Exactly one year ago, our precious son, Yossi, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Besides the shock and horror that consumed us, we were overwhelmed by the prospect of making Pesach which was 3 weeks away, as well as dealing with the day to day running of our household and other children.
Our fears and worries on these technical issues were immediately assuaged as the Jewish Caring Network immediately came to our rescue. Pesach became a non-issue as JCN provided us with cleaning help, food and paper goods, gifts for our kids, and financial help.
But their help did not end there. For many, many months, as Yossi underwent treatment and we were traveling between Baltimore and DC and Philly, they were constantly there for us - flowers for Shabbos and Yom Tov, birthday and holiday gifts for each of us, a women's getaway respite, continuous cleaning help, meals, babysitting, entertainment for the kids, etc. Honestly, everything was such a blur I can't even remember everything they've done for us!
It was very reassuring to know that JCN was always there for us. There was nothing that we needed that they didn't try to provide for us. JCN truly helped make a very challenging time for our family much easier. We felt very loved and cared for and it made a HUGE difference knowing we weren't alone with our difficulties.
Please give as generously to Jewish Caring Network as you can so they can continue to be a lifeline for families going through life-threatening illnesses.
