Appeal for Help and Prayers

from Binyamin L. Jolkovsky
Editor in Chief, JewishWorldReview.com

On March 31, I included a message atop the daily update about a young mother of 5 -- ages 4-14 -- that is in DIRE need of a double lung transplant. She is a neighbor of mine.

Numerous readers have continued to inquire about her situation. While doctors are often wrong about these sorts of things, they are now giving her about 48 hours to live. PLEASE read the info that follows below just in case there is SOMETHING you can do.

(Prayers are priceless and if you have a spare moment PLEASE pray for her as "Naava bas [daughter of] Frumah Leah")

Naava Katlowitz is blood type AB+, and a Universal Acceptor. The donor, a patient who is declared legally dead but Currently on life support, must be within four flying hours of Pittsburgh. Individuals who suffered a traumatic head injury fit this criteria best.

If you know ANYBODY who might come in contact with these sorts of patients, PLEASE contact them IMMEDIATELY.

If you personally know anybody who could be a potential donor, PLEASE call 1-800-728-3254 (800) SAVE-A-LIFE or email savemymommyslife@aol.com

THANKS for taking the time to read and SPREAD this MESSAGE in any way you can!
(If, Heaven forbid, we were in this situation, we would want everything to be done for us!)
