Hi,
my name is Tehilla Porat and I’m 18 years old.
Around two years ago I began to have very severe pains in my stomach every time I ate. After a difficult year of unimaginable suffering, I was diagnosed with SMA, a rare and life-threatening syndrome that causes food to lodge in the beginning of the intestines. Not only does it cause extreme pain, but the lack of nutrition also causes a general deterioration of the body.

On my bad days I am so weak that I am bedridden and can’t do everyday activities like dressing or brushing my teeth without help. It goes without saying that I can't participate in school, so I was absent for the last year and a half of high school.

I was in and out of various hospitals, I was with a NJ tube (nasojejunal ) for various periods and I am still undergoing a very long rehabilitation process that includes many ups and downs. I have to fight all the time to keep getting better and even then it can always turn into a life-threatening situation. I must be constantly vigilante about how and what I eat and I am not allowed to fast even on Yom Kippur.

The long term treatments and drugs cost a lot of money that we do not have. My mother is the only breadwinner in the house because our father fled overseas 11 years ago and left our mother an Aguna for 8 years.

Please, anyone who reads this letter - donate and help me recover! Thanks to you and your donation, I can continue to receive the treatments and medications and achieve a normal daily functioning.
