Help us save Pe'er's Life

Hello Friends and Family: 

I am helping a childhood friend of mine, David MorHaim, to raise money in order to save his son Pe'er's life.
David and I grew up together in Be'er Sheva, Israel.  David was always there for me throughout my childhood and it is now my opportunity to help him save his son's life. Please take a minute and read David's story. 

My name is David, and my wife, Hen, and I would like to share with you a personal story about our 3-year-old boy, Pe'er.  A couple of months ago, Pe'er was diagnosed with malignant neoplasm of his kidneys, and since that day, all of our lives have completely changed.

First, Pe'er is going through several rounds of invasive and grueling treatments which include the removal of the infected kidney, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Additionally, both Hen and I have been forced to quit our jobs so that our time is fully dedicated to Pe'er’s care. As such, we are under considerable financial stress and are not able to provide for our family’s most basic needs.

Third, the cost of Pe'er's treatments have become such a huge physical, emotional, and financial burden on our family that we can no longer afford to pay for his therapy.

Finally, Hen is 8 months pregnant, which is an undeniable blessing, but comes with its own set of additional medical and financial needs that have strained our family to the to the point of exhaustion.

Since we have expended all of our resources in the State of Israel, we have contacted our dear friend, Israel Abitbol, to help spread Pe'er's story.  We would like to humbly ask you to consider helping us through this incredibly difficult time by making a financial contribution to help cover the costs of Pe'er's ongoing treatments.  We currently need to raise over 1,000,000 Israeli Shekel (about $280,000 USD) to cover Pe'er's treatments and medications.  No gift is too small, and we truly appreciate any contributions more than we can adequately express in this brief letter.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

Israel, David, Hen, and Pe'er33609548_1539117331699265_r.jpeg
