Chan Lu

Cord Blood Donor

As a mother, Chan knows all about the miracle of life, but as a registered nurse, she also knows that a baby’s umbilical cord is rich with bloodforming cells that can help save a life. Chan works in the labour and delivery department at the Alberta Health Services’ Lois Hole Hospital for Women in Edmonton. Typical of her caring nature, when her own child was born, she gladly donated her baby’s cord to Canadian Blood Services’ Cord Blood Bank, for use by any patient in need. Since returning from maternity leave, Chan continues to actively recruit new mothers for the program. She also encourages other nurses and staff within the hospital to recruit for the Cord Blood Bank as well.
