I’m a Widowed Mom Of 6 Kids, The Youngest Is Only 6 Months Old. Please Help Me Survive Cancer, For Them
A note from Darchei Miriam 12/15: Thank you to all the donors who have come together so far to help this desperate mom. Please help us to reach our goal so that they can get the help they need.
Hi, my name is Chana. As I held my baby Chayale in my arms last week I decided I must write to the world and ask for help … I have to do whatever I can to live for my children.
I am a widowed mom of 6, and I am currently fighting cancer. At night I cry my eyes out praying for my kids – If I am not around who will raise them? I am very ill and weak and I spend hours each week on the bus to treatments. We simply can’t afford a luxury like a car… but the tosses and turns make me nauseous and recently I even fainted from the exhaustion of the trip.
I can barely afford babysitters anymore, but what will I do, bring Chayale to chemo? I don’t want her to be with me while I am suffering like that. Each night I feed the kids scrambled eggs or cereal for dinner. They long for chicken and rice but that is not where we are holding.
This much I could deal with but now we have gotten to the point where I cannot afford my treatments, I cannot afford my rent. It is now my life on the line. Please, if you are reading this, help. And I will pray for you with all of my heart. Chana
Darchei Miriam, an organization which saves the lives of cancer victims, is urgently raising money to save the life of Chaya’s mother “Chana”. She is a mother of 6 without a husband, parents or family. She is in dire need of expensive treatments that are not covered by national insurance. The cost is staggering.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky has also given his bracha to donors of Darchei Miriam that they should have no illness, and merit parnassah, nachas, and health. Donate here to receive this blessing from the Gadol HaDor.
We ask that donors please donate $200 or more if they can, as the need of the family is very urgent.
Thank you & tizku l’mitzvos.
