Meet a recent bone marrow donor and get registered for a possible bone marrow match at Jewlicious Festival’s Sunday Souk. A match can mean a new lease on life for someone suffering from several fatal diseases.
The Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation was established in 1991 as a donor recruitment organization to help save the life of New Jersey leukemia patient Jay Feinberg. Between 1991-95, the organization launched an ambitious grassroots campaign to recruit donors of Eastern-European Jewish ethnicity throughout North America and abroad.
Over the course of just four years, 60,000 donors registered with the National Marrow Donor Program in the United States, as well as other national registries in Canada, Israel and many other countries through Gift of Life’s campaign.
