'They cook yummy food and send it to us,' she says, her large brown eyes gazing straight into the eyes of the viewer.

A heartbreaking letter made its way to the public this morning, after a young mother was forced to tell her tragic story. Chana Gad of Tel Tzion spends her days at the hospital bedside of her husband Assaf. Assaf is suffering from cancer.

“It has been very painful to see what was once a strong young man become so frail,” reads campaign text. “He has lost his hair. He is barely recognizable.”

What is perhaps more painful than the treatments themselves, however, is the poverty that they have subjected their children to. In a difficult-to-watch video, little Tzippy addresses the camera.

“They cook us yummy food and bring it,” she says, describing the help the family is lucky to receive from volunteers.

Their situation has now taken on a new sense of urgency, as the Gad family desperately need new funds to cover Assaf’s life-saving treatments. A fund to save his life, and preserve his family’s dignity, has been opened on the Chesed Fund.

Donations are also being accepted for other families supported by The Israel Cancer Support Network, an organization that funds treatments, food, and transportation for those suffering from cancer.
