Financial help was needed to tide the family over while waiting for disability allowances to be processed. 

D., lives in Israel’s southern region, with her husband and one of her adult children, who has lived with them since he was injured in a terror attack. Recently diagnosed with breast cancer, she has used all of her sick days from her work and is waiting for disability payments from Bituach Leumi (Israel’s National Insurance Institute). The family is living solely on her retired husband’s small pension and is having trouble making ends meet. A Lemonade Fund grant is helping to tide them over while she is undergoing treatment.
