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’s no answer.
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, Jennifer–and please pass that along to Debbie. She sounds like an angel 🙂
I edited your comment to remove the phone number, to protect your and Debbie. Take care!

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.
