Help Orly and Nate Save for College

Dear friends and family,

As I believe most of you know, in December of 2016, Emil’s wife, Johanna, suffered an unexpected heart attack and a resulting severe brain damage, and has since remained in a minimally conscious state. 

Overnight, Emil lost his amazing wife and the wonderful mother of his two young children. Orly and Nate were 4 and 2 at the time, and they miss their mother dearly. 

The devastation of what Emil has gone through is impossible to describe. But the kids are doing well, growing up fast and, as a result of Emil’s endless love and dedication, they continue to have, as much as possible, a normal life and are surrounded with love and care. 

Orly and Nate are the reason why Emil keeps going and fighting. He wants to provide the best future possible for them, knowing that this is what Johanna would want the most, as well. He is doing his very best but is concerned about the financial burden of being a single parent and saving money for college for Orly and Nate. 

So, we are staring a fundraiser to help raise funds for a 529 College Savings Plan for the kids. 

Emil, Orly, Nate and our whole family are all so grateful for your continued love and support.
