I am a student from UMS. We will have a Thalassemia Campaign and Blood Donation at UMS library foyer next Wednesday. Non UMS students are also welcome to our event.
Date: 28th November 2012 (Wednesday)
Time: 8.30am - 4.30 pm
Venue: UMS Library Foyer
Thalassaemia is an inherited blood disease transmitted by a gene. Thalassaemia major is a severe form of anemia. Those Thalassaemia major require regular blood tranfusion, about once a month, throughout their lives. In Sabah, they seldom live beyond their teens. A simple blood test can determine whether you have Thalassaemia trait. Thalassaemia cases in Sabah are much higher than other states in Malaysia.
Blood transfusion is the main stay of care for individuals with thalassemia major and many with inter
media. The purpose of transfusion is twofold: to improve the anemia and to suppress the ineffective erythropoiesis. Every three seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion. Donating blood is the most precious gift of life that you can ever give to someone.
We hope to get more support from you guys, both from UMS and not from UMS, for this meaningful campaign. Feel free to drop by for further understanding of Thalassaemia and blood donation. Complimentary foods and drinks would be provided for every donor.
