    There is no official maximum age for donating blood. As long as the person if fit and healthy it will be accepted as per the Red Cross guidelines which are followed here in the Philippines.
    You must be at least 17 years old to donate to the general blood supply, or 16 years old with parental/guardian consent, if allowed by state law. Learn more about the reasons for a lower age limit. There is no upper age limit for blood donation as long as you are well with no restrictions or limitations to your activities.

    I've found a donor (Jade) through dumaguete blood and passed on the details to the wife.

    I found his facebook page and his wife's google plus page but no mention on there of any calamity.

    I saw a foreign dude getting loaded into a pedicab today with a bloody leg. Motorcycle accident of course. He was wearing a helmet. I wonder if that's the guy who we are talking about. Didn't stop to gawk though, like 50 other people were doing.

    The Philippine Red Cross web site has been returning "Server Error" since yesterday but I am almost positive that I read on there that the age cut-off for donating blood is 65. The hospitals themselves have age limits, a friend tried to donate at one of the private ones in Cebu City and they told him the max age is 59; he argued to no avail. It may be wise to check with the hospital before trekking down.

    I'm now and "Old guy"...almost 81. I have A+...I had been advised I am too old to donate due to possible heart issues arising. I also told them I had dormant HepC - that in itself will not allow a donation....sorry. Don

    Thanks to everyone who came here and showed support. I am going to remove the Emergency prefix (and the personal information posted) at this time. If Horizon needs any help or donations I will revert the thread back to it's pre-moderated version. :thumbsup:
