Stem Cell Awareness Day

6th October 2014

Stem Cell Awareness Day Martin Tina's brother

A topic close to home for Tina is Stem Cell Research - and with it being Stem Cell Awareness Day today, Tina explained why it is so important to her and her family.

Clearly, if you'd like to know more, then it's best to do some research and talk to the medical experts.

The UK Stem Cell Foundation is a source of information and if you want to know more about storing baby cord blood, then do your research online and ask your medical practictioner and midwifery staffs.

Also, you can donate your placenta cord blood for medical research to organisations such as the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust. There are only a few hospitals that do this...and none are in Cornwall.

New Ideas for Re-Branding October

And Neil had some ideas about how the month of October could be re-branded ...


If Woktober, Doctober and Frocktober don't catch on...

... here were some ideas from listeners:

  • Young 8 year old Ben suggested Soctober - don't buy any more socks.  
  • Anna wanted a Rocktober - play a rock tune after 8am everyday. 
  • Peacetober - strive for world peace.
  • Goktober - don't watch Gok Wan for the month!

More fun, entertainment, information and nonsense tomorrow.
