Plea for Help

I was asked to post about this urgent call for help:
Dear Friend:

My, neighbor, Zev Wolff, a 5-year-old boy, needs your help now.

This beautiful and bright child has been battling a rare form of pediatric cancer known as Neuroblastoma since he was 3. Following nine months of intensive treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital (MSKH), Zev was in remission. Fourteen months later, he relapsed. Zev has had to undergo major surgery, chemotherapy and radiation; nearly a year later, Zev's scans look good.

Unfortunately, Neuroblastoma has an extremely high rate of relapse.

Zev needs another drug to stay in complete remission. His little body is fighting the drug 3F8 with which he's currently being treated. Currently, a new is being developed. The improved drug could help cure Zev and 300 other children with this disease. But the new drug needs to be manufactured, at a cost of almost five million dollars.

Researchers have developed techniques that can be used to make antibodies like 3F8 more human-like which will be more effective and better tolerated by patients. A portion of the work will be carried out at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital Cancer Center, and part contracted to a small pharmaceutical company

Large pharmaceutical companies do not see the profit in healing only a few hundred children annually. We are appealing to you to leverage your influence, relationships and support to drive the humanization of 3F8 to benefit the several hundred children, like Zev, who fall victim to Neuroblastoma every year. When this antibody is better tolerated and more effective, and when it can be manufactured on a scale that is economical, the lives of more children will be saved from this deadly cancer.

Helen and Ranan Wolff, Zev’s parents are grateful to be a part of this community. Time and time again you have shown your generosity to the Wolff family. The meals, babysitting, blood donations, words of support.

Now I am asking for your generosity again.

Please, open your hearts to Zev Wolff. Zev has come so far, he's been so brave and so strong.

Please contact Dr. Asher Mansdorf at amansdorf@aol.com for more information on how you can help.
Please do anything you can to help.

So, OM. I'm surprised you didn't post about the elephant in the Red Shul today. Rabbi Feitman had no problem speaking up about how much he hates Orthomom, so how could he allow UOJ/Paul Manilow/Feivy Mendelowitz such polite treatment in his shul? His kids should have known better than to bring him here. I hope someone informed the Rav as to his real identity at some point. The man should not be getting an aliya in my shul.

Yeah, UOJ was in the Red Shul today. So I guess Rabbi Feitman thinks it's ok for Paul Manilow to be mevaze every Gadol we have - but not ok for Om and her readers to question the motives of the 5T Vaad.

That's certainly no reason to draw attention from a sick boy in our community, who could use all of our help.

To anonymous #1 and #2. Shame on you for using this urgent "Plea for help" spot to critisize Rabbi Feitman and to focus on who came into our shul, not just your shul. You should better be davening for the health of your children so that there should never be a "Plea for help" for them.

4:43, while you are correct in your assessment that 1 & 2's using this thread to "comment" on an unrelated situation is in very bad taste, your kllallah is misplaced too.

There was no kllallah intended. It was a "plea" for people of our shul and community to focus on davening for the refuah shelaima for Zev, instead of throwing stones into unrelated windows.

If you have a problem with something that happened in "your shul" (a shul is a tzibbur, and by definition isn't owned by a single individual), then you should approach someone from the shul. Or come speak to me personally.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Even if this was the appropriate forum, whatever happened to the concept of being "dan l'kaf zechus". I'm sure he didn't come into the shul wearing a sign identifying himself as UOJ. If he had, and if the rav in question was aware of UOJ's reputation and history, I'm sure he would have taken appropriate action.

This thread is supposed to be about a little boy. Let's keep it on the level. My feeling is ignore the crazies and they will go away.

So, lets all daven and help with a refuah for Zev.

There are worse people than UOJ davening in "that" shul anyway.

Dear moderator,
please post a new blog concerning what happened in Gourmet Glatt recently. Approximately two weeks ago there was mistakenly allowed by the mashgiach of the five towns the brand "bushs best" original baked beans which has in its ingrediants bacon meat, versus the vegetarian brand which is certified kosher. The outrage is that the Vaad of 5 towns has not alerted the community of this mishap, and for those who purchased this brand must kasher their dishes and utensils immediately bec. of the treif meat

Shame on you. This thread is about chizuk that a family in need is looking for and you treif it up with rechilus.

Make your own blog and say all you want.

Great! Leave it to one ASSHOLE with pork and beans on his brains to direct this thread away from the topic. He or she is about as useful as this Wendrow slime.

How about in Zev's Z'chus we all stay away from bashing others and simply try to work on ourselves.
