Hello, my name is Alexander Kochman. I am a father of six beautiful children ka"h, and I was recently diagnosed with cancer.

For a long time I experienced stomach pain, but we were in complete shock when the x-rays showed a cancerous tumor in my abdomen. 

Since my diagnosis, life has changed.

Undergoing treatments has been a major challenge. I am very weak and find it extremely difficult to do just about anything. I have had to leave my job and spend my days just trying to cope with the pain. My dear wife Nechama has been by my side, helping me to do everything, from bringing food to my bedside, to accompanying me to the hospital. In this time our income has gone down to zero. We have lost the ability to pay our bills. 

 This is painful enough - but there is another layer to the story. Our wonderful daughter Faigy is engaged to be married in just two weeks.

As of now she does not have a hall, a dress, an apartment to move into, or furniture, or a way to make the most simple sheva brachos.

She works hard at her job but what she makes goes toward supporting us, her parents. It is painful as a father to know my young daughter, who should be enjoying being a kallah, is putting her whole paycheck toward my own food and bills. My heart absolutely breaks for her.

And so I ask you, from the bottom of my heart, if you can help us - Cancer has kept me from being the father that Faigy deserves, the father that will marry her off and help her start her life with security. Cancer has kept me from being the husband that I should be, who supports his family and is not a constant burden. Will you, klal yisroel, step in to be what I can't? To be a father and a husband to my beautiful children who simply want food on the table, and to not live in fear?

Just days remain until the chasuna and we are in a state of emergency. If you could help it would mean the world to us. I bless you with health, for you and for your family. Alexander Kochman
