Communicated: Israeli Family Flies to China in Hopes of Battling ALS

[COMMUNICATED] This week, the Madar family of Jerusalem, will fly to China in search of a new hope. Their mother, Louisa, was diagnosed with ALS 6 months ago. In the half a year that has passed, her mind and body have disintegrated. The infamously painful disease has racked her body and she is now wheelchair-bound, and unable to speak.

The Madars researched and found what so many before them have discovered: Thousands of ALS sufferers have flocked to China for stem cell treatments, and seen miraculous results. The possibility of being treated in China has provided a new life for many who were otherwise told there was no hope.

The Madar family’s flight leaves this week. However they are still unable to pay for the treatments they so desperately need to save Louisa’s life. Heartbreaking video footage shows son Elazar on the verge of tears. “We just want to speak with our mother again,” he says.

Their cause has been picked up by tzedaka organization Kupat Ha’Ir, due to the poverty level of the family and the urgency of their need. Those interested in saving Louisa’s life can donate HERE for a limited time.

    I know this is an ad for tzedakah, but people with ALS shouldn’t be given false hope.

    The Chinese Stem Cell treatment is a scam, clinics/scam artists have been claiming to have a treatment for ALS since at least 2006.

    There is not one documented case of anyone being successful treated for ALS in China.

    The most promising research for ALS is going on in Israel, as the previous comment noted
