The subject of the nightmare, three-year-old Hadas herself, was unaware the time that her young life was in danger. Only a bone marrow transplant could save her. The search was on for a matching DNA and Ezer Mizion, the largest Jewish registry in the world, was contacted. The family held their collective breath as Ezer Mizion’s vast database was searched. And then the phone rang. Trembling, they lifted the receiver. Continue reading Closing the Circle
