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson Joins the Team at CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank to Help Win the Race for Life
Date:2/12/2008

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank is proud to announce that two-time defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Jimmie Johnson has joined its team. "We're honored to have this NASCAR superstar and terrific person on our team," states Dr. Edward Guindi, President and CEO of CORD:USE. Jimmie Johnson joins CORD:USE as a spokesperson to participate in its "Help Win the Race for Life(TM)" campaign.

"I'm excited about telling people the benefits of umbilical cord blood donation and cord blood stem cell treatments for people in life-or-death situations," says Johnson.

"The fact that umbilical cord blood, which is normally just thrown out after a baby's born, could be donated and used to save someone's life - that just blows me away. We've got over 75 million good-hearted NASCAR fans out there, and together we can make a real difference in CORD:USE's efforts to save lives. I support this with my whole heart, and you better believe when I'm a parent some day, it's something that I'm going to participate in first hand."

Jimmie Johnson joins other NASCAR greats Rusty Wallace and Michael Waltrip, who have played an active role in increasing public awareness of cord blood donation and the dozens of current applications utilizing cord blood stem cells in transplantation.

"They call it The Race for Life, and it's a race team I'm excited to be a part of. CORD:USE's team is made up of many of the top physicians and scientists in this important medical field, which is saving thousands of lives. You know me, every race I'm in, I want to win - and I'm especially determined to win this one," says Johnson.

Cord blood stem cells have already been used to treat more than 10,000 patients, saving thousands of people who would otherwise not have had a chance of survival. There are currently more than 70 different diseases that have been successfully treated utilizing cord blood stem cells.
