is bone marrow
transplant is over,
but Jonathan Cohen
and his family know it is too
soon to tell whether he has
won his fight with leukemia.
First diagnosed with the
disease in December 1989,
Mr. Cohen, 20, a Southfield-
Lathrup High School
graduate, went through a
brief remission. But a few
months later, doctors told
Mr. Cohen's family his best
chance for full recovery was
finding a bone marrow do-
nor. After a year-long, com-
plicated and expensive sear-
ch, an anonymous donor was
found.
Mr. Cohen spent the week
before the May 17 bone
marrow transplant receiving
total body radiation, which
destroys not only the re-
maining cancer cells but his
immune system as well.
To keep busy as the bone
marrow entered his body
through an IV placed in his
chest, Mr. Cohen watched
the Pistons beat the Boston
Celtics from his room at
Harper Hospital, said his
mother Charlene Ehrlich.
"I have to write a letter to
the Pistons telling them
what a great job they did
distracting my son," Mrs.
Ehrlich said.
"He's starting to feel the
effects of the total body radi-
ation. He's nauseous and has
aches and pains. That should
last a week."

"Hopefully, he'll have a
brief break before the
marrow starts fighting the
body," she said. The donor's
marrow will likely attack
Mr. Cohen's body as a for-
eign substance. Graft versus
host disease is common after
bone marrow transplants.
Symptoms include a rash
and diarrhea, or could lead
to death.
"The easy part is over,"
Mrs. Ehrlich said. "Now we
have to wait to see what
happens."

While doctors hope for
some sort of reaction a week
or two weeks after the
transplant as an indication
that the procedure worked,
the family prays it will be
mild. "It could be minor or
extremely serious," Mrs.
Ehrlich said. "Everybody is
different."
As they wait, Mr. Cohen
tries to keep busy. He has a
CD player and a television
set in his hospital room, Mrs.
Ehrlich said. She would like
to borrow a VCR so he can
watch movies.

Because he no longer has
an immune system, visitors
must wear a mask. To ward
off pneumonia, Mr. Cohen
must take a walk around the
hospital floor every day
wearing protective clothing.
He is expected to be in the
hospital another six weeks.
"Sometimes his spirits are
up and sometimes his spirits
are down," Mrs. Ehrlich
said. "We take one day at a
time."



For Area Listener,
Short Wave Cuts Hurt

PHIL JACOBS

Managing Editor

A

llan Gale has enjoyed
listening to short
wave radio since he
was a child. He can re-
member cozying up to the
Beatles out of KAAY in
Little Rock, Arkansas.
It was the short wave that
broke through a near sleep
one evening in 1980 to tell
him that John Lennon was
killed. And it was over the
radio that Mr. Gale, the as-
sociate director of Detroit's
Jewish Community Council,
heard the sirens and warn-
ings to Israelis last January
that Iraqi Scud missiles
were incoming.
Mr. Gale is a self-described

"news junkie," especially
when it comes to radio out of
Israel. Up until now, there
have been eight overseas
broadcasts from Israel dur-
ing various half-hour news
and feature spots during the
day. The packages come over
the area as 20 minutes of
features and 10 minutes of
news.
But Mr. Gale and other
"infomaniacs" like himself
are not happy over a recent-
ly announced cutback in
short-wave broadcasts out of
Israel. As of June 1, the
Israel Broadcast Authority
is cutting back its English
and Spanish short-wave
broadcasts to North, Central
and South America. It's
eliminating entirely its
broadcast services in
