I am writing to ask you to please help my dear friends Devorah and Yaacov Cohen. They are like our younger brother and sister. (I actually made their Shidduch.) I could go on and on to tell you of their sterling attributes, but we do not have time. And certainly, their 6 year son, Refael Elisha, who the doctors have given up on, has little time.
After an agonizing year of chemo, radiation and other treatments trying to combat his cancerous brain tumor, the doctors say "there is nothing more we can do for him". But we who love this little tike are holding out hope for a new treatment called Antineoplaston Therapy at the Burzyinski clinic. However, the FDA pulled their approval for this treatment in 2012 pending further clinical trials. We are told that the FDA is nearing approval to resume this treatment, but Refael Elisha does not have time to wait.
We are petitioning the FDA to grant a compassionate use exemption to Refael Elisha for this therapy. We need 100,000 people to join this petition to the White House by January 2. (At this point, we need about 150 people per hour.)
Please join with us trying to save Refael Elisha Cohen. Taking five minutes of your time might give Refael Elisha years and years of life to live. Please sign the petition at
and pass on this message to your caring friends.
G-d bless you,
Yeshara Gold (Jerusalem, Israel)
