GILI'S STORY: A YOUNG ISRAELI WOMAN IN SEARCH OF A MEDICAL INTERVENTION 
 
Gili is a personable and delightful young 38 year old Israeli woman and former officer in the IDF. My wife, Lois, and I have developed a very close relationship with Gili. For several years, Gili has been battling a severe undiagnosed rare GI and pelvic condition which causes devastating and debilitating digestive problems. Gili has been all over Israel, Germany, the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins seeking medical treatment. Gili has had numerous tests, colonoscopy's, blood work and MRI's over the years at several different hospitals. However, doctors at those hospitals were unable to diagnose Gili's condition.
 
My wife, Lois, and  I first met Gili when she reached out to the community for assistance while she was seeking treatment in Baltimore. We have since provided Gili with both financial and emotional support and are now overseeing her care. With the encouragement of a local Baltimore doctor, we arranged for her to relocate to the Cleveland Clinic where medical staff at the Cleveland Clinic believe that Gili requires complicated and expensive surgery in order  to treat her rare GI and pelvic condition.
 
Gili is now  waiting to have the surgery. However, Gili can not afford to pay for these doctors and especially has no funds to pay for the surgery which she desperately needs. She is also unable to work. Without insurance and no income, Gili may not be able to have the surgery which would be devastating.
 
Understandably, Gili's emotional state has deteriorated as she continues to suffer from this terrible condition. She has a long  and uncertain road ahead of her and is in dire need of a medical intervention. 
 
Gili's mother traveled to Cleveland from Israel and has been in the United States for months in order  to accompany Gili to her doctor appointments and provide support. However, in due time, Gili's mother will need to return to Israel as she has been out of work.  Unfortunately, when her mother returns to Israel, Gili will be in Cleveland all alone with no family and no insurance. As you can imagine, it will be very frightening and lonely for Gili to be in a foreign country all by herself  with a complicated medical history.
 
Her mother in Israel had to sell her house in order to pay for Gili's growing medical expenses. Yet, the  funds obtained from the sale of her mother's house are pracatically exhausted with all of the medical expenses that Gili has had to incur and the surgery will exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars. Gili also needs to be able to pay for her apartment where she is currently residing during her stay at the Cleveland Clinic as she could be in Cleveland for an extended period of time while seeking treatment.
 
My wife and I offered to set up this ChesedFund drive in order to help Gili raise funds to have this surgery and pay for her living expenses.
 
Please help save Gili's life. Kindly share this worthy cause with other caring individuals. Any contribution from the community at large to assist Gili in paying for her medical and living expenses would be greatly appreciated.  On behalf of Gili and her grateful family, thank you for your kind concern and interest in Gili's welfare. 
 
May Gili have a speedy recovery soon.
