Alan Halpern, Har HaShem Executive Director

Dear Friends,

My mother was a regular blood donor. When she, in turn, was diagnosed with a blood disorder that evolved into leukemia, she required regular transfusions of various blood components for about four years. Thanks to the generosity of uncounted donors, she survived for about four years after her diagnosis, to see not just her first, but also her second grandchild born. Since her death, I’ve donated platelets more than 75 times in Chicago, in Dayton and now in Boulder. Whether you give whole blood, plasma or platelets, your time and blood saves lives.

Please volunteer to donate blood at Har HaShem on April 23rd.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
