Support the Islams (Medical Bills)

Calling on our community to support the Islams - Raheem, Sophie, Leila, Ife, Rahim, Ali, and a new addition whom we have yet to meet.

On Thursday, April 10, 2014, Rahim (pictured below), a 5th grader at Universal Institute Charter School, was diagnosed with leukemia at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.



United in faith, #TeamIslam is ready to fight for Rahim's recovery, but we know the journey ahead may be a long and trying one; especially as Sophie prepares for the arrival of the new baby.

Please contribute so this family can focus on what matters - supporting eachother! As you know, Raheem would literally give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He'd be the first one donating to a cause like this, even for a stranger.

Give whatever you can to help relieve the financial and emotional burden that pending medical bills will likely cause.  Kindly share this request with your networks as well.

The Islams appreciate your prayers, positive thoughts, and generosity during this challenging time.

Let's rally together to show them the true meaning of #PhillySupportsPhilly.
