A few years ago my dear friend was diagnosed with stage 3 thyroid cancer. During the surgery, the surgeon found the tumor was wrapped around her laryngeal nerve, the nerve that innervates the  vocal cord. The surgeon made a decision to cut the nerve, so that he could remove the cancer that was surrounding the tumor.

My dear friend was left to live with a paralyzed vocal cord. Not fun at all. I am witness to her daily struggles around swallowing, breathing, and even speaking.  It is difficult to stand by and see her daily pain and suffering.  

One of the most painful and terrifying symptom is something her doctors call ''vocal cord dysfunction'' (or paradoxical vocal fold motion); her vocal cords routinely close up, causing her to cough and choke. My friend has these choking episodes multiple times a day. It is agony to witness them. Her children routinely have to call hatzolah, and they live in daily fear for her life. 

Fortunately, my dear friend has been able to locate the specialized therapies that help relieve the choking and restore her breathing to normal. The  treatments need to be maintained on a weekly basis. These treatments are not covered by free insurance. (The providers do not accept any insurance at all). The cost of weekly treatment is prohibitive.

Being constantly oxygen-deprived leaves my dear friend in a terribly weakened state, compromising her ability to function as a mother and breadwinner. 

There are additional details that make my friend's plight utterly gut-wrenching though I am limited in how much I can share here. I have accompanied her to every doctor's visit and I have seen doctors weep for her. So young, so much to live for, and the only barrier is money!

My dear friend continues to need life-saving treatment.  And you can help. Please make a donation, however large or small.    

If you have a property or home in a country setting and are in a position to offer my friend a short or long stay there, this would be very meaningful to her. The pollution in the city seems to aggravate her vocal cord spasms which lead to the choking incidents. Clean air and quiet serene surroundings are of great benefit in the healing process.  

Please consider donating anything you can, as well as sharing this crowdfunder with your friends. Your kindness goes a long way. 

Her dear children need her to get better and to stay alive and thrive. 

Verification documentation available upon request. 

May the z'chus of this mitzvah serve to keep you healthy and well ad maya v'esrim.

Tizka l'mitzvos!

Update as of August 13, 2017:   Last week my dear friend's choking episodes intensified exponentially.  I accompanied her to a world-renowned specialist in Philadelphia (Yasher koach to all who've donated offline, so that my friend was able to pay for the specialist visit a fee of $1,800).  The specialist was able to identify a few issues in her throat, vocal cords, and trachea, that explain the choking incidents. Though it was not surprising to see a growth in her trachea, and though it was sad to see it, it gave me a clue to just how much pain and suffering my friend is in and has been in until now.

The specialist informed my friend that in addition to his specialized treatments, trauma therapy is a crucial  component of recovery from her illness.   According to the specialist, unresolved trauma aggravates the condition. It is in fact so that my friend endured a horrific trauma involving having her door broken down by three gunmen.  She has yet to recover from that trauma. 

My friend is now in a better position to proceed with targeted treatments to restore her breathing to normal. She has a lineup of treatments as well as trauma therapy, and is ready to proceed as soon as she has the funds to do so. 

My friend has endured two prior cancers, traumas, pain and suffering. Hashem yerachem!  Let us respond to this call for help with utmost kindness and generosity!

Your donation is a powerful opportunity to fulfill the mitzva of  פיקוח נפש , and to ensure that my dear friend will be well enough to walk each of her children to their chuppah in good health in due time. 

In this z'chus may you be געבענטשט with a g'mar chasima tova and a vibrant, healthy life !
