The family of Jerry Moran, owner of Acadiana Comics and Collectibles, is asking for help. 

Moran needs surgery, but the hospital is having trouble finding the right kind of blood for him, said his wife, Theresa. 

Jerry Moran has type A positive blood, but has antigens in his blood that are difficult to match. Because of that, the more donors, the better, Theresa says. Anyone with A (positive or negative) or O blood can donate, she said.

If you can help, please contact the Our Lady of Lourdes Blood Donor Center at (337) 470-4483. The center is open weekdays from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon.

You also can donate at any local blood bank, as long as you are clear that the blood is to be used for Jerry Moran, she said.
