Rachashei Lev, which began in 1989 is the leading organization providing services to cancer-stricken children and their families.
In recent years cancer has surpassed heart disease as the most costly diseases in terms of number of cases and overall mortality. Every day in hospitals all around Israel, new cancer cases are diagnosed, leaving patients facing difficult choices and grim futures. Most difficult, are the many pediatric cases – children whose greatest prior challenges were homework and making friends are now forced to endure the rigors of disease and hospitalization.
Founded to be by the side of cancer-stricken children while they go through the hospital treatment, Rachashei Lev hopes to alleviate much of the suffering experienced by children and their families as possible. By alleviating other concerns, Rachashei Lev’s hope is to leave children and their families with all the strength needed to battle cancer.
