Shay-Lee Cohen (4 years old) is fighting cancer since early this year. Shay-Lee came to Somerset with his parents (Meirav and Liron) and his brother (Ilay, 6) and grandmother Aliza to receive radiation therapy treatment at Procure Center in Somerset NJ. The family will stay here a couple of months, starting July 7th 2015.
In Israel, Shay-Lee loves to play Lego and soccer, Ride his bike and rollerblades, watch movies, paint, swim and many other activities children do in an Israeli Kibutz. Ilay also likes to swims and practice Capoeira, and most likely to play with other kids. Both brothers love to play video games and Sony Playstation.
MyChild’sCancer, in cooperation with “Circle of Hope” (run by Chabad in Hillsborough), would like to invite our communities to support our families. If you would like to get involved, here are a few things you can do:
Update: Upon completing Shay-Lee’s radiation treatment in NJ, the family has returned to Israel on Sep 30th of 2015 to continue with his cancer treatment in Israel. A few more months will be needed to estimate the effectiveness of treatment received here in the U.S. however his doctors are very optimistic.
We are glad to say that despite the hurdles of the treatment, the family was able to enjoy most of their free time here, largely thanks to the amazing support from the local community. They were moved by it and said that it made a big difference in their lives at such challenging times. They are forever grateful for all the love and support they have received.
On behalf of the Cohen family, MyChild’sCancer would like to send a big THANK YOU to all our supporters.
May you always be on the giving side.
