Rebecca & Legacy & Bone Marrow Registry & Motor Vehicles!

 


Rebecca Salame lost her battle with her rare lymphoma in June of 2017.. Rebecca's dream was to have bone marrow kits at motor vehicles, so when someone applies for a license, that person  is asked to get swabbed and go into bone marrow registry to save a life of someone with a terminal disease at a later point in time.  There are so many diseases that can be cured with the finding of the perfect bone marrow match. The test if fast, easy and painless.  The number of applicants in registries in different ethnic categories are grossly underrepresented. If it was made that easy for people to get tested with kits at motor vehicles this would save countless lives.  Will you help Rebecca's dream turn into reality since she's no longer here? If you have any ideas, suggestions, leads how to make this a reality, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Save 1 Person.

What are Miracles from Heaven?  Jennifer Garner stars in this movie about a child who is dying from a rare disease and is miraculously saved as a result of a freak accident.  As a mom, it was difficult watching some of this movie, because I felt every emotion, as if that child was mine who was in so much pain and suffering.  I felt the anguish of the mom not knowing how to save her own child.  And then ultimately when there was nothing else left to do but pray, I dug into my own soul to see the depth of my own faith and belief in G-d. The movie was brilliant in reminding us that there are miracles everywhere. It reminds us that we are all connected.  It reminds us that miracles could be as big as a cure for a very sick child to the miracle of  a stranger being a secret angel in a time of need.  This movie was real, it pulled at your heart strings and it reaffirms what I believe, there are G-dly messages everywhere, whether it be wisdom shared in a church or synagogue or going to a Moms event with Jennifer Garner.  G-d talks to everyone in different ways, this time it's through one of America's biggest and brightest stars, Jennifer Garner.  Miracles from Heaven are everywhere and it's up to us to keep our hearts and eyes open to be witness to them. Thanks Moms for always having interesting and thought provoking events that make you ponder the meaning of life.  Save 1 Person. Save The World one miracle at a time.

I worked at TV networks years ago, and I loved the glitz and glamour of it.  What it lacked for me sometimes was meaning. I remember promoting Cindy Crawford's latest look at the beach or Monica Lewinsky's sexcapades and I would think is this all there really is in life? After I left the fast paced environment of the TV industry, I started a non profit called Save 1 Person.  Although I love this work, and there's nothing more fulfilling than to see your team, as part of the process to save a life, at times this work can be very heavy.  Since I've been attending, The Moms events (Themoms.com) it's been combining two worlds I love, one of intrigue and one of meaning.  Since, I've been attending the Moms events it reminds me that there are many, many ways to save a life. Quite, often it's sharing stories of hope, inspiration and courage from all walks of life.  Everyone has a story that can touch, move and inspire others to carry on and fight the good fight despite the obstacles along the way. And we need desperately to hear these stories, to know we are not alone. And that others have persevered and others have created a path, and if they can overcome their challenges, we can too.

Vision of Save 1 Person!

DONOR MATCH - DR RICHMAN 2

Dr. Ron Richman from NY recieved a gift of a lifetime, a kidney, from a stranger in FLorida.  This life saving match was created when Channel 11's, Howard Thompson (Help Me Howard) picked up a Save 1 Person News Alert to save a life.

Email from Dr. Richman, four years later, "Hi Lauren, Can't believe it has been 4 years since my transplant, I am doing great and living life to the fullest.  want to thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your efforts to save my life. I am so lucky to see my children become wonderful productive adults. Life is great when you have health and a great partner-Karen, to share it with. You, Chaya, Allen and of course Lloyd are true miracles sent from G-D! Happy Thanksgiving Ron Richman

Save 1 Person is designed to save lives through the media and it works!  This media campaign is something the world can particpate in, whether it be making sure the life to save gets on the nightly news, or seeing if you're a bone marrow match for a child with Leukemia, or donating a kidney. We can all participate in saving lives through the power of the media.

