Video: Battle Continues for Rafael Elisha Cohen


rafael-elisha-cohenBy Yaakov and Devorah Cohen

[Video below.] Our six-year-old son, Refael Elisha, was diagnosed with a rare malignant brain tumor. There is a medication which may save his life, as well as that of two other children, but the FDA has not made it available yet. If we can obtain 100,000 signatures, the FDA will have to address this pressing issue.

We are asking the FDA to grant us a compassionate use of an experimental medication that may have the potential to save the life of our 6-year old and two other kids with rare brain cancer.

We strongly believe that we can accomplish this. I am asking you to please sign the petition and forward this to your friends and ask them to sign. It takes only few minutes!

Please help us help Rafael Elisha and other kids to get this medication.

Thank you in advance,

Yaakov & Devorah Cohen
Houston, TX.

  1. Why is the picture of the Mother necessary to be posted on your website? Don’t you have the policy of not showing womens faces? Can’t you get your act together?

  2. If you are able to make the video go on by it’s self as I was going to turn off this page but then watched the video. The last second made me cry.

    cus of that
    – I opened up an email account
    – took me some time then will sign it


  3. You would think that the picture of a mother with her weak and desperate child clutching on to any ounce of life left would make you cry but rather the comment made by GAM yehieh made me cry more. How can anyone be so insensitive and so inredibly far from the truth? Maybe we should add his name to the davening list.

  5. to no 1 because it evokes empathy which leads to action-that’s all there is to it. Hashem yerachem. Our hearts and prayers are with you.

  6. I think the picture and video were very appropriate. They highlight what an obviously frumm and tziniusdik family of yirei-shamayim are going through, and how Rfa’el Elisha b. Dvorah amve”sh should have our complete support.

  7. Gam Yehiyeh you are so pethetic just do whats right did u sighn the petiton did u give gelt moron stop looking and stop bla bla bla bla just give!!!!!

  8. Please know people of all Faiths and walks of life have signed this petition and are holding this family in their hearts as we ALL pray for a miracle for Rafael Elisha!

  9. To 16: They need the signatures because the treatment has been shown to be effective and non-toxic, and won’t benefit the big pharmaceutical companies who the government is in cahoots with.

  10. Would Rafael’s parents please contact me urgently, on my email, DRROBERTPEERS@ME.COM? I am a Melbourne University medical graduate, who has studied nutrition for 24 years, and I have put together a list, or cocktail, of the most promising natural treatments for cancer. The biggest hitter on my list is INOSITOL, first identified as an anti-cancer ingredient in grains–it’s also in nuts, beans and citrus. There are anecdotal reports of good response to inositol in the brain tumour glioblastoma multiforme. It affects dozens of genes, and in high doses it can kill cancer cells. You can get it at health stores, and it’s cheap. I would start with 5 gm [one big tsp.] 4-6 times daily, as soon as possible. Email me for more details, and for other natural treatments with proven lab-based actions against cancer cells. Shalom!
