In July, the Carolinas Cord Blood Bank (CCBB), a not-for-profit public cord blood bank, celebrated 15 years of collecting cord blood donations at N.C. Women's Hospital.

In that time, CCBB has been able to bank 2,916 cord blood units from UNC, and 176 units from UNC have been used in transplants.

CCBB representatives visited the hospital's labor and delivery staff July 30 to celebrate the milestone in appreciation for the staff's help over the past 15 years.

CCBB is one of the largest and most respected cord blood banks in the world. The CCBB collects, processes, tests, stores and releases donated cord blood units to patients in need of a hematopoietic stem cell transplant.
