Hello, my name is Sara. I am the mother of nine children, 7 of whom still live at home. We just lost my beloved husband to lung disease. I don't know how we will be able to cope now.

My husband, Nachum Kolitz ztz"l, was a very special man. A tremendous talmid chacham, he was the backbone of our family and the breadwinner. He was always cheerful and happy despite his intense suffering.  

Two years ago my husband was diagnosed with lung disease. He was constantly short of breath and eventually he relied on an oxygen machine to survive. He suffered for two long years, in and out of hospitals. This period was horrific for the whole family, and we slid further and further into debt.

After two years of suffering, a lung transplant operation gave us a glimmer of hope: maybe my husband would recover after all that we've been through. But those hopes were quickly dashed. On Motzaei Shabbos we lost my husband forever.

We are sitting shiva now. We are broken and devastated. I don't know how to continue alone.    

I don't know what will happen the day after we get up from shiva. I have 7 children at home and we have no income. Nothing at all. How will I support my seven children by myself? How will I feed them? We are already in debt from the enormous expenses while my husband was sick.

This is an extremely difficult time in our lives. My children are mourning and their anguish is indescribable; Nachum was everything to them. Please help me support my children. I can't watch them suffer more after the terrible experience that we've been through.   

May you never know such sorrow. 

Thank you so much, 

Sara
