Over the last two years, Pini Doron had plenty of time to think about the anonymous donor whose bone marrow donation saved his life.
Last week, the two were finally able to meet, and Pini and his family had the chance to personally thank Elad Levi, 35, from Tel-Aviv, the man who – with minimal effort – was privileged to give life to a husband, father, and grandfather Pini Doron. Continue reading Who Are You?
British Café Club seniors were treated to a special aerobic activity that was both enjoyable and provided a positive release. The unique activity, “Laughing Drums,” combined laughing yoga with “Drums Alive.” Under the direction of Tzippy Dagan, the amused participants let out their energy on huge rubber balls. Continue reading “Laughing Drums” for Purim
Ezer Mizion’s Bone Marrow Donor Registry is coordinating a donor recruitment drive in an attempt to find a matching stem cell donor. The bone marrow drive will take place on Wednesday Feb. 20th at the Art School in Kiryat Ha’umanim, 31 Uzi Chitman St., Ramleh, between 5 and 8 PM. All you need to join is to give a simple saliva sample, at no cost.
Pure and simple. Straight from the heart. Ten year old David reached for his bag eagerly. It was only a simple cellophane bag, empty at that, but it was important to him. It was his means of giving and David had already learned the joy of bringing happiness to another. “Sure I’m looking forward to a lot of nosh this Purim but this is different. In a way, it’s more fun than getting a bagful of goodies. I don’t know how to explain it but you know what I mean, don’t you?” Continue reading Straight from the Heart
To the wonderful volunteers of Ezer Mizion,
It is so fantastic that when a person is in distress, there are wonderful people who understand him, understand his needs
and his difficulties, and care about him. . . .
In honor of Tu B’Shevat, Ezer Mizion held a number of special parties in different hospital wards across the country.
True, the patients could not go outside to plant saplings. But instead, we brought the delights of nature right into the hospital ward!

Snow is a way of life for many people. Only a few inches? Ho hum. But in Israel it is a momentous event with schools closing and roads closed for even a relatively small amount of snow.
For children, it is the ultimate delight. Even parents join them in their frolicking. But the disabled who has an important doctor’s appointment, the dialysis patient who is due at the clinic that day, the frail, elderly holocaust survivor who needs to see his physician today—they are helpless without the assistance of Ezer Mizion’s Ambulance Division.

Those that claim that technology has replaced normal conversation may have a valid claim.
Facebook has virtually replaced the homey kitchen chat. An email is so much more convenient than a phone call. All that may be true but what if a mother of toddlers is incapable of that heart to heart talk in a neighbor’s kitchen. What if a more-than-average intelligent young man is incapable of doing more than sitting quietly during a family discussion. He has so many thoughts. So many opinions. And they just run around and around his head with no place to go. Why? Because he cannot speak. Continue reading Giving a Voice to Those who Cannot Speak: Touch Chat
What do cooking and cancer have in common?
Not much but at Ezer Mizion, anything that will bring pleasure to those dealing with cancer is incorporated into its program. Continue reading A Taste of Life
