My dear brothers and sisters,

I was ejected from the vehicle onto the highway & then hit by another vehicle while I lay there helplessly.                                                            

My smile once lit the room. You could have seen my joy at living as I learned about orthodox Judaism and began adopting a religious lifestyle. Unfortunately, everything changed one evening in December of 2016. While my friend drove us home, a drunk driver plowed into the car. The impact caused my friend to lose control of the vehicle. It rolled, throwing me onto the highway and into the path of a second car that ran over me. Six weeks later I awoke from a near-death coma and learned that I had clung to life by a thread.

The hospital diagnosed me with broken ribs, pelvis, and foot, a herniated disc, liver laceration, subdural hematomas, extreme facial disfigurement, and a brain injury that impairs my ability to form short-term memories. I still suffer from recurring bouts of pain. The severity of the physiological and psychological trauma caused me to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. Due to these long-term problems, my employment (and shidduch) prospects are slim to none.

With additional help from friends, my family used all its savings to cover most of the immediate life-and-death medical treatment costs. However, no funds remained to rectify anything else. At this point, I desperately need help with facial reconstruction, in particular, with replacing the loss of eight teeth and restoring function to my right eyelid. Lacking teeth, I am unable to eat solid food, so my nutrition suffers. Since I cannot close my eyelid, my eye is continually dry and irritated, which also interferes with sleeping. But that is only taking a physical perspective. You can only imagine the negative impact such facial disfigurement has on my psychology.

The legal battle is ongoing and complicated by the multiple parties involved. My lawyer says it will take at least several years before the court awards remuneration. I cannot wait for who-knows-how-long to get the medical attention I urgently need. The prosthodontist states the bare minimum for replacing the eight teeth is $15,000. Anything more will go to covering the eyelid surgery and the remaining facial reconstruction.

My smile once brightened the day. Please don’t leave me as a cripple. Please help me smile again.

May you & your family merit all the beautiful blessings written in the Torah.


Thank You, 

Sarah Weinberger                                                                518 303-6526 or 347 267-4789
