Search for donors of rare blood type continues to save 2-year-old girl
MIAMI -- A global search is underway for blood donors matching a two-year-old with some of the rarest blood in the world. Zainab Mughal has been battling cancer, and to survive, she's likely to need blood transfusions from seven to 10 donors. Now four have been found. Only people of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent who have the same type of blood as Zainab, whose family hails from Pakistan, are likely to match with her. Less than 4% of people in those populations may match, according to OneBlood, a South Florida nonprofit organization that's aiding in a global search to identify and recruit donors for the young girl.
