Blood Donation Camps

A Blood Donation occurs when a person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions or made into medications by a process called fractionation. In the developed world, most blood donors are unpaid volunteers (voluntary non remunerated repeat donations, VNRD) who give blood for a community supply. In poorer countries, established supplies are limited and donors usually give blood when family or friends need a transfusion. Many donors donate as an act of charity, but some are paid and in some cases there are incentives other than money such as paid time off from work. Donors can also have blood drawn for their own future use. Donating is relatively safe, but some donors have bruising where the needle is inserted or may feel faint.

Potential donors are evaluated for anything that might make their blood unsafe to use. The screening includes testing for diseases that can be transmitted by a blood transfusion, including HIV and viral hepatitis. The donor must also answer questions about medical history and take a short physical examination to make sure the donation is not hazardous to his or her health. How often a donor can give varies from days to months based on what he or she donates and the laws of the country where the donation takes place. For example in the United States, donors must wait eight weeks (56 days) between whole blood donations but only three days between platelet pheresis donations.

The amount of blood drawn and the methods vary. The collection can be done manually or with automated equipment that only takes specific portions of the blood. Most of the components of blood used for transfusions have a short shelf life, and maintaining a constant supply is a persistent problem.

Blood Donation Camp
The common but baseless belief among public is that blood donated is blood lost. MFCT creates awareness for blood donation including in rural areas and educating them that blood is God’s gift to mankind and by donating the same it is not lost but recoups in three months. It is the vital fluid for human existence and it requires to be made available immediately when needed. Recognizing the importance, MFCT organizes frequent Blood Donation Camps annually.

Blood Donors are given donation cards and certificates by the Blood Banks who are invited by us to collect the Blood. The blood so collected is donated to the Blood Bank maintained by various hospitals we give it to Tata Hospital for Cancer Patients, who are needy, poor and economically backward to take blood from outside, Navi Mumbai Muncipal Corporation, MGM Hospital etc. All blood collected is given to this hospitals with special instructions that this blood should be given to Cancer Patients and transfusion purpose only.

Cancer Symptoms:

Cancer kænsər, known medically as a malignant neoplasm, is a broad group of various diseases, all involving unregulated cell growth. In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumors, and invade nearby parts of the body. The cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream. Not all tumors are cancerous. Benign tumors do not grow uncontrollably, do not invade neighboring tissues, and do not spread throughout the body. There are over 200 different known cancers that afflict humans.

Determining what causes cancer is complex. Many things are known to increase the risk of cancer, including tobacco use, certain infections, radiation, lack of physical activity, obesity, and environmental pollutants. These can directly damage genes or combine with existing genetic faults within cells to cause the disease. Approximately five to ten percent of cancers are entirely hereditary.

Cancer can be detected in a number of ways, including the presence of certain signs and symptoms, screening tests, or medical imaging. Once a possible cancer is detected it is diagnosed by microscopic examination of a tissue sample. Cancer is usually treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. The chances of surviving the disease vary greatly by the type and location of the cancer and the extent of disease at the start of treatment. While cancer can affect people of all ages, and a few types of cancer are more common in children, the risk of developing cancer generally increases with age. In 2007, cancer caused about 13% of all human deaths worldwide (7.9 million). Rates are rising as more people live to an old age and as mass lifestyle changes occur in the developing world.

Cancer symptoms are changes in the body caused by the presence of cancer. They are usually caused by the effect of a cancer on the part of the body where it is growing, although the disease can cause more general symptoms such as weight loss or tiredness. It is advisable that anyone experiencing unusual symptoms that are not normal for them for more than a few weeks should seek medical attention.

There are more than 200 different types of cancer with a wide range of different signs and symptoms, making it difficult to produce a definitive list. For information about the specific signs and symptoms of a specific type of cancer, please see the Wikipedia entry for that disease.

Typical symptoms of cancer include:

  • The presence of an unusual lump in the body.
  • Changes in a mole on the skin.
  • A persistent cough or hoarseness.
  • A change in bowel habits, such as unusual diarrhea or constipation.
  • Difficulty in swallowing or continuing indigestion.
  • Any abnormal bleeding, including bleeding from the vagina, or blood in urine or faces.
  • A persistent sore or ulcer.
  • Difficulty passing urine.
  • Unexplained weight loss.
  • Unexplained pain.
  • Unexplained tiredness or fatigue.
  • Skin changes such as an unexplained rash or unusual texture.
  • Unexplained night sweats.
