Ive received the following so many times in the past few days, both from local friends and neighbors...and now even from bloggers in the US, so I decided to post it and do what I can to help out.
While I don't know the family personally, I do know for a fact that this baby has this condition, and the people behind the campaign are serious and respected individuals.
Six weeks ago, Gili Rossler was born with a rare defect, which causes severe tracheal constriction -- and only one lung.The combination of these two conditions is extremely dangerous and causes a constant deterioration in her ability to breathe and to the supply of oxygen to her body.A surgical procedure has been recently developed for the treatment of this condition.Only two medical centers in the world have experience in the performance of this procedure:One in London (where three procedures were performed with a 70% success rate) and one in Chicago (ten procedures with an 80% success rate).Under the instructions of the treating physician Dr. Tommy M. Schonfeld, Director of Pediatric ICU, Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel, the procedure must be performed urgently!The cost of this procedure, including the necessary ambulatory flight comes to about $600,000.We welcome any and all contributions (before Hoshana Raba 5769 – the day Yom Kippur’s verdicts are ratified):Please send cash or checks (even postdated) to “Save Gili”, or wire-transfers to Mizrachi Bank, Account No. 176373, Branch No. 483 (Karne Shomron).Israeli donors please advise if you wish “Section 46” invoices for tax deduction purposes.When transferring funds from the USA to the Mizrachi Bank account, please use the SWIFT Code: MIZBILITUSA donors interested in eligibility for tax deductions, please make out checks to"American Friends of Kedumim"At the bottom of the check, note: Memo : Saving GiliAnd please mail the checks to this address:American Friends of KedumimP.O.
