• Chana Deserves to See, Make it Happen

    Chana, the first born to a young Chabad couple, was born blind, an expensive transplant is her only hope to see and develop as a normal child. Your help is needed. In his letter, Rabbi Menachem M. Gluckowsky urges all to generously donate to this worthy cause • Full Letter, Donate

    Chana is the first born to her young parents (a family of Anash that I personally know). Their overwhelming joy of parenthood was deeply disturbed when the doctors informed them that their child has a condition called Congenital Corneal Opacities. In their opinion little Chana had no chance of ever seeing.


    With no doctor In Israel giving her any hope, her loving parents wasted no time and spared no effort. After much research they found Dr. Gerald Zaidman at the Westchester Medical Center, a specialist in corneal transplants. They were advised that he may be able to help. Although their insurance company refused to cover any expenses involved, the family traveled to New York to meet with Dr. Zaidman. After examining Chana’s eyes he agreed to perform the surgery and was very optimistic that the surgery will be successful.

    One year ago the transplant on one eye was successfully performed, thanks to generous donors from around the world. And the miracle occurred, Chana began to see from one eye!

    Chana is still over %75 blind!

    Although the surgery was more successful than expected, Chana is still over %75 blind! A second transplant and expensive treatments and therapy can grant her the vision needed to function and develop as a normal child.

    to make this a reality we must raise $70,000, to cover the high costs of the transplant and other medical expenses not covered by insurance.

    I urge you to open your heart and generously take part in this tremendous Mitzva. After all, we are all one family. We cannot let our daughter miss her opportunity to see with both of her eyes. I am confident that together we will make this dream a reality.
