Campaign Raising $250K to Help Family of Sick Child

Campaign raising money to house family of boy as he undergoes 6-month treatment at Sloan-Kettering.

An online campaign is fighting to raise $250,000 for a young anemic boy in need of a cell transplant.

Aviel Beckman is a seven-year-old boy who was diagnosed with Fanconi anemia and aplastic anemia, genetic disorders that have devastating consequences without proper treatment.

That's why the Beckman family is raising funds for an allogenic stem cell transplant.

"The Beckman family needs our help with accommodations while in New York and the 3 kids staying behind in Israel. The procedure is a 6 month difficult process," said their GoFundMe page.

"Very few centers in the world have enough expertise in such transplants. Aviel will be arriving in New York November 18th with his parents to Sloan Memorial Kettering Center for a stem cell transplantation. Both parents don't work since they are in and out of hospitals and have 3 more kids at home ages 1,4,6 which will be staying behind in Israel with their grandmother."
