Help me help my mom with cancer
« on: May 29, 2013, 01:52:56 PM »
About 5 months ago my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer, since then she has been unable to work.
She is currently getting chemotherapy , she is having a very difficult time affording every day necessities.

I just noticed on the forum a fellow DDFer raised some money for a choson & kallah through a raffle. I will be copying and pasting the rules from that thread.

Here is the plan of action for all our generous DDF'ers:

I am raffling off $100 cash, or more.

Every donation of $18 is one chance to win.

Every donation (after the first 10) of $18 brings the jackpot up $5.

So if 11 people donate, the jackpot will be $105, 20 people donate, the jackpot will be $200.

There is no cap on the jackpot, there is no limit on how much you can donate.

The entire sum (less the jackpot) will be given directly to my mother.

If you are interested in sponsoring the jackpot, please PM me.

The jackpot will be drawn Thursday night 6/5/2013 12:00PM EST


To participate:

Send your donation via Chase QP or Google Wallet

xodus8@gmail.com

Please include your DDF user name in the memo.

After you donate write your name in the wiki in one of the spots provided.

LETS MAKE THE JACKPOT GROW.


Also if anyone knows of any Jewish organizations that help pay for co payments and a orginaztion that can provide her wih a wig would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all and Tziku Limitzvoth!

No offense, but I am not sure if that many people know you in real life.

If you want to have same success as Yeki89, provide a few references of heimishe organizations or rabanim, or at least 3-4 active forum members that know the situation.

Just my opinion, feel free to disagree.

My rabbi knows about my mom's illness, My mom doesn't want to tell him or anyone that she is having financial difficulties. I can PM 2-3 members an official report from beth israel that says her diagnosis.

Do you know anyone here on the forums?

 It would be really nice if we could help you out but I'm pretty sure you'll raise more money if someone can vouch for you.
May she have a refuah Shleima.

They could / will help out or redirect you to an organization that could help.
(they help with meals, transportation and possibly help you get insurance to cover some of the co-pays etc)
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals
