Hadassah Patient Celebrates Victory Over Cancer Thanks to Bone Marrow Donor

Andrea Moriah, a Hadassah Medical Center patient who overcame chronic lymphatic leukemia several years ago, experienced a relapse 18 months ago. With her life in jeopardy despite additional chemotherapy and radiation, Andrea received a successful bone marrow transplant from a 32-year-old donor who had signed up with Hadassah’s tissue typing registry 11 years ago! Her donor, Eliakim, didn’t hesitate for a moment when he received the call from Hadassah.

As Andrea celebrated her second victory over cancer, she received the added gift of meeting her donor.
