At Gift of Life we believe every person battling blood cancer deserves a second chance at life — and we are determined to make it happen. We are singularly passionate about engaging the public to help us get everyone involved in curing blood cancer, whether as a donor, a volunteer or a financial supporter. It all begins with one remarkable person, one life-changing swab and one huge win — finding a match and a cure.

Steve is a 61-year-old loving husband, father of three, and grandfather of 2 young granddaughters. He has been a leader in the Jewish community, active in the local shul, Yeshiva day school, and Mikveh association. He is loved and respected by so many. Steve was diagnosed last summer with leukemia. The medical experts have concluded that a bone marrow transplant is the only way to cure this disease. Unable to find a full match, the transplant team decided to try with Steve’s son who was a 50% match. The donation held for 6 months, but now the leukemia has returned. The doctors believe that Steve’s best chance for defeating this disease is to find an unrelated donor match from the Jewish Ashkenazic community. Please do a great mitzvah to be tested today to see if you are a possible match that can save Steve’s life or maybe the life of someone else looking for a match.
