Fundraiser For Family Of Adam Krief Raises Over $130K

(JTA) — An online fundraiser for the wife of a Jewish cancer patient who died this month after his search for a bone marrow donor captured the attention of social media and celebrities has raised over $130,000 in three days.

Adam Krief died March 14 following complications after receiving a bone marrow transplant. He was 32.

A GoFundMe page was set up Tuesday to raise money to help Krief’s wife, Lia, care for the couple’s three young children. As of Friday morning, it had raised $133,000.

“Adam is a true angel who never lost sight of what was truly important — his wife Lia and his three children, and his commitment to help others,” a description on the online fundraiser reads. “The outpouring of support to Adam throughout his journey was both overwhelming and heartwarming and has continued on since his passing.”

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Mayim Bialik and Jason Biggs touted the highly publicized drives.
