A True Gift of Life

“Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.” – Talmud Yerushalmi, Sanhedrin 4:12

Each summer for the past several years, we have run a drive during Coleman’s Staff Week for the Gift of Life donor registry. In 2014, Ryan Corning, a former Coleman staff member and NFTY-STR teen, participated in the drive at camp. Over a year ago, Ryan was found to be a match for a man diagnosed with Leukemia. Ryan jumped at the chance to save a life of a person he had never met, and he did just that. Yesterday, Ryan met for the first time ever the man whose life he saved. You can see the Facebook Live recording of the event here and read the local news article here.
