LAS VEGAS, April 5 Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com ) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells, a biological insurance policy, to families nationwide and internationally, announced today that it is a sponsor of the 2010 Brodie Golf Classic Charity Invitational on April 19th at La Quinta County Club, California.

"John Brodie was a well known, successful quarterback with the NFL's San Francisco 49ers, a Senior PGA golf professional and an NBC broadcaster. He suffered a massive stroke in 2000. Adult stem cell treatments have dramatically improved his ability to walk and speak again. The golf classic he sponsors contributes 100 percent of the net proceeds to the New York Stem Cell Foundation, an organization dedicated to furthering the research of Stem Cell therapies in treating stroke, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and spinal cord injury. This is exactly the kind of charitable giving that Cord Blood America, as a major national and international stem cell storage company, is proud to be involved in," said Matthew Schissler, Cord Blood America co-founder and CEO.

Information about the charity classic is available at http://www.brodiegolfclassic.org, which also features an educational write-up about stem cell research. "We are pleased to be a sponsor of this event and we want to do all that we can to increase research into the numerous potential uses of stem cells to treat diseases which, up until now, have no cure and even very few effective treatments," Mr. Schissler said.
