Anyone with friends in Mexico, please read !

I know this is a long shot, but...

A guy I went to school with, Phil Pain, fell from a 7th floor balcony the other day and is currently in a critical condition with a broken lower back, broken legs and crushed internal organs. He's in desperate need of blood transfusions which the hospital just doesn't have currently. Even worse is the fact that this happened during his study abroad year in Mexico. Add to the fact that his blood is the rare O- type, (even rarer in Latin America so I'm told) and the situation sounds pretty desperate. Due to some red tape which I don't quite understand, it seems only Mexican donations will do, so please if you have any Mexican contacts, alert them.

If you know any Mexicans or anyone currently in Mexico, please could you pass this on, or join the facebook group or alert people on twitter. Who knows what random action might prompt someone in Mexico to donate blood.

Please spread the appeal and join the facebook groups here:

O- ......... type

Not O-Type

Though it seems kind of a petty thing to argue the toss over, to be quite honest. =/

Fair enough.

Though in terms of the context of the situation, I don't think it really needs to be clear. Not really a "lol" matter, as far as I'm concerned, but each to their own... certainly wouldn't want to offend anyone.
