Story

My father, Rav Reuvain Peretz Lyss z"l passed away in 2014 from 4th stage glioblastoma, a malignant brain tumor. He suffered from the effects of the tumor for nearly 2 years. Throughout this process my father was in and out of the hospital for treatments, and it was challenging for our whole family. He was initially given 6 months to live by doctors, but thank G-d lived nearly 2 years after his first diagnosis. Throughout these 2 years my father steadily declined regarding his health, and mental and emotional states. To put it bluntly the father I had growing up was not the same father I had 2 years before he passed away due to the effects of the growing brain tumor, even after 2 surgeries. During this time JCN was a constant support for our family. They provided us with a small shabbos package, including challah and a newspaper every Friday afternoon, provided some financial support to help us cope with the challenges during my father's illness, and hosted us in the Tikva House in downtown Baltimore for Shabbos while my father was in a coma in Johns Hopkins during the last days of his life. 
JCN provided us not only with pragmatic support, but we never felt alone throughout the process. We always felt someone cared and understood our pain.
I'd like to give back to JCN, even though no amount of thanks or money will ever truly express my appreciation for this incredible organization.
Please help me reach my goal of raising $3600 for my participation on the 5K run this summer, so together we could help others feel the love, warmth and support from the JCN as myself and my family did 7 years ago.