There should be mandatory Save 1 Person units in every media outlet across the world. Two Save 1 Person Alerts would run on every Save 1 Person affilliate each week. One Save 1 News Alert would run globally for a specific person with a life saving need.  And the other Save 1 News Alert that would run that week would be a specific life saving need of someone in that community.  For instance, if someone was in need of a bone marrow match in Poland, this Save 1 Alert could run in Idaho. In addition, that local station in Idaho,not only would run the Save 1 Alert for someone in Poland, but for someone with a life saving need in that  specific region in Idaho.

In addition,  the on-air local personality asks people to write in with their own life-saving needs, an assistant from the local affiliate collects information on the neediest cases from the community.
  
The station chooses the life of the week to save -  and then a reporter goes on air and broadcasts the need to the public in the form of a Save 1 News Alert.  The on-air personality asks the public to contact the station if the audience member would like to save a life. The assistant at the media outlet, passes the information onto the person in need from the community and or passes the information to the Save 1 Person headquarters to assist others at a later point in time and all is stored is a master database.
 
 IF YOU CAN HELP TAKE THIS VISION INTO MEDIA OUTLETS ACROSS AMERICA:  PLEASE CONTACT US ASAP.  THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE, SOMEONE'S LIFE IS DEPENDING ON YOU.
 
 

Miracles & Graves

When You Need a Miracle Where Do You Go?

A Miracle from the Graves:
 
One of my favorite miracle stories for my non profit Save1person.org (where we highlight one person in the media who needs a medical miracle  to save a life of someone in need of an organ donor) is the one about Heshy Felig.  Heshy, an Orthodox Jew who lives in California,  needed a living kidney donor.   Heshy was dying and needed a miracle. So Heshy took matters into his own hands and went to Israel to pray at the righteous souls' graves to ask for divine assistance. Heshy's miracle arrived through the channel of my non profit, Save 1 Person. We sent out a Save 1 alert for Heshy through the media, and a stranger from Alabama, a religious Catholic woman, decided to save his life and give up one of her kidneys as a living kidney donor. Marisa never saw a Jew before, but nevertheless gave a kidney to a Jew.  The stars aligned and Heshy received his miracle.  As I write this Heshy's ten-year kidney anniversary just passed and recipient and donor are now eternally tied.
 
From Bars to Graves:
 
Years ago I was exposed to praying at tsadiks' graves with the holy Rebbetzin Jungreis in Israel. Before I met her I used to go to bars and clubs not to graves and caves,  Nevertheless, the rebbetzin showed me what it was like to believe in something bigger than the here and now. There was something comforting to me to  go to these righteous souls' graves. It gave me connection; it gave me hope; it gave me a feeling that I had an angel I could call on when I needed it the most. But most of all it connected me to the world of souls letting me know that I was never alone. There was more than I could see out there.  So now whenever I go to Israel I try to stop where I can get some extra angelic help.
 
 Studying with Sarah from the Kabbalah Center:
 
Every Monday, like clock work, I study the Zohar with Sarah Yardeni at the Kabbalah Center. She mentioned she was taking some students to Israel to some tsadiks' graves.  I asked her if I could go with her, she said yes, and off we went to what seemed to me every single Kabbalist's grave in the holy land. I thought Rebbetzin Jungreis had it all covered, but with Sarah we went from early morning to late at night praying, connecting, talking, getting and giving messages to the souls that were encased in the tombs and graves.

I can't remember all the graves we went to, so I will just point out the out-of-world experiences. We went to  Hevron and visited the matriarchs and patriarchs as one of our events that  stood out in this worldwind grave tour. What was scary, unbelievable and surreal to me was that Sarah, our teacher, insisted we go to the Arab side where the tunnel is present to the Garden of Eden. The righteous believe that all souls who are born and die travel through this portal before they are born and die. This portal was in a mosque. We had to say we were American tourists, not Jews or Israelis, in order to enter. The streets were deserted. This is the same mosque where a radical, extremely religious man  shot dead numerous praying Arabs.  I was frightened upon entering the Arab section because I had heard in the news about people dying here after conflict. The wall we were standing in front of had what looked like smeared blood. However, it could have been red paint or graffiti. Sarah, our teacher and leader, valiantly lead us to collect energy from the passageway from earth to heaven. For me, personally, the experience was so intense that my heart started tingling. I had to catch my breath.  I'm not sure what I was experiencing, but whatever it was I felt it did not belong to this world.

