I Am An Orphan, Fighting A Vicious Form Of Brain Cancer. The Doctors Say I May Only Have A Few Weeks Left. Please, Please Help Me.

Fund ID: 1805

UPDATE 26/04: Tears are streaming down my face as I write this. The doctors have just told me that they must operate NOW, but I still haven’t gathered enough funds to pay for the operation. I am so scared. Please help me reach my goal so they can save my life and please, please daven for me. Thank you.


My name is Meira Guttenstein. When I was eleven, my Daddy got brain cancer, and five months later, we lost him. Then, when I was fifteen, my mother suddenly had a heart attack… And just like that, I lost her too. I was an orphan at only 15 years old.

A few weeks ago, I started suffering from terrible headaches. I went to the hospital for a test, and what the doctors found stirred up dark memories– They told me that I had a rare kind of brain tumor.

It’s so hard for me to grasp all of this. The treatment costs a tremendous amount and as an orphan, I don’t have a penny to my name. I know you don’t know me…But please know this—All I have is you. I am in a hospital fighting for my life, terrified, with no one holding my hand or whispering in my ear that everything will be okay. Please donate here to help save my life.

Hashem should bless you with only health and brochos. Thank you,

Meira Guttenstein
