This Guy's Got Blood, and Heart -- At 320 and Counting, Al Fischer Sets Record for Blood Donations
Date:8/31/2009

atient population, but his "Code 96" rarity is considered the "needle in a haystack" as far as blood donors go: because his red cells lack a combination of antigens, Albert's blood is ideal for transplant patients and chronically transfused individuals who may otherwise reject more common blood.

On September 8, Albert Fischer will give blood with the "Golden Donors," a group of committed volunteer retirees, at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY, where donors and their guests are treated to live entertainment. Additional Golden Donors blood drives will be held simultaneously between the hours of 8:30 AM and 2:00 PM at the Bohemia, Lake Success and Rockville Centre Donor Centers. Albert Fischer's commitment to donating blood and the dedication of the Golden Donors group set a steadfast example for others. Approximately 45 percent of patients transfused are over the age of 65. The median age for blood transfusions is 69. Most adults receive two units.

To those with reservations about giving blood, Albert Fischer asks, "What if it was for your mom, or if your brother needed blood? How about a neighbor? What about mankind? Giving blood is the greatest feeling in the world."
