|To assist you in the donor selection process, WMDA has introduced a new service. If you need urgent help in the selection process because of problems finding a suitable and available unrelated adult stem cell donor, the WMDA has established a cord blood support team. Cord blood may be a good alternative if there are complications in the search process as cord blood is quickly available, was collected before the COVID-19 outbreak and can be shipped by cargo flights or by driver.|
