Hi, My name’s Leah. I’m 15 years old. I have a sickness called cerebral palsy.

It means that I have brain damage that keeps me from being able to control my muscles. I’m in a wheelchair. I have a lot of pain. I don’t get to go to school or do normal teenage girl things. Instead my life is about hospitals, and treatments. And it’s only getting worse.

If I don't get surgery to stop the disease's progress, I will get sicker and sicker until I die. It is a terrifying way to live. My life, however, has a price: $80,000 for the surgery.

The procedure, which would require me flying out to St Louis Children's Hospital in America, would stop my body's deterioration and even allow me to walk. It would mean more time on this earth. There is no exaggerating how much it would change my life. 

My family lives simply. We are a regular, modest Kiryat Sefer family.

I am begging you, begging anyone who will listen, I don't want to keep getting sicker until I die. I want a chance at a better life. At walking, like a regular girl. 

Please, have pity on me, and give me more time to live. Thank you. 

Leah
