A Lemonade grant helped H. manage financially, and offered relief to focus on healing and mourning what she lost on October 7. 


H.,48, was evacuated with her husband and son from a Gaza border kibbutz after the October 7th massacre in Israel. Another son is a combat soldier on active duty. Soon after H. was diagnosed with breast cancer. She began chemotherapy immediately, followed by surgery and radiation. H. is unable to work in her emotional and physical condition, and her job at the kibbutz is on hold anyway until it is rebuilt. The financial burdens of their situation, as well as  the challenges of their crowded temporary housing, weigh heavily on the family’s emotional and financial well-being. A Lemonade Fund grant helped the family weather the financial burden and offered emotional relief so H. could focus on healing and mourning.
