Our Mission

ZSRF Mission

Mr. and Mrs. Ziegler know only too well the hardships that a family experiences when a member is stricken with a cancer illness. Over the past 26 years, Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund has touched the lives of thousands of patients and their families, by easing their overwhelming burden.They  dispense financial help providing for many important needs.

The loss of their young son Shlome was the impetus that set this dynamic organization in motion.¬† In 1987, after a three year battle with leukemia, Shlome passed away, in the prime of his life. Wise beyond his years, Shlome pleaded with his father, shortly before his passing, to fulfill a heartrending request. “Tatty, don’t forget me. Please do something to help others who suffer as I do, in my memory.”

Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund was thus founded with the mission of creating an island of tranquility for cancer patients and their families, amidst the turmoil of their storm. Patients who receive help to alleviate the extra burdens that accompany a cancer illness are better equipped to courageously battle their illness. Today, Zichron Shlome is a major Chessed organization serving myriads of families.

Zichron Shlome’s mandate is that that no one should ever suffer alone.
