|To you, who with all your heart and with lots of love and good will have given me the hope of new life and health
Thanks also for the warm words in your letter, words that moved me and my family to tears.
With great joy I am letting you know that I was informed of the beginning of the transplant’s absorption and so – thanks once again!
My family and I wish you a life full of joy, success, health and happiness.
We hope that when the time comes we will be able to meet.
Until then, with all my heart,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Dear Mrs. Zisser,
Re: THANK YOU
After years of a protracted struggle against lymphoma, my remaining option was the possibility of a transplant from an unrelated donor. Thanks to you and to the remarkable enterprise established by Ezer Mizion, a compatible donor was located for me. During the course of the treatments I underwent, two additional donations were required. You mobilized the effort to save my life and did whatever was necessary to cure me. You did everything willingly and graciously, but also with determination stemming from the mission you voluntarily undertook.
Words do not suffice to express what I feel these days, now that I am liberated from a prolonged period of hospitalization. During this time there were more than a few difficult moments, and the bone marrow donations you organized for me with a willing heart, within a very short time framework, enabled me to recover.
I still have a long way to go, but I feel strengthened and hopeful about the success of the process. This is in large measure due to your exceptional generosity and kind-heartedness, and to all the good people who helped – and first and foremost, you.
It is wonderful to know that there are still good people like you, who volunteer day and night, for the purpose of literally saving lives. May such good deeds increase and may a cure be found for all those in need of one.
