It Takes a Village to Raise a Child
It Takes an Army to Save One
Ezer Mizion’s bone marrow donor registry was established to enrich the international pool with potential donors for underrepresented individuals. Driven by the understanding that matches are likely of a similar background, Ezer Mizion is a lifesaving resource when stem cell donors are needed by cancer patients worldwide.
The Ezer Mizion International Bone Marrow Registry is the 5TH LARGEST REGISTRY IN THE WORLD with 1,150,000 members. OUR REGISTRY HAS FACILITATED ALMOST 5,000 LIFESAVING STEM CELL TRANSPLANTS IN 47 COUNTRIES, AND IS NOW AVERAGING 40 LIVES SAVED EVERY MONTH.
Before the registry’s inception, the chance of a Jewish patient receiving a bone marrow transplant was 7%; however, today THE CHANCE OF RECEIVING A MATCH HAS INCREASED TO 78%.
Ezer Mizion’s unique collaboration with the Israeli army, enables IDF recruits to join the registry upon their enlistment, bringing in about 55,000 young and healthy potential donors every year. More than 60% of lives saved are by soldiers from the IDF.
For every $500 donated, you will receive a ticket for our draw: 2 tickets to Israel, 3 nights in a hotel, a one day IDF experience, and a tour of Ezer Mizion.
*Sponsoring at these levels includes a Personalized Donor Pool of your own.
All donations to this campaign that are not designated to a private donor pool, will become part of the Special Forces Donor Pool. Each time a registrant from the Special Forces donor pool donates life-saving marrow, you will be notified that you yourself saved a life!
*A “Personalized Donor Pool” is a unique opportunity for an individual or group to sponsor the DNA testing of a segment of Ezer Mizion’s Registry. As a sponsor at this level, you can name your pool in honor or in memory of a loved one. You can then look forward to the gratification of receiving personal notifications in detail each time a registrant from your pool donates life-saving marrow. One cannot imagine a greater joy than hearing the words: You have saved a life!
