I write to you as a heartbroken mother, with no choice but to turn you to for help.

Two months ago, Hashem blessed us with the ultimate miracle: A baby boy. But what should have been a moment of pure happening was also a moment of shock and fear. The doctors & nurses rushed my new baby away to determine the diagnosis: He had a severe cleft lip, with the tear leading all the way up to his nose. 

Life since then has been a painful roller coaster of trying to soothe a baby who is in pain. He can't eat because it hurts him. He can't sleep because he's hungry.

The fear and pain is tearing us apart.

Raphael's case is especially severe. The doctors in Israel woudl need to perform multiple surgeries on my baby, and he would live with scars.  In America, however, they could reconstruct Raphael's face in one surgery, and he could live to look like a normal kid.  

That is our dream for him: That he can live a life like any other kid, without bullying or humiliation. 

However the surgery is extremely expensive: $25,000.

We could never pay such a fee. 

I am counting on YOU, amazing & generous people! Please help us to reach our goal and to GIVE BABY RAPHAEL A NORMAL LIFE!

Thank you!!
