Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre & Research Institute Organized Crisis Blood Donation in Kolkata
News Desk, News Nation 360 : In these moments of crisis, God has revealed himself/ herself in different forms before us. In response to my Appeal in a social media (Facebook), one of their Nurses, Moumita Dey donated SDP for a patient she was looking after. Their patient Bhobotosh Bhowmick (age 76), was admitted in the hospital with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) with very low Platelet count. The social media post alerted a group of individuals who work with Project Life Force Mobile Van. One of their members donated SDP for Sonu Kumar, a 13 years old patient from Jharkhand, suffering from ALL (Acute Lymphatic Leukaemia), who was having bleeding from his nose for very low Platelet. His family members could not come to help him for the lockdown. Kalyan Das, Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre & Research Institute, Thakurpukur's Blood Bank Quality Control Manager, donated SDP (Single Donor Platelets) for our patient, Priyanka Mahato, 2 years 8 months old girl suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) needing platelets urgently. He could not see the plight of her grandmother who was pleading for platelets for her, while her parents were stuck looking after her siblings at home. Earlier myself, Hospital's Medical Superintendant Dr Partha Halder and many other members of Management along with Staff and some family members had donated blood for the patients. There has been a huge shortage of Blood at all Blood Banks in the city, including the hospital, Saroj
