Dying fashion model begs potential saviour for stem cell donation

Dying fashion model begs potential saviour for stem cell donation

By The Nation

 

The family of a fashion model, who is dying of leukemia, made a Facebook post on Saturday begging a possible donor match to change his mind and donate his stem cells to save the model’s life.

 

The family made the plea on the Facebook wall of the model, Pramthat “Pram” Sinkang.

 

The post said doctors have told the model that he could live no longer than six months if no stem-cell donor match was found.

 

The post said Pramthat had earlier received chemotherapy and after becoming stronger thought his leukemia had been beaten. But his doctor on July 23 told Pramthat that his cancer had worsened and chemotherapy was no longer an option.

 

The post said doctors told the model that a stem-cell implant was now the only treatment that might cure him.

 

The family said the model could not find a new donor match after doctors first identified one in February, but that prospective donor had later changed his mind. 

 

“He changed his mind because his family did not allow it,” Pram’s family explained in the post.

 

“I don’t know who you are but if you see this message, our family would like to beg you to change your mind and donate the stem cells to Pram. It’s hard to find someone to save Pram right now,” they said to the potential donor.

Because pretty and rich people are worth more in Thailand.

 

I would be less inclined to help (if i could) because she is a fashion model. Sounds like a occupation with people being paid to look pretty and behaving like arrogant <deleted>.

Stem cells are now fashionable who would have thought.

But not perhaps sufficient reason to deny someone a chance to live?

I hope the donor will come back to his right mind - donating stem-cells is a kids game, will not hurt or have any negative effect to the donor. Un-believable how anybody, who has the suitable cells does reject this plead to have a chance to survive.

Perception is a very strong emotion in people. as you can see from some people already make up their mind he is not worthy. If it was a cute little kid, I think more people would help?

If only there was some database of donors, in order to find out a more suitable one, then perhaps need some more specific testing.

 

I've mentioned this before regarding organ donation. Trying to donate your body here requires the donor to organise in advance for someone to take the body to a hospital willing to accept them.

In my case I'd need my body taken 100km - and that is just to donate my body to medical science, not even to donate any organs for transplant.

The way I see it, once I'm dead, someone may just as well have the use of my body for something useful, medical students practising on it seems reasonable.

My wife is dead against it (so to speak), but it seems to me  a better use of a lump of flesh.

As such a magnanimous person are you volunteering to see if you're a match or are you just having a go at one person who did but whose family wouldn't permit it?

What is the procedure to harvest stem cells ?  Is it as easy as donating sperm ? I'm not shaming anyone if it is painful or dangerous, any cutting in  Thailand is dangerous.

Because nobody would give stem cells to a common somchai. The modern day media heros are the ones getting all the goodies.
