The Lemonade Fund was notified of a family in the Sharon area that needs help. The mother, suffering from late stage breast cancer, is in intensive care. The father said that what he and his children want most right now is for people to pray (and recite psalms) for his wife. He said it would comfort them greatly to know that this is happening. His wife’s name is Bracha Rachel Yetta bat Hindel. (The name Bracha was added this week.) At some later point we may be called on to help the family in other ways, such as with meals or financial assistance, but for now they are asking only for prayers. Thank you.
A good friend of the Lemonade Fund, Etana Sarah bat Hadassah, is herself undergoing a biopsy today to determine the extent of the spread of cancer to her abdomen and liver. She has asked that we pray for her and do good deeds. She is an amazing woman who has never complained, has only asked, during each bout with this illness, that we pray and do good to others, in her name. She may see this as part of her ‘medicine,’ and it has been working. Many have been helped, thanks to her. She has been fighting this disease for a while and we are with her in the hope that our actions can help her continue in her fight.
