hope

There’s this guy I’ve never met.

Maybe I saw him once at Nagilla Pizza over on Pico Boulevard.  Or maybe we passed each other in front of the AMC at Century City back in the day.

His name is Adam Krief, and he’s 31 years old.

He’s a husband, and a father of three, and he has a rare form of blood cancer called primary myelofibrosis.

He needs a bone marrow transplant in order to stay alive.

Sometimes, you get lucky and you’re matched right away.  But Adam has a very rare blood type, and even though there are MILLIONS of wonderful and generous people on the bone marrow registry, none – NONE – are a match for Adam.

Adam is on chemo now, but it’s only to stay the course and buy him more time until they find a donor.

If they find a donor.

There was a massive effort in LA to find a match for Adam.

The Jewish community rallied behind him.

But… no luck.

So now he needs a miracle.

And where do you go when you need a miracle?

Israel.

We know that Israel is a country where total strangers show up to support one another during the worst of times – where we stand together to comfort the grieving, and we grieve as one.

Israel is also a country where we show up to weddings and celebrate the beginning of a new generation – we take hands and dance with total strangers.  That’s just how we do: We choose life.

Israel is a place where kindness matters – there’s a sense of family that extends beyond the dinner table, that transcends politics, and traffic jams.

And Adam and his family need us to come together for him.

Here’s how: On September 28th, there will be centers all over Israel – and not just for Adam… There are others waiting for miracles, too — some are little kids, some are young fathers…  and the more people on the registry, the more likely that they’ll get well
