Successful Frum Female Lawyer’s Biggest Mistake

[COMMUNICATED] Ever since she was a little girl, Sara knew what she wanted to be. From a young age Sara Gottesman possessed excellent communication skills, incredible analytical skills and a burning desire to help others. So when it came choosing her career path, it was clear that she was a natural lawyer. The Israeli-born Sara finished seminary, attended a women’s only college in Eretz Yisroel and immediately received internship offers upon graduating. She eventually got married and had three beautiful children who admired their mother’s incredible strength of character, resilience, and poise.

But even the best lawyers can make mistakes.

Several weeks ago, Sara began to suffer from very painful and sporadic spasms in her back.  Eventually, she received a CT scan in Hadassah Hospital where to the entire Gottesman family’s horror, they were told that their 48-year-old mother has stage 4 lung cancer. Sara’s husband and three kids Aidel, Mordechai and Nesanel report that they are all in a state of shock.

“It’s been surreal for all of us,” shared Aidel several days ago.

“We are watching the woman who we used to think was invincible growing weaker with every passing day. She tries to be brave for us, but when we go back home after visiting her, we can hear her sobbing quietly in her room.”

Twenty-year-old Aidel shares how her life has been full of ups and downs, and how her mother has always been her constant. But now, Aidel admits that she can’t sleep at night for the fear of what heartbreaking news she may wake to every morning. The saddest part is that the doctors know exactly which kind of treatments can Save Sara’s life, she isn’t working her family is very much struggling financially and the family has nowhere near the amount of money needed to afford the treatments that her life directly depends on.

Several days ago Aidel opened a chesedfund page where she shared a heartbreaking message with the public: “My mother has always been there for me, through everything, and I can’t lose her. The only thing standing in the way of her staying alive is money. Please, have rachmanus on me and my siblings and help us save her life.”

The Gottesman family is praying that they will raise enough funds in time. They are currently very far from their goal, but they know that anything is possible with Hashem’s help. To send them a much-needed message of hope, click here.
