Walski got this in the mail moments ago. Although he's on the road, it's something worth posting. Hopefully you A-Negative types read this. And there's not much time to act.
Type A-Negative blood urgently needed!

There is a patient at Subang Jaya Medical Center (SJMC) who is about to undergo a heart bypass this coming Tuesday, June 12, 2007, and needs about 8 pints of blood. The blood bank doesn't stock this variety of blood, hence the need for fresh donations. So far, only 2 pints have been donated, and more is needed.
The patient's name is Lachamanan Vasudevan (MR No. 340577).
If anyone reading this has A-Negative type blood, and would like to donate, please contact the SJMC Blood Bank at (03) 5630-6575. You'll need to mention the patient's details as stated above when contacting SJMC. Alternatively, you can call the patient's wife [Susan Yong @ (017) 362-4843].
Screening for CABG Donors (and donations) is done at the SJMC Blood Bank, located at the 5th Floor of the SJMC Outpatient Center. It's open weekdays from 0830 to 1730 hrs (also during lunch time).
Walski has it on good authority that this is indeed a genuine request, and hopes that anyone out there who can donate to do so ASAP. And if you can't, but know of someone who is type A-Negative, kindly pass the word along.
It's the small things you do that sometimes make a world of difference for those in dire need.... and a mere pint goes a long way in this case.
