My name is Yaakov, I live it Kiryat Sefer, and I am the father of 9 children. Almost three years ago my wife, Miri (Gila Miriam Bas Sarah Hinda), was diagnoised with ALS. Miri is at a point in the disease where she can't move at all, she is on a breathing machine, she's fed and receives nurishment through a tube. She requires constant care and surpervision, 24 hours a day. 

I used to own a catering company, however I am now unable to work. Myself and my 15 year old daughter are the ones that take care of her, 24 hours a day. We are in desperate need of live-in help, 24 hour care, someone with experience in working with a person with ALS and who can tend to her personal physical needs.

Besides for the usual expenses of running a house with many children, it costs over $8,000 a month for the medical expenses and other expenses involved with the care of Miri. I have no way to pay for the general living expenses, let alone the medical expenses. We married off 2 daughters this year (in Shvat and Adar) that was a tremendous expense I have also accumulated an enomorous amount of debt as a result of all the medical expenses. 

We are crushing down financially and emotionally and desperately need your help! Especially now that we MUST move to an apartment on a lower floor. We live now on the 3rd floor without an evalator. It's impossible to take Miri out of the house, something that the doctors say we must do for her emotional and mental well-being, that she should live.

Thank you and may Hashem bless you with good health, parnassah, nachas, and may you in inscribed for a sweet new year. You should never know the pain my family as went through.
