Laval: A blood and plasma drive for Samy – News

For a good cause

The population is invited by the Laval Police Department to participate in a major blood and plasma drive, which will be held from November 1 to 30, 2021, in all Globule centers in Quebec.

Initiated by colleagues of Detective Lieutenant Aziz El-Fara, this collection aims to help the latter’s son, Samy, aged two and a half.

The only child in Quebec to suffer from Roifman syndrome, this extremely rare disease attacks, among other things, the immune system, bones, eyesight and motor and cognitive development.

“Samy’s life is tied to blood and plasma donors, as he has to undergo an immunoglobulin transfusion every week. Each donation makes a crucial difference for him. The needs for blood products are presently urgent at Héma-Québec, which is why we want to mobilize as many donors as possible in order to maintain the blood reserve at its optimal level. On behalf of Samy, we say thank you, ”explains Detective Sergeant Sara-Imane Chemloul, member of the organizing committee.

To participate in this collection, it is essential to reserve your time slot online at jedonne.hema-quebec.qc.ca, on the JeDonne mobile application or by phone by dialing 1 888 666-4362.
