UPDATE BDE This Past Thursday Yakkov Was Niftar He Left Behind a Wife And 8 Young Children.

Dear Fellow Yidden,

I am crying out to you for the pain is too great to bear. Yaakov and I are in our mid 30’s and we have been blessed with eight beautiful children. For many years my husband suffered from Crohn’s disease and needed medication to stabilize him. Unfortunately, three years ago the medication took its toll and he was diagnosed with cancer. After many rounds of treatments Yaakov was finally in remission and was doing good BH. Then, he started not feeling well again. He was diagnosed liver failure. He is fighting back with every ounce of strength he has but his liver is failing. He is suffering terribly and the prognosis is bleak. I fear he is losing all hope. Now, just when we couldn’t bear it any longer the doctors discovered that Yaakov is suffering from an acute case osteoporosis. His hips are crumbling. The torture my dear husband is going through is not to be believed! He is sedated for the pain is too great to bear. I can not watch this any longer! He is withering in front of my eyes. 

PLEASE listen to my words of sorrow and help in any way you can. My eight young children are confused. They have no father to bring them to shul nor a mother to welcome them warmly when they come home from school. Their life has turned upside down.

 

Please donate all you can so that my eight young children have the basic food and clothes they need to make it through each day.   

 

                        Signed With Tears,

                                Rivka
