Hello,

 

My name is Yoel Klapholtz. I'm a father, and I work for our parnassah Baruch Hashem. 

 

No parents wants to learn that their child is ill. But that was Hashem’s plan for our teenage son Reuven.

 

He has a painful and horrific cancer on his face [pictures below]. Now it has spread, and is so painful he can’t sleep or eat. He can’t do anything. It has completely taken over his face, and his life.

 

We have consulted with Rabbi Firer, and are advised to get him a specific life-saving surgery. It’s unclear now if we will have to fly to America, or need to bring a doctor into Israel. Either way, we must get this surgery to save this boy’s life.

 

There is no way we could possibly get this money together on our own. The only thing that is stopping us from saving his life is $65,000. 

 

We can't give up on this child! 

 

Please, this boy has a whole life ahead of him. He is spending his teenage years suffering in pain in his own bed, unable to move.

 

Together we can save his life.

 

Please give what you can.

 

Thank You

 

Yoel
