Welcome to My Page

Etai Lahav | Brooklyn, NY

Last summer, my friend's six-year-old daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Today, thanks in no small part to God, her team of doctors, her amazing parents, her great attitude, and Chai Lifeline / Camp Simcha (where she was a camper), she is doing very well. At the end of the summer I committed myself to joining Bike4Chai this upcoming year in her honor.

Then this winter, my wife's cousin's two-year-old son was diagnosed with Leukemia. We are praying for a full recovery.

So this summer, in their honor, I will be biking 180 miles through 3 states to Camp Simcha, an extraordinary overnight camp that gives children with cancer a vacation from sickness. A summer in camp restores their spirits and renews their determination to fight!

The ride won't be easy, but neither is life for a child with cancer or other serious illness. Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special, are Chai Lifeline's flagship programs. Every year these two camps offer 420 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To learn more about the camps, visit campsimcha.org.

I will be biking to camp on Wednesday and Thursday, August 16th & 17th. My objective is to raise at least $18,000 by then and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Please contribute by clicking on the donate button now.

Thank you for supporting me and doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment and aftermath of serious pediatric illness.

Best Regards,
Etai
