A 28 year old Zhejiang rich woman rides 20 kilometers a day just to donate bone marrow to a 15-year-old boy

In the early morning of September 12, 2017, a 28 year old Zhejiang girl lay in bed tossing and turning, unable to sleep.

After dawn, she will go to the hospital to donate hematopoietic stem cells to save the life of a 15-year-old boy she has never met.

The girl’s name is Xu Aifei.

In May 2017, she suddenly received a call from the bone marrow bank of Zhejiang Province.

The staff of Zhejiang bone marrow bank told her that her bone marrow matched with a 15-year-old leukemia patient.

Xu Aifei was nervous and excited when she heard the news.

Although people around her didn’t understand it, she resolutely decided to donate bone marrow.

However, there are many difficulties in bone marrow donation.

Can Xu Aifei overcome all these and successfully donate bone marrow? The death of her leukemia classmate touched the girl’s heart.

Xu Aifei is from Fuyang District, Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province.

Her father is an entrepreneur.

She has lived in a carefree environment since childhood.

The life of living with dignity did not make Xu Aifei develop an arrogant and domineering character, but cultivated her soft heart.

She has been very kind since childhood.

When she sees the weak, she can’t help but surge up the desire to protect.

The kittens and dogs on the road are the objects of her protection.

Once, she learned from the Internet that children in a poor mountainous area in Sichuan couldn’t go to school because they didn’t have stationery.

Kind, she immediately purchased several large boxes of books and stationery and sent them to the children according to the donation address.

Usually, when she sees stray cats and dogs, she will carefully build a small nest for them and leave food before she can leave safely.

It is not surprising that such a girl who lives in love and actively spreads love embarks on the road of donating bone marrow.

However, the reason why Xu Aifei is keen on donating blood and bone marrow is actually something else.

When she was in primary school, one of her classmates got leukemia and had to suspend school temporarily to go to the hospital for treatment.

The classmate’s family is not rich and can’t afford the high cost of treatment.

After learning that, the school called on the whole school to donate money and materials for him.

However, it is easy to raise money, but it is even more difficult to find a matching bone marrow.

With the help of the whole school, the student raised enough money for the operation, but he died because he didn’t find a matching bone marrow.

This made Xu Aifei feel the impermanence of life for the first time.

She found that there were still things in the world that money could not buy.

After that day, Xu Aifei secretly decided to do something in the future to save those poor patients with terminal illness.

In the third year of senior high school, Xu Aifei saw the blood donation car in the blood center on the street.

She immediately went home to get her ID card and went to donate blood.

This was her first blood donation.

When she came home, Xu Aifei proudly told her father about it.

The father gave his daughter a thumbs up, affirmed her loving behavior, and took her to have a meal of maoxuewang, saying it could replenish blood.

Since then, Xu Aifei has formed the habit of regular blood donation.

She is in good health and hasn’t been in any condition for so many years.

In 2009, on the way to donate blood, Xu Aifei noticed that the staff of the Chinese bone marrow bank on the blood donation vehicle called on everyone to donate bone marrow.

The staff said that as long as a few milliliters of blood samples are collected, they can enter the Chinese bone marrow bank.

If there is a successful matching in the future, they will contact the warehouse keeper.

Xu Aifei is very excited.

If someone can match her successfully, it is also a good thing to save people’s lives.

After leaving the blood sample, Xu Aifei went home, and this “trivial matter” was soon forgotten by her.

Donate bone marrow for a 15-year-old boy on May 2, 2017, after leaving a blood sample for eight years, Xu Aifei received a call from the staff of China bone marrow bank.

“Can these match successfully? I feel very lucky.” This was the first thought that popped out of Xu Aifei’s mind.

After hanging up the phone, she searched the Internet for information on donating hematopoietic stem cells and frantically absorbed relevant knowledge.

By checking the information on the Internet, Xu Aifei learned a new field, and she also had a deeper understanding of donating hematopoietic stem cells.

In people’s previous cognition, donating bone marrow is very painful, and it often causes some physical damage to donors.

But in fact, the donation process in China has been optimized.

Medical staff generally collect hematopoietic stem cells through peripheral blood collection without extracting bone marrow.

Although this method will make donors feel uncomfortable more or less, it is not as scary as people think.

Xu Aifei thought that he was just a little uncomfortable, but leukemia people will get hope for life.

She specially asked her mother’s opinion.

Like Xu Aifei, her mother thought it was a good thing and supported Xu Aifei to donate bone marrow.

With the support of her mother, Xu Aifei had enough courage.

She dialed the China bone marrow bank to confirm the donation of bone marrow.

The staff of China bone marrow bank repeatedly confirmed Xu Aifei’s intention on the phone and gave her a lot of knowledge about bone marrow donation.

The staff said that in the past, it was often the case that donors began to swear to donate, but turned back when they came to the end.

This situation is a very heavy blow to leukemia patients.

Some donors just promised to donate bone marrow and then reneged.

This situation can be saved because the patient has not paid any price at this time.

But there are also some donors who have done high-resolution matching and physical examination, and only repent when they are about to donate.

Bone marrow donors are benefactors to leukemia patients, so they don’t have to bear all the medical expenses.

A series of costs such as high-resolution matching and physical examination cost at least thousands of yuan, which need to be borne by patients.

Once the bone marrow donor reneges, leukemia patients waste the money, and their hope of survival is likely to be dashed.

Therefore, the staff of China bone marrow bank must repeatedly confirm whether Xu Aifei is fully prepared.

Xu Aifei gave a positive answer without any hesitation..
