Weight loss clears way for blood donor

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

Pan Weizhong, 39, lost 11 kg over two months to be el­i­gi­ble to do­nate stem cells to a stranger from He­nan prov­ince who suf­fered from aplas­tic ane­mia, Wuhan Morn­ing News re­ported on Thurs­day. Pan reg­is­tered as a blood donor with the China Bone Mar­row Bank in March 2007 and was told in Oc­to­ber 2013 that his stem cells matched a 28-year-old ane­mic woman, Han Guilin. Pan, how­ever, needed to lose weight to meet the do­na­tion re­quire­ments.
