    Cancer supportNSCI Cancer Support: Members Helping Members
    As you know, there are fewer and fewer among us who can say that their lives haven’t been touched in some way by cancer. Whether diagnosed themselves or knowing a loved one with a cancer diagnosis, the reality is that cancer is increasingly impacting all of our lives. Many of us have found support informally through our extended NSCI family and friends, but at this point, NSCI is looking to create a more explicit network of support for people with cancer and their families. Our first step will be to create personalized connections that enable 1-on-1 support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers within our congregation.

    We are looking for the following NSCI members: If you would be interested in being a mentor/supporter to someone in need of asking personal questions and receiving support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the cancer experience or if you or a loved one has been recently diagnosed and would like to be paired with a mentor/supporter, please contact our member, cancer survivor, and program coordinator, Carole Mark Gingiss at or 847/432-5576. All inquiries will be kept confidential.

    Swab a Cheek – Save a Life! Join our Gift of Life Bone Marrow Drive
    Sunday, September 7, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and Rosh Hashanah, Thursday, September 25, 8:30 am – 2:00 pm in Rebecc
    a K. Crown Social Hall
    Our congregation has partnered with Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism to bring an exciting and unique opportunity to help save lives through a donor recruitment drive. Potential donors will be entered into the bone marrow registry. Registration is simple, it requires a quick cheek swab and completion of a consent form. Potential donors must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and in general good health. The only way to know if you can help save a life is to take the first step and get tested! The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. Joining the registry does not mean you will automatically be a donor, but it does mean you can be a potential donor until your 61st birthday. No need to pre-register, just walk in.
