Grandma and Me: 6 year old Ilai needed a bone marrow transplant to save his life. So did his grandmother. "We're in this together," they said to each other with a grin. "Every week we have story time. Not Curious George but blood readings. Only if the story is good, though." Ezer Mizion's International Jewish Bone Marrow Registry found matches for them both. "We fought a war on 2 fronts...and won, thanks to Ezer Mizion!"
10-9- 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-blastoff. Hundreds of parents and children release balloons together with their messages for good health towards the heavens- the climax of Ezer Mizion's Summer Camp for Families dealing with Cancer
Daphne didn't own a jeep but was not about to be left out of the mitzvah of providing enjoyment for cancer patients at the annual jeeping trip. She set up a refreshment stand along the jeeping trail that created many a smile as jeep after jeep stopped to partake of her goodies.
Our little son spent 28 days in the hospital battling cancer. It was a nightmare. Ezer Mizion gave us a hotel-like suite to live in for the duration so we could be near the hospital, hot meals, snacks for us, prizes for our hero and fun, fun, fun after treatments each day..
Do you like it? I made it at Ezer Mizion's Guest Home for Children with Cancer. i have a lot of fun there. Sometimes we do music or have stories. Sometimes we pet animals at Ezer Mizion's Petting Zoo. The grownups call it therapy. I call it fun. It's something to look forward to during the mornings of those scary treatments.
