Over 4 years ago, Sarah Naomi was the recipient of the greatest gift ever - a new heart on the 1st night of Chanukah.

During her ordeal in the hospital and afterwards, our family developed incredibly special relationships with many people who helped us in many ways. We have come to appreciate the special nature of Chai Lifeline as we have come to know other families with challenging medical situations and how they are supported by this amazing organization. It is their rock.

Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha Special have been there for Sarah Naomi as well as our family. She looks forward to 2 weeks every summer when she can enjoy all aspects of life despite her illness. There are no limitations in camp, and she gets to experience utter joy.

This summer, I will bike 180 miles in two days through New Jersey, the Pocono Mountains, and Upstate NY ending in camp on Thursday, August 15th. This is no ordinary cycling event; it’s an exhilarating ride ending at Camp Simcha, a remarkable overnight camp that provides seriously ill children with a vacation from sickness, restoring their spirits and renewing their determination to fight.

The ride won't be easy; 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 430 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To learn more about Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha special, visit campsimcha.org.

As a medical camp, it costs $10,000 per camper, which is raised through donations. My objective is to raise the cost of two campers - $20,000.
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, in doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath of serious pediatric illness.

Best Regards,
Ben
