HADASSAH MOURNS
PASSING OF
HARRY LINDENBAUM

Hadassah mourns the
passing of a Mr. Harry Lin-
denbaum which occurred on
Saturday, April 23. Mr.
Lindenbaum was an associ-
ate member of Hadassah
and a very generous con-
tributor. Among his many
major gifts are the Reva and
Harry Lindenbaum Nurses
Residence and the Reva and
Harry Lindenbaum Recep-
tion Room in the Oncology
Department both at the
Hadassah Hospital at Ein
Karen, and the Hadassah

tute which is also named for
his late wife Reva and him-
self.

INFANT THRIVING AFTER BONE-MARROW TRANSPLANT FOR THALASSEMIA ANEMIA

were willing to donate his
bone marrow to Tomer,
there was a possibility of
curing his son completely of
the Thalassemia.
'Amram takes up the
story: "Of course, I was will-
ing! Tomer and I entered
Hadassah together, even
sharing a room. Removing
the bone marrow was like
minor surgery, and the
after-effects lasted about
two or three days, after
which I felt myself again.
Amram says, "Tomer was
in the hospital for a month
and every day saw an im-
provement. It's over four
months since my bone mar-
row was transplanted into
my son, and the doctors be-
lieve that he is completely
cured. It is a miracle for
which we will be eternally
grateful to Hadassah."

Dr. Shimon Slavin, head
of the Transplantation Unit
at Hadassah, comments: "It
is, indeed, safe to assume
that Tomer is completely
cured. Up to 100 days after
transplantation of bone
marrow there is a danger of
rejection by the recipient
and of Graft-Versus-Host
Disease (GVHD), but the
tests have confirmed that
the transplant has been
completely successful."
Dr. Eliezer Rachmilewitz,
head of the Hematology De-
partment of Hadassah
which handles Thalassemia
patients, added that he has
two more candidates lined
up for such bone-marrow
transplants.
Thalassemia is a congeni-
tal blood disease in • which
the bone marrow produces
blood cells with abnormal
hemoglobin. This affects the
blood's ability to carry oxy-
gen to the tissues of the body
and results in serious
anemia, causing severe
changes in all the major or-
gans of the body. Until now
there has been no cure for
the disease. Sufferers have
characteristic taut facial
expressions and underde-
veloped bodies. Few survive
into adulthood. In order to
keep alive, they are given
from infancy blood transfu-
sions once every three to
four weeks.

FACILITIES: The Tournament will be
played on 10 indoor hard courts.

DATES: Wednesday, June 1 through

Dental Health in
Jerusalem Schools

JERUSALEM — Dental
Hygiene students in the
Hebrew University-
Hadassah School of Dental
Medicine have launched a
campaign to promote dental
hygiene in Jerusalem
schools. They have distrib-
uted 5,000 toothbrushes,
tubes of toothpaste and
packs of dental floss in
classrooms.
Even though dental
treatment is extremely ex-
pensive, preventive dental
hygiene is grossly neglected
in Israel, and parents are
unaware that dental trou-
ble could be avoided accord-
ing to Dr. Jonathan Mann,
who heads the two-year
Dental Hygenist Course,
which is the first of its kind
in Israel and is now in its
fifth year.
The students give demon-
strations and explain how to
brush the teeth properly,
eat the right food, u s e
fluorides, and have regular
dental check-ups. They
have prepared a variety of
illustrative materials,
songs, games and teaching
programs on the subject.
The School of Dentistry,
founded by Alpha Omega
Fraternity, is maintained
by Hadassah.
