    Joe Gomez needs blood O negative

    I got an email from an old forum member, ... he told me that another old friend of ours (at least known to some of you) will be needing blood for a brain operation. The patient is Joe Gomez and he has a brain tumour. He is also of blood type O negative which is rare. His op will probably be on this Friday at the Assunta hospital. I was told that since this is a rare blood type, it is not stored and I am waiting for more information by Wednesday as to when the hospital will be ready to take donations for O negative blood, once the date of the operation is confirmed.

    I received the following in my email today, sender's identity intentionally excluded.

    I am O Negative but I am not sure if I can donate. If there is no other donor,
    do email me and see if I can help.


    Chang, please call me if this donor's offer is needed. If you have deleted my number, please get it from PC.

    One more O negative donor found

    I have received another response to appeal for O -ve blood for Joe Gomez:


    I received your mail via a chain of a few people and have just read through the forum.

    Iím writing on behalf of my wife who is O neg blood group but canít access the forum at work.
    I have checked the forum but donít see any info about when itís possible to donate the blood.
    Please could you provide details of where and when.

    If I understand, Joeís op is on the 31st March. When would blood need to be donated to be available for use in the operation?

    My wife and me are available on Friday evening or Sat morning.

    She is O neg, 58kg, at the end stages of breast feeding (minimal feeds now).

    Please advise if you are able to or provide any contacts that can.

    I have registered on the forum but not received the confirmation from Administrator yet.




    May God bless all these kind people abundantly.

    Thank you for the offers of blood donation.
    So far I have not gotten any message from Aroki regarding the operation of Joe.
    I will post it here once I get any message.

    For privacy, you may send me your contact number / email address through my PM in this forum

    Please read my post here

    Donors for O negative blood should go to Assunta's blood bank.
    Joe's operation is at 9am on Friday tomorrow.

    Just got a call from Mrs. Gomez that Joe is going in today at 3pm for another operation, probably to install a shunt in his brain to release excessive fluid buildup in his brain. His previous operation used up 4 pints of O negative but it seems there were no donors who went to donate for Joe Gomez. Anyone wishing to do so, please go to Assunta PJ and say the donation is for Joe Gomez.
    FYI, the blood bank in Assunta is open from
    Mon-Fri ... 9am-5pm
    Wed is longer ... 9am - 7pm
    Saturdays .. 9am-3:30pm

    If the blood type is common (eg. O+, A+, B+), then you replenish with other blood types.

    But all -ve blood are considered rare, if they don't have any more O- blood in the blood bank, how are they gonna give the patients ?

    AB- is the rarest.

    I always thought that blood that was donated has a self life?

    Yes, that's why you can't donate some now to save for future own use.

    Whole Blood (the usual collected) and RBC (red blood cells) are both kept refrigerated at 1-6 C, with maximum shelf lives of 35 and 42 days respectively with preservatives. Platelets about 3 - 5 days inclusive of testing.

    This is not the issue here ... our friend Joe has already taken 4 pints of blood. As far as I was told, there were no donors for him. All Assunta was asking was a replacement. Let us not be so picky ... there are obviously other O neg who will need it one day. If you decide to go, please say it is for Joe Gomez, so they have a proper record
