The Mashgiach of the Ponevezh Yeshiva, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Shapira, released a video appeal Sunday, looking to raise funds on behalf of his wife, who has been stricken with a rare, incapacitating illness.

Rabbi Shapira's wife, Rabbanit Shapira, was diagnosed three years ago with a rare neurological disease that has effectively paralyzed her. Unable to move or complete basic daily tasks, the Rav and his wife have searched for a cure, but to no avail.

The Rav recently received rabbinical guidance to seek out a highly unusual solution: There is reportedly a set of treatments available in Colorado which could save the esteemed Rabbanit's life. However, the treatments cost a total $70,000.

The revered family is unable to pay this sum, and unwilling to allow the Rabbanit Shapira's life to end due to a lack of funds. For this reason, Rav Shapira has recorded a moving video [below] and opened a fundraising campaign. The Mashgiach and his family have less than a month to raise the funds needed to save the Rabbanit's life.
