He thought he was losing his mind. The real story is terrifying.

Chaim Wax has had a whirlwind of a month.

When he started forgetting the most bizarre things such as his phone number, he never thought that a blood test in the hospital would leave him with life-changing results – he is suffering from a growth in his brain stem. While that is enough for a boy in his lower twenties to be processing for years, Chaim doesn’t have the time – his doctors have told him that the growth must be removed immediately…

Or he won’t make it.

Chaim’s mother, Sigalit, has decided to publicize his story on chesedtoday.com in the hope that Klal Yisroel will come together to help save Chaim’s life. 

“My son, my bechor, is my life, and I want to do everything I can to make sure he can live a full and happy life. I know in my heart that he can go so very far in life, if he can only survive this. Heaven knows I would trade places with him in an instant if I could. I ask you, I beg of you, to please help us reach our goal to save Chaim’s life beezras Hashem. And please, please daven for Chaim Mordechai Ben Sigalit. 

We have had very limited resources, we are in a very tight financial situation and cannot afford the treatment costs. It is so difficult to see my son in pain and to be unable to help him.”

The Wax family’s story is verified with several hamlatzahs, including a touching letter from Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi. Click here to save Chaim Mordechai Ben Sigalit.
