Save a Life With Matnas Chaim

(Courtesy of Matnas Chaim) Matnas Chaim is a public, nonprofit blood stem cell and marrow registry curing blood cancer and other life-threatening diseases by finding transplant donors for patients. Thirty years ago, Jewish blood cancer patients had only a 5% chance of finding a donor, due to the lack of donors in the registry. Thanks to decades of focused recruiting among Jewish communities through Matnas Chaim and other registries, today’s Jewish patients have a greater than 75% chance of finding a match.

The lifesaving work of Matnas Chaim has steadily grown with local recruitment drives in the Orthodox communities and a successful campaign in 2017 that swept through the entire yeshiva system throughout America, Canada and Israel. To help with this innovative work, we are holding a swab drive at Brookhaven Mall (217 Main Avenue, Passaic, New Jersey) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., where Yeshiva University Campus Ambassadors can further explain the process and help willing participants to swab their cheeks and be added to the national registry to give them a chance to save a life.
