The parents of Charlie Harris Beard have started a petition to raise awareness of cord blood donation in an attempt to make sure others can be saved.
Two year old Charlie Harris Beard from Worcestershire, died last month from leukemia, but his life was prolonged after he received a cord donor transplant from America.
After birth, the umbilical cord is normally thrown away, as it is classed as clinical waste.
The cord blood inside though, is rich in stem cells. If collected, a woman can potentially give birth and save a life on the same day.
Charlie's dad, Joe Beard, says the transplant Charlie received prolonged his life and they now want more people to benefit.
