Our Mitzvah Market readers fell in love with the Warter family from Livingston, New Jersey when we featured their son Ryan, who has special needs. Check out their Mitzvah Family Spotlight story.
Recently, we learned about Dad Oren and his diagnosis, at age 44 of Acute Myologenous Leukemia (AML). This is an aggressive form of Leukemia. He is currently undergoing intense chemotherapy to try and stabilize his body, but Oren is in need of a lifesaving bone marrow transplant. His perfect match could be a colleague, friend, neighbor or perfect stranger. It could be you!

In honor of Oren’s fight, “Warter Strong” will hold a donor recruitment drive with Gift of Life at the Celebrate! Party Showcase on Sunday, January 11, 2015 from 11-4PM at the Park Ridge Marriott, 300 Brae Boulevard.
How does this work?
All it takes is 10 seconds and swabbing the inside of your cheek. It’s easy and it’s painless. If you are between the ages of 18 and 50, in general good health, you are eligible to participate and join the worldwide registry.
Please pre-register for our free Celebrate! Party Showcase at www.celebrateshowcase.com and stop by the Gift Of Life donation room to try and help the Warter family.
