Laurie's Kidney Transplant is a Go!

Laurie has a donor and it looks like her transplant will be very soon!  We are so grateful!

She will be in the hospital and home recuperating for a total of two months and will therefore be unable to work.  

I am launching a campaign to raise $10,000 in order to cover her and the children's expenses for that time (Zahara and Moshe live with Laurie and they live on/count on her income as sole provider).

Naturally I will be in touch once we have the final date for the surgery.  

May we continue to hear good news,
