Global blood search underway to save the life of two-year-old girl

Two-year-old cancer patient Zainab Mughal needs a rare type of blood to help cure her, which has sparked a global search to find compatible matches, reports The Washington Post.

Now, her parents are pleading for anyone who believes they may be a match for their daughter to come forward and donate before it's too late.

OneBlood is coordinating compatibility testing and asks that prospective donors specify that they are looking to donate for Zainab, so the blood can be tagged for testing.

Doctors soon learned that Zainab's red blood cells are missing a common antigen, which causes your immune system to produce antibodies, called Indian B.

Since sharing her story on their site, Zainab has luckily found three donors already, including one from the United Kingdom - the first time OneBlood has received an worldwide donor for a local patient - but she will need approximately four to six more donors in order to survive. For the majority of people, getting the blood type right is all that matters.

This is the reason why it's that much more hard to find someone else who's blood is also missing the Indian-B Antigen.

'We need to find more.It's a humble request, and I request it from my heart, ' said Raheel Mughal said in the video.

OneBlood is conducting all compatibility testing of potential donors. Still, Zainab's case is so rare that Bright - who's worked in the industry for 20 years - had to go to a textbook to learn more about it.

You can now place your order for ItalDesign's Nissan GT-R50
The production-ready model of the Nissan GT-R50 has been unveiled by the automaker and has been priced at a whopping € 990,000. Also, a revised suspension and Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes have been added.

That's a promising sign, but it's not enough.

Zainab Mughal was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in October, an aggressive cancer that often occurs in children.

It is the missing piece of a treatment plan that doctors say is already shrinking Zainab's tumor.

Only people of the same Pakistani, Indian, or Iranian descent are likely to match with the South Florida toddler, but of those populations, less than four percent of the people are missing the "Indian B" antigen, OneBlood said.

But her parents and a team of experts realize it's not over until Zainab walks out of the hospital, cancer free. A third, post-diagnosis, shows huge brown eyes beneath a bald head.

In OneBlood video, Mughal made a plea for those who can help.

"What you're doing to save a human life, to save my daughter's life, it's fantastic".
