The Australian Red Cross Blood Service has urged those with the O-Negative blood type to follow Camden resident Roxanne Clarke’s lead androll up their sleeves.

Cold and flu symptoms have wiped out about 1000 donors a day, leaving a shortage of O-Negative supplies.

Ms Clarke first began to donate about three years ago.

Last week, she was back again at the mobile blood bank set up in the Bunnings car park at Campbelltown.

She said it was never too late to give blood.

“I’m a latestarter really,” she said.

“Mysister had been doing it (donating blood) for a while so Idecided to goalong with her.

“Ihad no idea what blood type Iwas at the time but they said I was O-Negative.

“That’sa good one because they can use it to help a lot of people.

“If you are O-Negative it’s the best one because everyone can use it.

“I was told it’sgold.”

Australian Red Cross Blood Service spokesman Shaun Inguanzo stressed the need for more O-Negative donors to give blood

“O-Negative is the universal type given to patients in emergency situations, when their blood type is unknown.Australian patients need around 500 O-Negative donations a day to survive these situations,” he said.

“The number of people suffering cold and flu symptoms increases, limiting the number of regular donors who are able to give.

“Around the country, we are seeing as many as 1000 people cancel their appointments every day –almost half of them due to illness.

“We need others – in this case people with O-Negative blood – to take the place of those who have cold or flu symptoms.

“With one in three of us needing donated blood in our lifetime the life you save could be that of a friend or family member.”
