Family members receiving support
“Thank you for everything Chai Lifeline has done for my family. From when my 6 year old boy was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer, I felt supported by your team. Sara was the first face I met and she was so welcoming and kind. Sara let me know about Chai Lifeline and in the whirlwind of everything I felt blessed. She connected me with Alana my case manager who has been an unbelievable support. Alana has helped give me strength in these dark times. She has helped me build a circle of support when I need it most. It’s the little things that get you through. That early morning check in to see how your doing after countless days at the hospital, that fresh food that fuels you to get through the day, the toys that always bring a smile to Sweet Ethan’s face, the family model which includes my daughter Chloé to and that connection to the Jewish community which I thought I had lost. I’m so grateful that Chai Lifeline exists because when you have a child with cancer your life stops abruptly, yet you have to keep going. Chai Lifeline is that glimmer of support during this time. ”
