P.O.L Umbilical Cord Blood Program:

This program provides Preserve Our Legacy the opportunity to meet personally with pregnant mothers at

hospitals and inform mothers of their options with their baby's cord blood.  The essence of donating an umbilical cord blood publically: there is no cost to the mother.  For individuals that want to keep their baby's cord blood for themselves our organization partners with private banks to provide the most beneficial option to meet their budget. Adult stem cells provide a life-saving option for various health disparities. Therefore, it is crucial to increase the available cord blood for public banks, especially, from individuals of minority backgrounds, to provide needed treatment for diseases such as leukemia and sickle cell anemia through a cord blood transplant. 


The P.O.L Umbilical Cord Blood Program historically launched at Harlem Hospital on December 21, 2010. This

program is the first of its kind in the country.  P.O.L. has also partnered with various Cord Blood storage companies to

increase awareness throughout the world.  If you are pregnant and interested in donating or privately storing your baby's cord blood, contact us via email at info@preserveourlegacy.org.

Establish Jaden’s Law throughout the world:

Jaden’s Law was created by Co-Founders, Robert and Shana Melius.  This bill would encourage doctors to promote

awareness among patients of their option to become bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donors.  On

August 25, 2010, Governor Christie historical established A2168/S2038 Jaden’s Law into New Jersey Law with his

signature. This will significantly increase percentages for minorities whom will have access for a life saving transplant,

while decreasing health disparities among minorities.
