48-year-old Nantong native becomes the oldest marrow donor in Jiangsu
Nantong Net News (Reporter Wang Jinxia) In order to save the life of a dying leukemia patient, Ding Hua (above), a hematopoietic stem cell donation volunteer from Nantong, resolutely went to Nanjing to donate marrow. Yesterday, he successfully donated 160 ml of marrow, giving the seeds of life to a patient who had never met before. 48-year-old Ding Hua became the 247th case of Jiangsu, the 15th case of hematopoietic stem cell donation in Nantong, and the oldest bone marrow donor in Jiangsu.
Ding Hua is the vice president of Nantong Pangyuan Mechanical Engineering Co., Ltd. He and his lover Luo Yanhong's birthdays are in the first half and the second half of the year respectively. Every birthday, the loving couple goes to donate blood together. After the establishment of the China Bone Marrow Bank, they became the first batch of hematopoietic stem cell donation volunteers in our city.
On November 11 last year, the Municipal Red Cross Society received a notice from the Provincial Red Cross Society's Hematopoietic Stem Cell Donor Database Management Center that Ding Hua's initial HLA matching with the leukemia patients in the general pool matched. In accordance with the relevant procedures for donating marrow, the Municipal Red Cross Society contacted Ding Hua and asked him and his family for their opinions. Ding Hua carefully filled out the "Remobilization Conversation Record", "Volunteer Health Condition Consultation Form", and "Remobilization Informed Consent Form". ” and 4 copies of the “Volunteer Re-mobilization Receipt”, which were faxed to the Provincial Red Cross Society. On December 1, the Provincial Red Cross Society notified Ding Hua to conduct high-resolution testing. On December 6, the staff of the Municipal Red Cross Society accompanied Ding Hua to conduct high-resolution sampling. The blood samples were sent to Suzhou Blood Center for testing on the same day. In February this year, the Municipal Red Cross Society received a notice from the Provincial Red Cross Society and arranged for Ding Hua to undergo a comprehensive health checkup at the Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University at the end of February.
On May 2, the Municipal Red Cross Society received a notice from the Provincial Red Cross Society that Ding Hua signed the "Consent for Donation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells". Ding Hua arrived in Nanjing on May 18th, and officially embarked on the donation journey to deliver the hope of life. At Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, Ding Hua started to mobilize the mobilizer on the morning of the 19th, with one injection every morning and evening to prepare for the collection of hematopoietic stem cells 4 days later. .
When Ding Hua learned that he was the oldest bone marrow donor in Jiangsu Province so far, the question he blurted out was not "Will donating hematopoietic stem cells at this age have any effect on my body?" but "I am the oldest. Will the hematopoietic stem cells I donated not be active enough to affect the patient's recovery?" The selfless love was revealed in such casual inquiry.
Starting at 8:30 a.m. yesterday, after nearly 6 hours of collection, Ding Hua successfully donated 160 ml of hematopoietic stem cells.
During Ding Hua's donation, Meng Weihong, secretary-general of the Nantong Red Cross Society, came to Nanjing to cheer on and encourage Ding Hua, and expressed his gratitude to Ding Hua and his lover Luo Yanhong for their kind deeds on behalf of the Municipal Red Cross Society. Secretary-General Meng said that it is because of volunteers like Ding Hua that patients in desperation can see the light of the future, and every ordinary person can feel the sincere warmth. The spirit of "humanity, fraternity and dedication" of the Red Cross is precisely through the experience of every ordinary and great volunteer, which spreads love and also spreads emotion. It is believed that more and more caring people will join the caring family and send warmth and hope to more people who need care, inspired and inspired by the kindness of the volunteers.
Donate hematopoietic stem cells, draw 6 ml of blood sample and add it to the Chinese bone marrow bank. Maybe in the near future, you can save the life of a leukemia patient like Ding Hua.
