  • (1888PressRelease) February 21, 2017 - Two women, Dikla Carmel and Michelle Krief, will be recognized for running a massive donor search on behalf of a single patient during the fall months of 2016. Michelle's brother, Adam Krief, was diagnosed in July with an aggressive form of leukemia. This young father of three did not have a match in the international registry, so family and friends united to launch a search.

    Michelle and Dikla organized hundreds of drives across the United States, and the #Hope4Adam effort resulted in an astonishing 22,484 new donors joining Gift of Life's registry between September and December 2016. To date ten matches have been found, and one transplant completed.

    Adam also received a transplant, in December 2016, and is currently in recovery.

    Tickets are on sale for both events and space is limited.
