A Sister

Dear Mrs. Ziegler,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing just to let you know what a life saver you have been for my sister these past few months.

To put it briefly, since their one and a half year old daughter went in for emergency brain surgery, things have not been “normal”. Running to doctors, chemotherapy scans and painstaking decisions – became the norm.

Now the child is over four בלע"ה and still undergoing intensive treatment, with side effects such as vomiting, nausea, sleeplessness and fatigue.  She is sometimes too weak to walk, and must be held and carried around.  It goes without saying that there is not much time and emotional energy to run a regular house- cooking, cleaning, laundry...etc. especially since the other three (young) children  also need care.
Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund has been a tremendous help - with providing her the ability to receive proper help to maintain her house and giving her the peace of mind that her house is under control.  You were very generous when we called you to help and we appreciate your willingness to continue helping my sister. We know of no other organization like yours – and you have a special z’chus because the assistance you provide is irreplaceable with anything else. You provided my sister with a measure of stability and calm when everything seemed to be caving in on her.

We hope and daven that her precious four year old should have a Refuah Shelaima, and that we should not have to take more from you. But for now, thanks a million!!!

Name withheld to protect my sister’s privacy
Best wishes!

Dear Mrs. Ziegler,

I would like to express my appreciation for your support during this turbulent time in our life. My son B”H is on the mend and hopefully slated for a full recovery after his surgery for thyroid cancer in Texas last June and his follow up visit to receive the iodine treatment this week.

Although I contacted many organizations both Jewish and non-Jewish, Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund was the only one who responded positively.

May you be zoche to do many more Mitzvos until Moshiach comes and the Rofeh lechal bassar will ensure that we do not need anymore organizations.

Dear Mrs. Ziegler,

I want to thank you for the check that I received from Zichron Shlome. As I battle this exhausting disease, I give thanks to you for making asking for assistance a simple process. It is not easy to ask for help after being independent my entire life, but the stage IV metastatic cancer together with difficult economic times make my situation even more of a struggle.

Thank you and Tizku L’Mitzvos,
E. K.

Dear Mrs. Ziegler,

When our child was diagnosed with cancer, our lives screeched to a halt. All our thoughts activities and emotions revolved around diagnostic tests, trips to and from hospitals, and confronting the various challenges of our new reality.  Business, bill paying, home, automobile repairs, housekeeping, recreational activities for the other children and all other “non-essentials” were put on the back burner.  Our community is blessed with many wonderful people and organizations who were extremely helpful to us. As the treatment protocol had commenced, we had the daunting new challenge of rebuilding our lives with some semblance of normalcy for the whole family.  It was at this juncture that Zichron Shlome really stepped up to the plate and helped us out tremendously. In addition to material support, the knowledge that there are people such as this was a great source of Chizuk.  You truly helped us to get our lives back together.

Very truly yours,
B. E.
