Help Save Baby Gili - Video Appeal

In early August 2008, Baby Gili Rossler was born in Israel with a rare tracheal problem, a life-threatening situation that causes severe tracheal constriction -- and only one lung.

The combination of these two conditions is extremely dangerous and causes a constant deterioration in her ability to breathe and to the supply of oxygen to her body.

Her Israeli doctors gave her parents the horrible news that little Baby Gili had no chance to survive.

A surgical procedure has been recently developed for the treatment of this condition.

Only two medical centers in the world have experience in the performance of this procedure:

One in London (where three procedures were performed with a 70% success rate) and one in Chicago (ten procedures with an 80% success rate).

Under the instructions of the treating physician Dr. Tommy M. Schonfeld, Director of Pediatric ICU, Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel, the procedure must be performed urgently!

The cost of this procedure, is prohibitive and only half is covered by Israeli medical insurance, not to mention the necessary ambulatory flights...

For information on helping the family with the costs - please e-mail me at - fully tax-deductable in USA & Israel!

Please pray for Gilli Tzvia Tova Bat Ravit

A Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Quiet New Year to All!
