Blood samples sought to find bone marrow donors Magen David Adom and the Eli Alkobi Memorial Struggle for Life are holding a drive for potential bone marrow donors on Tuesday. They are searching for a compatible donor for Ya’acov Rubin, who urgently needs bone marrow and whose family members’ tissue types are not compatible. Blood samples will be taken Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at MDA stations in Jerusalem and Beersheba and the Tel Hashomer Blood Center, as well as in the large shopping centers in Jerusalem (Malha), Haifa (Kiryon and Lev Hamifratz)), Rishon Lezion, Bat Yam, Rehovot, Beersheba, Ramat Gan and Netanya. As many as 100 Israeli patients waiting for compatible bone marrow donations could also benefit from the identification of suitable donors. Anyone who has already given a blood sample for the bone marrow registry need not do so again. More information is available at 03-5300400.
