'Man with the golden arm' James Harrison saves 2million babies in half a century of donating rare blood | Mail Online

Quote:
An Australian man who has been donating his extremely rare kind of blood for 56 years has saved the lives of more than two million babies.

James Harrison, 74, has an antibody in his plasma that stops babies dying from Rhesus disease, a form of severe anaemia.
Seriously? This guy is the fucking man. Not much point to putting this up other than the fact that I think everyone should know about him.

Yeah. You'd like to think that people would be inclined to do this without even giving it a second thought. However, lots of people avoid donating blood. Obviously there is a difference of degree when talking about a guy who has "special" blood.

Blood services can always use more blood, but sometimes they have to pull teeth to get it. If you donate once, and subsequently end up on their call list, they will call you like crazy. Apparently they have to, since so many people don't want to come down.

I agree, he should be applauded for doing what I'd consider the right thing. But I do see why Aar would just expect him to do it. People don't always do the right thing, though.

Yeah, I get called all the time (O positive), but haven't been able to donate for a year because of a trip to the Philippines, however that dude with the rare blood is quite AWESOME.

Armchair is right there are a lot of people who don't like to donate, deathly afraid of needles or something and then there are those who can't as well (people who had malaria etc.)

A few years ago I use to make extra money at Biovail over a weekend or two, but you do get poked about every hour or half-hour, but we are talking nice paycheques ($800.00 - $1,000.00, sometimes more).

I would figure a lot wouldn't.

Quick question does he give these babes blood because they are the same type?

If he saved over a million kids, and yet this blood type is still rare that clearly shows a lot these babes who survived because of his efforts are not passing it forward as they get older.
