Urgent! AB+ blood donors needed in Atlanta!

ETA: This was post­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2009. I haven’t heard of any ongo­ing need, so I think we can assume that the lit­tle one is healthy now. Thank you for all your kind offers of help!

I just received this from Elise Witt, who received it from a fac­ul­ty friend at GSU:

Pro­fes­sor Anu Bour­geois deliv­ered a tiny lit­tle girl on Wednes­day of this week. She was born pre­ma­ture­ly at 27 weeks and is in urgent need of blood trans­fu­sions. Her blood type is AB+ and needs an exact match. Please con­tact Anu at (redact­ed) if you or any­one you know have the AB+ blood type. Please leave a mes­sage if there no answer.

Thank you.
P.S. Anu and Doug would appre­ci­ate it if you would broad­cast this mes­sage to your co-work­ers, friends and fam­i­ly mem­bers.

    My 14-year-old daugh­ter, Deb­bie has blood type AB+ and also has a heart of gold. She is nee­dle pho­bic, but would prob­a­bly do any­thing to save a help­less baby. You can call her at: XXX-XXX-XXXX if you would like to ask her. I have already gave her the heads up that you might call her. She is over­weight and bi-polar, and gets picked on mer­ci­less­ly!!! She does any­thing to help oth­ers because accep­tance and praise. I already asked her and she said, “absolute­ly!” That’s my Deb­bie!!!!!

    Thank you Mike, but I don’t think that will be nec­es­sary. The post was made 2.5 months ago. I haven’t heard any­thing about the baby since, but I think it’s a “no news is good news” sit­u­a­tion.

    Since tech­nol­o­gy has devel­oped in the med­ical field as well, I rec­om­mend all new par­ent a cord blood bank. Stem cells can real­ly help in the future and you nev­er know when your kid will need those. It ain’t expen­sive and it can save lives.
