My wife, Devorah, was a very special woman.

The picture above was taken in the hospital just two days before she passed away.

Two years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. She suffered through treatments, through pain and fear, and finally she found herself on the other side. She was in remission and she could return to being mom to our eight kids.

 

Her cancer gave her a new outlook on life. She spoke to girls and women about how her illness inspired her to become closer to Hashem. She explained that illness can be a bracha, if you make it one. She was the strongest, bravest person I ever knew.

 

Then, last month, the cancer came back. It was only two weeks before she was gone forever.

 

Now, eight beautiful children are left without a mother. Our youngest is 2 years old, our oldest 13. They are shocked. Even on her deathbed she had a smile on her face. They did not realize that she was dying. Their world has been shattered.

 

The funeral was on Friday. We are sitting shiva now.

 

It is unclear how I will raise and support this large family alone. I ask you from the depths of my heart: Help me to make a future for these children, without their mother. We are all suffering deeply.

 

Please help us so that I can give these children a normal life:  babysitters, new clothes for school, warm coats in the winter, their bar mitzvahs, their school expenses, and all the things that kids get to have when they have two parents taking care of them. Any help you can give would be appreciated. They've already suffered enough. 

 

Thank you.

 

Tuvia Ben-Dovid
