[ENDED] The Yahav Family (Somerset, NJ)

Iddo Yahav (4 years and 8 months old) is fighting cancer since November 2014. Iddo came to Somerset with his parents (Liat and Ophir), his sister (Shanny, 11) and brother (Itay, 8) to receive radiationtherapy teatment at Procure Center in Somerset NJ, and Chemotherapy at St. Peter’s hospital in New Brunswick NJ. The family will stay here a couple of months, starting March 2nd 2015.

In Israel, Iddo loves to play Lego and soccer, Itay swims and practice Kick-Box (Muay-Thai), and Shanny is dancing, singing and playing the Guitar. Both Iddo and Itay love to play the Sony Playstation. Both Shanny and Itay love to read.

MyChild’sCancer, in cooperation with “Circle of Hope” (run by Chabad in Hillsborough) and Bikur Holim in Highland Park, 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 Ido’s radiation treatment in NJ, the family has returned to Israel on May 5th of 2015 to complete Ido’s 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 Yahav family, MyChild’sCancer would like to send a big THANK YOU to all our supporters.

May you always be on the giving side.
