Of Cell Phones and Stem Cells

Perhaps it was the name they shared-stem cells and cell phones. Perhaps it was a sudden rush of love for his young daughter whose life had been in danger just a few short years ago. Perhaps it was his good character enabling him to retain a feeling of gratitude, even years later, combined with a strong desire to pay back. Perhaps it was all three which gave Yuval Kadosh the idea of using discarded cell phones to  help other cancer patients . Continue reading Of Cell Phones and Stem Cells
