Jalal, a beloved member of the San Francisco Fire Department, and his family need your assistance, generosity and positive thoughts.  His story is one that is uniquely American  with a definite Bay Area flavor. Jalal immigrated to the USA in 1989 and spent his first years teaching martial arts to children while attending San Francisco State University. After college he began pursuing a career in the Fire Service. In 2005, Jalal realized his dream when he was offered a position as a Firefighter in the city he grew to love. His new career in the SFFD was a blessing not only to Jalal but also his family who depend on him as their sole provider. 

Jalal and his family are currently in the fight of their lives against an enemy that does not discriminate based on race, religion or citizenship.  Cancer.  In mid-Decemeber, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer.  Jalal is currently in the hospital receiving nutrients intravenously to gain strength for his next round of treatment.

The goal of this page is to raise funds for Jalal's young wife and  two toddler age children.  Together, we can ease the financial burden and mental stress that arises at times like these and allow Jalal to focus on his battle to defeat cancer.  Jalal's brother abdelaziz Aineb is named as the beneficiary for this account and will withdraw the funds as necessary for the family.
