These facts are terrifying and unimaginable but are sadly happening now to a Jewish family in Israel.
They were once one happy family of 17 with a loving mother and dad, but then tragedy stroke, when 11 of the kids were diagnosed – in a short period of time – with a genetic Cancer called NF 2. But not only that, after a while of tremendous suffering and extensive treatment, their father succumbed to the same genetic Cancer illness and passed away ה”י leaving the entire family and widow to deal with the excruciating pain all ALL ALONE!
Through the years, three of their kids passed away; and now a new chapter of suffering and agony opened for this broken widow and her kids. We cannot describe the pain this widow had to endure, but she remained strong hoping for the best.
Chana, one of the kids, a 17-year old Yesomah only came back from Kever Rochel with her mother after praying for the well-being of her older brother David who was about to go through a complicated surgery in Germany to save his life. As she walked into the door, she collapsed. Hatzolah rushed her to the Sharei Tzedek Hospital in a critical state; she is currently in ICU on a respirator.
Now, the mother who lost her husband, a mother who lost three of her beloved kids, must deal with this new devastating reality. Channa and David will have to be transferred to Germany to go through a medical procedure that will save their lives אי”ה, while another few of their children will have to go for special treatments as well.
See below one of the bill expenses for David’s surgery and the scheduled surgery for Chana that must be paid by Friday, and that includes the transfer costs of tens of thousands of dollars.
In the name of the heartbroken widow and many prominent Rabbis and community leaders we’re pleading to Klal Israel for help, so we can cover the medical expenses and give this family another chance of life.
At the same time, it is refreshing to share that one of the three healthy children is getting married in a few weeks, but there is no father to provide for the wedding expenses, especially under such dire circumstances.