Another stand out moment was when we hiked down to the cave of Rabbi Chiya. This rabbi was one of the 13 men who studied the secrets of the Zohar with Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Rabbi Chiya is referred to many times in the Zohar. What struck me the most was our group's devotion to finding these holy souls and collecting the energy we could then share with the world. Again, trekking down these hills we didn't know what we would find, yet we all knew it was mystical, magical.  It was divine guidance that led us all on the same spot to gather or download the energy to carry out our unique mission.
 
rabbichaya
 
Another common stop for most tourists was Rabbi Meir Ha Ness. We prayed, cried, requested our miracles. To me there is something extremely cathartic about visiting these spots. Our teacher, Sarah, explained that a miracle is simply when we go against our own nature, and we all have the power to be miracle makers. Sarah told us not to pray for a miracle, rather pray that you are able to get out of your own way to be that miracle maker.  Pray to see your own blocks; to be able to receive the miracles that are limitless. I personally prayed for both.
 ness
 
And yet another out- of-this world experience was venturing off to the cave where Rav Shimon Ben Yochai and other holy souls gathered, and where Rav Shimon revealed the secrets of the Zohar to them. This location is between Tsfat and Meron.  We had our bodyguard Golan with us.  In the middle of the night he scouted out the area beforehand to make sure it was safe. We all sat on he floor with candles. Our teacher was reading an excerpt from the Potach Eliyahu, and we all lit candles for what we wanted to create in the world. My heartfelt utterance was unconditional love.

We went to so many rabbis' graves from Taninim (rabbis who were known to bring back the dead) to Yonatan Ben Uziel (Amukah). I did not know a lot of these souls who passed. I do know the feeling it left with me.  There's so much more than meets the eye.  It also left me with a profound feeling of gratitude that I could connect to these holy souls that created a pathway for the living to make a difference in the life of others. This trip was a gift from the heavens above.
 
I would be remiss if I didn't mention one of the biggest gifts of all:  traveling with a group of like minded individuals on a spiritual mission. Together with Golan, our bodyguard, and Ronen, our bus driver, we moved through Israel as one unit, taking our experiences and giving them back to create a global transformation of love and unity.
 
love
 
So, what does all this have to do with Save 1 Person (Save1person.org)? Isn't saving a life sometimes opening up our eyes to realize there's a much bigger picture than we can ever imagine? What are you not seeing in your own life that's beyond this world? Save 1 Person. Save The World.
 
 
 
 

We are all Heroes!

hero1010pic

1010 Wins Radio in celebration of their 50th Anniversary, featured local heroes and I received a call to do a segment becasue of my work at Save1person.org.  It was quite the honor, because sometimes I doubt the reason why I do this work and its progress at times.  My dream is huge and that is to have Save 1 Person units in every media outlet across the globe, where a reporter at a station broadcasts the need of someone who needs a medical miracle and then their audiences respond to save a life. And every media outlet is branded Save 1 Person.  Right now there's one office, that's me.  Imagine if their were Save 1 Person offices all over the globe.  That's the dream to turn media into a life saving mechanism now and for generations to come. Below is the link to the sixty second 1010 Wins Radio segment. I can't help to think that we are all heroes when we reach out to another to make a difference.  Whether it's a mommy staying up all night with her sick child, or holding that door open for the elderly woman and / or donating bone marrow or a kidney. When we take time out to make a difference in the life of someone else, lives change for the better and it causes infinite ripple effects unseen by the human eye.
