Match Number 100!

Today we celebrate our 100th donor match through Ezra's Gift of Life donor circle (! The 100th donor match is for a 35 year old woman suffering from ALL. This is an incredible accomplishment and one that everyone should be very proud of. Our ability to find matches for so many other patients is due to the support of the thousands of people who have registered, given donations and/or held drives for Ezra and other patients like him. While we continue to hope for Ezra's perfect match, it brings us much comfort to know that we have helped other patients and their families find hope in the possibility of a cure. We pray that one day no patient should ever have to search for a match and that the miracle of a cure will be available to all patients in need. 

It has been a while since we have updated this blog. Ezra has been doing well on his medical treatments. He continues to gain weight and grow, better than ever before. He started in-home pre-school instruction through our local school district and is enjoying his lessons with his teacher very much. Ezra is still largely under isolation restrictions, but with the warmer weather, we have been able to enjoy more outside activities. We will have a more detailed medical update soon, but for now, things are stable, and we are grateful for that.  

Thank you again to everyone who has supported our efforts to find a match for Ezra and others over these past 3 years. It has been a privilege and an honor to help others find their miracle matches and we hope that you all share the joy of this amazing accomplishment with us.
