An Israeli couple has been going through a harrowing episode after their gorgeous tiny baby, Shimmy, was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. It began a few terrifying minutes after Shimmy’s circumcision, when his mother was horrified to notice a puddle of blood growing underneath him. After a series of tests, the baby was diagnosed with hemophilia, a rare and life-threatening genetic disorder that prevents his tiny little body from clotting blood properly.

“Our entire world caved in. From the joy of a newborn son - to hospitals, medications and treatments with no end in sight…”

Without proper and timely treatment, little Shimmy’s life is in danger, and his parents are unable to pay for the hefty expensive medical treatments necessary to save his life. They have turned to the public with an emotional request to help them fund the life-saving treatment their baby needs to survive:

“We on our own have no way to pay this enormous sum. My wife hasn't been able to go back to work after taking maternity leave, and I myself have had to cut back on my hours to help out at home. We are urgently in need of over $55,000 to pay for the surgery and save Shimmy's life as soon as possible.Please help us.”

Although their campaign has been up for several days, it is devastatingly far from its goal. The next couple of days will determine whether this family’s precious baby will live, or if they will face the indescribable pain of losing their own newborn child.
