Chen told reporters that he is from Putian Hanjiang, 22 years old, a senior student from College of Materials and Engineering ofFujian Agriculture and Forestry University. In October 2015, as soon as he entered the university, he volunteered to join the Chinese hematopoietic stem cell donor database under the publicity of the university's League of Red Cross Societies. In September 2017, when Chen received a call from the Red Cross Society, he was so nervous and excited that he agreed to donate without hesitation.

When I knew I was going to donate, I was so excited that I talked to my friends about donating hematopoietic stem cells. XiayuChen said. Then the patient's condition changes, delayingof match, there was no news all the time, he had a bit disappointment and thought it wasn't his destiny to do this. In January, he got another call from the provincial Red Cross because the patient was suitable for a transplant. As if chosen by my fate. said by Chen. He immediately promised to donate, the experts determined that the donation was eligibleafter the physical examination before donation.

Red Cross personnel escorted him to the airportto Nanningimmediately

On March 8, accompanied by the staff of the provincial and municipal Red Cross Societies, XiayuChen was admitted to the hospital where she signed a voluntary consent to donate hematopoietic stem cells and received a 4-day mobilization agent injection.

At 8 o 'clock yesterday morning, on the hospital hematology hospital bed,XiayuChen formally began to collect hematopoietic stem cells.

Four hours later, the hematopoietic stem cell collection was completed. The number of cells was analyzed and tested by the hospital, and the 192 ml of blood donated by Xiayu Chen was confirmed to meet the needs of the patient. Red Cross staff escorted the seeds of life, immediately rushed to the airport to Nanning and send themto the patient's hospital. These hematopoietic stem cells are not only kept in a 4-degree incubator, but they are also needed to kept alive by shaking every half hour.

He hopedthat it can inspire more people to donate hematopoietic stem cells

I learned a lot about donation through the Red Cross on campus. Chen told the reporter. Although his parents were worried at the beginning, after his communication with his parents, they also expressed their support and told him to have a good rest after they learned that the donation of hematopoietic stem cells could save lives and would not cause harm to the body.

Yesterday, YingTang, a student from FujianAgriculture and Forestry University who had successfully donated hematopoietic stem cells, also came to the hospital to teach him the experience and calm his nervous and excited mood. Chen's classmates and counselors were also at the scene to cheer for him. Chen said that although he and the patient had never met, the blood linked them together and it is a blessing to be able to save a life.I hope that through my donation, more students can join the ranks of donating hematopoietic stem cells and contribute to saving the lives of patients. he said.

   College students are highly motivated and cooperative in donating, which plays an irreplaceable role in many public welfare undertakings. said by JingminHu, vice President of fuzhou Red Cross society. In recent years, the Red Cross Society has carried out a lot of publicity on blood donation and hematopoietic stem cell donation, especially for the students in the university community. Each university in Fuzhou has set up a Red Cross grass-roots organization to publicize the knowledge of humanity and aid.
