Rivkie Joseph was born in Yerushalayim with a congenital heart defect called TETRALOGY OF FALLOT .  She has always known that she would need surgery to correct it once she stopped growing.  She has managed for 20 years with a heart that pumped at around 60% efficiency.

B"H  The doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital saw Rivkie at the end of March and gave her an excellent prognosis for the surgery:  Not only do they believe it will be successful, but they believe that they will not need to put in an artificial valve, which would necessitate Rivkie having to take blood thinners for the rest of her life.  This would make having children dangerous.

However, the doctors have told her that her heart is only operating now at around 40% efficiency.  This means that there is not enough oxygen for her body and her cardiac muscle as well.  Soon her heart will be damaged beyond repair.

The wait list in Israel for this Surgery is currently 10 years. Massachusetts General Hospital can perform the surgery immediatley. The $60,000 will be used for travel, the procedure, and rehab.   The actual cost is considerably more, but many people have already donated generously.

Donations are Tax deductible.   Thank You

Please note:  Rivkie is a Karliner Chasid.  She  is very concerned with her future shidduch, so we respected her wishes not to have her face shown in the video.   Rivkie's parents are not well.  Her mother became 100% disabled 12 years ago, so Rivkie is raising her sisters as well. Her parents. not have the ability to help her in this quest. 

P.S.  Rivkie's mother is pictured below
