OneBlood, a Florida-based nonprofit, is seeking potential donors for Zainab, who is battling neuroblastoma and whose blood is missing a common antigen, called Indian B. If Zainab receives blood with this antigen, her body will reject it, according to OneBlood.
While three donors have been found, OneBloodsaid they are looking for seven to 10 more compatible donors since the little girl will need blood transfusions for the foreseeable future. The donors need to be a Pakistani, Indian or Iranian, which means that their biological parents would be 100 percent Pakistani, Indian or Iranian.
"Locating people who are missing the Indian B antigen comes down to genetics", said a release from OneBlood.
The tumor inside Zainab Mughal's belly may have been growing for 10 months without anyone knowing.
Now, her parents are pleading for anyone who believes they may be a match for their daughter to come forward and donate before it's too late. "We are searching the world to try to find blood for this little girl".
But of those, only three donors have her rare blood type - including one in London. "This was the worst thing we were expecting".
Neuroblastoma most often occurs in infants and young children, and accounts for about 6 percent of all cancers in children.
Dr Bright further explained, "She's going to need to be completely supported by blood donations in order to survive the cancer treatment in order to kill this cancer".
The cancer can spread to tissues beyond the original site, including bone marrow, bone, lymph nodes, liver and skin. According to the American Cancer Society, there are about 800 new cases of neuroblastoma diagnosed each year.
The organization said statistics show the only people who are likely to be a match for her are people of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent.
Are you a match for Zainab's blood type?
"My daughter, she is still a long way away from being ideal", said Raheel Mughal, Zainab's father.
A worldwide search is underway for what OneBlood is calling some of the rarest blood in the world.
"My daughter's life very much depends on the blood", Mughal said, describing the plea for help as a "humble request" from his heart. So, please, donate the blood for my daughter'. Donors also must coordinate with OneBlood, so their sample is tested for compatibility.
