Do You Have Blood Type A+?

If you do, do a good deed and help a family out that needs some kind souls to donate some of their fairly rare A+ blood for a heart bypass operation.

The operation will take place on March 1st, 2007 (Thursday) and the surgery requires fresh blood and the surgeon has requested for at least 10 people of similar blood group (A+) to donate on the day of his surgery. We know that this is not a common blood group and we appreciate it with all our heart if you can assist us.

Below is the information you need if you wish to give blood:

  1. Blood group required : A+
  2. Name of Hospital : Subang Jaya Medical Centre (New Wing), 5th Floor
    (Blood Bank)
  3. Opening Hours : 8.30 am – 5.30 pm (Monday to Friday) (Operates during
    lunch hours) 8.30 am – 12.30 pm (Saturday)
  4. Patient’s Name : Lee Chiew
  5. Date of Surgery : March 1, 2007

Set out below are the procedures for the blood donation;

  1. The Donor has to be healthy;
  2. The potential donor is required to go to the above hospital any day before the surgery date to have his / her blood screened. Should the potential donor do not know his / her blood group, the hospital will conduct the test;
  3. If the potential donor can only attend the screening test on the weekend, he / she will need to give one day prior notice to the hospital.
  4. SJMC (Blood Bank) contact no. : 03-56306575
    Contact person : Ms Siva

  5. After having passed the screening test, the Donor will need to come to the hospital again on the Surgery date (9.00 am) for the donation.
  6. Please be informed that the hospital will issue time-off medical certificates for both the screening and donation days.

Please feel free to contact the family members should you have questions on the above. Karina (012-3930993), Kevin (012-2998769) or Adrian (012-2317912).

    Me A+, but I thought A+ is not rare and O+ can be the donor too?

    Generally A+ and O+ are the most common blood type and account for almost 70% of all blood type. The three most rare types of blood are AB- follows by B- and AB+. O-, A- and B+ account for around 23.5%.

    Having said that, East Asian have the lowest percentage of negative (-) blood. Some East Asian nation has less than 1% of their population with negative (-) blood type.

    Dear kind souls,

    Thank you for posting this up and passing on the message. My name is Adrian and I am the son of the patient.

    Saint, I do not know you but whoever you are I am very grateful to you for responding.

    My father is old and have a history of a minor stroke. The surgery is very critical and to minimise the risks, the surgeon have requested for fresh blood and of type A+ only.

    We now have 11 donors and we need another 4 to 5 more. If you are A+ and are willing, please contact Ms Siva of SJMC on 03-56306575.

    Thank you.
