A zechus for a Refuah Sheleima for two special people in my life.

Chaia Frishman | Far Rockaway, NY

My kids, Efraim Shalom and Shoshana knew all about Camp Simcha way before they worked there for the past few summers. One of Shoshana's closest friends Henny had been telling her about the incredible program for years as she is a camper there. Additionally, my close friend and partner in (legal) crimes for tefilla is now struggling with her own battle. No matter what you can help donate, please keep Shoshana Basya bs Rochel Devorah in your tefillos every single day.
I will attempt to ride 75 miles to raise money for Henny and her fellow campers.And of course I will be inspired to become a better version of myself as I think of Shoshana Basya bs Rochel Devorah perservering.
(To learn more about Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha special, visit campsimcha.org.) I will be biking to camp on Wednesday, July 19, 2017. My objective is to raise $7,500 by then, and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Thanks for checking this out.,
Chaia

Henny

Age: 16

Hi my name is Henny.
I was born with a rare skin condition known as dermatosparaxis. My skin is extremely fragile and soft. Growing up always needing to be careful, refraining from many activities, getting countless bruises and always needing stitches was just a part of life. A life I got used to over time. At camp I met many friends who were like me. Read More
Although our diagnosis's differ in truth we are very much the same. There I met girls who also sat on the side by gym, who also had to be careful, and knew what it was like to be in the hospital. I have been blessed to attend camp for the past twelve years. But it wasn't until last year when I saw the power of the enormous support group I have collected over the years. In December of 2015 I got diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called ulcerative colitis. It attacks me and pretty much affects every moment of my day to day life. Both diseases continue to aggravate each other on a daily basis causing them both to be extremely complicated. Chai lifeline is an organization unlike any other. It's not just two blissful weeks every summer. It's not Just special food brought to the hospital. It's not just the visits. It's the volunteers who get you through the year and make camp the special place it is. It's the shabbatons, events and retreats for the whole entire family. It's that bond that you share with girls who understand as you sit around in the bunkhouse comparing side effects And your funniest hospital stories. It's the friends that will last you a lifetime. It's that beat in my heart that won't stop beating.
