La Cañada resident Walter Furman currently is fighting acute myelogenous leukemia, a particularly aggressive form of cancer affecting the production of healthy blood cells. The only cure for this disease is a bone marrow transplant. Bone marrow matches are most likely to be found within ethnic groups. There are currently over 700,000 Jewish donors in the various bone marrow registries across the world, but none have matched Furman’s profile. Pasadena Jewish Temple will host a stem cell match drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Sunday, Dec. 7. All Jewish community members between the ages of 18 and 61 are encouraged to come in for testing.

And a nice gelato seemed like manna in the desert. It was our first visit to Bulgarini’s. Question: Why is the Bulgarini Gelato Artigianale different from all other gelaterias?
