This is Avigayil. You helped us save her life.

Avigayil Shore entered the world 6 weeks early, weighing just 3lb. Born with her stomach in the wrong place and breathing problems, she spent her first days fighting for her life in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  

You gave Avigayil the best equipment.

Avigayil’s lungs were not working; unable to breathe on her own, at one time she needed over 20 machines to keep her alive. Diagnosed with chronic lung disease, every breath Avigayil took was a fight for survival.

You gave Avigayil the best facilities.

Our doctors worked hard to save Avigayil’s life for all of the  101 days she spent in the NICU.  A virus can still put Avigyail in critical condition. Her life has been filled with ER visits, Intensive Care visits, blood tests, and surgeries.  For the Shore family we are a second home.

You gave Avigayil the best staff.

The Shore’s refer to Pulmonologist Dr Leon Joseph as family. He has been at their side since the NICU, helping Avigayil to breathe. Supporting the rest of the family he has battled with insurance companies and gives 24/7 support.  

You can keep giving Avigayil the best chances of a healthy future.

Avigayil’s life has been saved at Shaare Zedek more than once. She has grown from a newborn baby who could not take a breath on her own to an active and thriving 4-year-old with an unbelievable love of life, who is achieving things her parents could only dream of.

Your donations keep Avigayil alive when she has to fight so desperately to survive.

Your donations give Rivka the support she needs to look after her daughter at the worst times.

Your donations help hundreds of families like the Shores get the best help in the worst of circumstances every single day.

To face the worst, we need your best.

Thank you for your life saving support
