Appreciative Parent and Patient Give Back


Dennis


When 12-year-old Dennis immigrated to Israel from the Ukraine, he was already sick and in need of a bone marrow transplant. His life was saved at Hadassah, thanks to a bone marrow donor from Germany. Now 18 years old, Dennis has joined the army.

He could have chosen not to go into a combat unit because, as an only child, according to Israeli law, he need not serve as a combat soldier.

In fact, he required his mother's permission to enter a fighting unit. Both Dennis and his mother, however, were in agreement about this commitment. As his mother said, "After what Israel and Hadassah did for us," we need to give back."
