Blood donors needed for a little boy

I know this is not directly moto related, but it would be appreciated if it could stay where most people could see it.. Luca Campana is a little boy with leukemia being treated at Texas Children's. His CaringBridge page is at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lucacampana.

He will be undergoing plasma exchange beginning Friday and having surgery Monday, and really needs direct donations of plasma and platelets. Please contact Steve at stevewmyers@att.net if you meet the criteria below so that he could get you into the rotation at the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. I don't qualify but I will donate and put him as the beneficiary so that he would get credit for other whole unit donations that do meet his criteria.

To donate plasma, you can be any blood type, but need to be male or a female who has never been pregnant. He also needs platelet donors. Luca does much better when he received directed donations, and the current donors have bled all they can bleed. You must be RH -, so A, B, AB, or O- to donate platelets, and willing to give once a week, or at least every other week.

Luca will be getting lots of platelet transfusions this weekend to get him ready for the surgery Monday, so we need folks to donate now if you can. Please email Steve and let him know if you can help Luca: stevewmyers@att.net.

To direct a donation you just need to tell them it is for:

Luca Campana
Born 6/15/05
Treated at Texas Children’s Hospital

Please share this with your friends, family and colleagues in Houston if you can. Thank you all!

Yuliya

I just donated double reds and they told me I cant donate again until November. I don't remember them saying anything about plasma. Do you know if I would be able to donate plasma?

I'm pretty sure they are, i don't recollect a ? on the questioaire that ask if you do either.

and when you finish they tell you not to smoke or drink for a while.

i bet they don't want no alky's blood, but if you're a casual drinker, no biggie.

main thing that will disqualify people here are tatts jail and ghey ........

Its not as bad because you don't lose very much of the hemoglobin.

You may feel weak until you get your volume back up and your salts balanced again. Drink a lot of water, take a multi-vitamin and get an extra hour of sleep and you should be good to go.

Of course each person is different so you should probably play it safe the first time through and plan accordingly.
