This August, the Ezer Mizion Bone Marrow Registry reached an amazing milestone: 2,000 IDF soldiers have donated their stem cells to 2,000 patients around the world!
That’s 2000 Jewish lives saved, 2000 families who have remained whole!
These incredible heroes not only protect the State of Israel, but have also answered the call to save the lives of people from around the world whose sole chance of survival had been a stem cell transplant!
It is you, our invaluable friends and supporters, who have enabled Ezer Mizion to reach this milestone.
Some of our heroes with the one whose life he had saved.
To promote the growth of the Registry, Ezer Mizion in Israel signed an agreement with the IDF (Israel Defense Force) in 2005 where Ezer Mizion’s Registry will tissue type army recruits upon their induction into the Israeli army at age 18 and include them in our Donor Registry. Due to the wide range of ethnic groups found in the IDF and to the young age and good health of the recruits, this collaboration has brought about a vast increase in matches between potential bone marrow donors and cancer patients in need of a transplant, thus saving the lives of Jews throughout the world.
