Another problem with O- blood donors here are that a lot are classed as too old. I know at least 2 others here in this province besides myself that have O- blood, however, as we are all around the 60 year old mark or more, I believe that we will not be accepted because of age, or previous illness. When I first came here in the late '80's, I was a regular blood donor for Silliman medical, often donating up to 4 units a year, when I was home from work, I still have my card that they issued. With such a comparatively rare group, when in an emergency where someone's life is in danger, I feel that the rules should be changed, but then I'm not doctor, so what the **** do I know. (Anyway, three of us have an agreement, if any of the others are in need of blood we will donate, to save life, despite what Silliman, the Phil Red Cross or whoever else says otherwise).
