One of our own needs our help. NorCalChris

Socal friends, one of our own is in need of white blood cell donations. NorCalChris has been in the hospital off and on for the last few months. Read his Facebook post below.


Los Angeles friends. I am in need of help. I need people willing to donate white blood cells @ UCLA Ronald Reagan. Im starting a new treatment and we need a supply. Blood type not important. The white blood cells will be given to me to temporarily boost my immune system and help fight off the infections I have. Once said infections are gone I can start Chemotherapy and get my bone marrow transplant. Which is the one treatment that is going to save my life. You will be screened by the docs. Come 1 day to get a shot that boosts you immune system. Next day you return to donate the blood.

Its an interesting request, but it's one that has real life benefits and can help save my life.

Anyone who is interested, please message me if you want to keep your privacy. I love you all and hope everyone had a great Christmas

Is there a specific department to contact? Is there a telephone number we should call? Post up the details or PM me if you don’t want the specifics out there.

I’ll donate if the anticoagulant I take daily doesn’t disqualify me.

Contact Chris via Facebook, and give him your number, he will then get someone to contact you. I am going in for my screening today.

Re: One of our own needs our help. NorCalChris

Hey All, so I guess I was the first person to give a blood sample to see if I am a white cell candidate. This is a life or death kind of situation. Chris has little to no immune system at this point, and what he does have is attacking his bone marrow.
He needs white blood cells to help with the kemo he needs to go through. The process isnít too hard to this point. I gave Chris my info, they called me back in a couple days and asked the typical medical questions, this morning they asked if I could give a blood sample (7 vials), then I went over to the hospital and talked with Chris for an hour or so.
They said they will call me with in the week to see if I am eligible to donate.
Then I will schedule and donate if I can.

Send Chris Divine a text and he will get you on the list, then the docs will contact you.

Cell: 805dash720dash6085

He is not checking his PMs

I sent a text to his cell number. I still have this lingering cough from the pneumonia I go on Halloween but I should be pathogen free.

We had a short conversation by text December 30, but I haven’t heard back or gotten any instructions about who I should contact at UCLA med center. I’m still available and willing to help if needed.

Give him a shout out, they will test your blood at the first visit Peter. I think they still need one or two more. I just donated again this morning, for a total of 3 pints of WB cells.
