"We've got an exciting story to tell, and we're pleased that the selection process has produced a public relations team that can articulate our message to the media, the role that Cord Blood America -- www.CordBlood-America.com -- is playing in preserving umbilical cord blood for the exclusive future use of donating families," says Schissler, referring to the soaring growth in umbilical cord stem cell preservation.
