Upsherin Party Ended In Disaster

Three-year-old Ushi Itzer and his family were gathered in the living room, excitedly preparing for his upsherin party. The balloons were blown, the food was ready, and presents were piled high. Ushi’s eyes sparkled with excitement as he looked around the room, imagining the fun that he would share with his family. He was finally a big boy.

But then the door opened and Yossi, Ushi’s beloved grandfather, appeared with a look of sorrow on his face. He whispered something into Ushi’s father’s ear. And when his father heard the secret, his face turned ashen. Suddenly, the entire room turned somber. Ushi was scared, and confused. Eventually, the entire room understood- Not only was Yossi, in his mid-fifites diagnosed with cancer. 

Now his wife Orly was diagnosed with cancer as well.

Ushi’s face fell and tears filled his eyes. He had been so excited to share his special day with his parents and grandparents. Everyone in the room was heartbroken for him.

Yossi and Orly, the power couple who had spent the past 20 years of their lives raising a wonderful family together, are now facing a common enemy– cancer. The situation became even more challenging when Orly was no longer able to work, leaving the family with no source of income. With both parents fighting cancer, the Itzers are going through an unimaginable challenge. They need help to pay for medical expenses, provide for their kids, and cover basic living costs. 

Life is fragile, and we wont know which day will be our last. Please donate here to help this beloved couple, whom some of their children are still teenagers, survive the odds. Please give generously and help us make the Itzer family whole again. 

They are on the verge of falling apart and they are desperate for support.
