Words from the Amida: (Shmona Esrei)
רְפָאֵנוּ ה’ וְנֵרָפֵא, הוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ וְנִוָּשֵׁעָה, כִּי תְהִלָּתֵנוּ אָתָּה כִּי אֵל מֶלֶך רוֹפֵא נֶאֱמָן וְרַחֲמָן אָתָּה Heal us, Hashem—then we will be healed; save us—then we will be saved, for You are our praise. Bring complete recovery for all our ailments, for You are G-d, King, the faithful and compassionate Healer. Blessed are You, Hashem, Who heals the sick of the people of Israel.
Cancer. The mere mention of this dreaded disease evokes feelings of unease. Some refuse to allow its name to cross their lips, simply referring to it as “that disease.” In a world where crucial medical decisions need to be made, effective treatment plans must be settled, medical bills must be paid and battles with insurance companies are waged at every moment. The overwhelming fear itself knows no bounds. Since its inception in 1997, RCCS (Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society) has played a critical role, providing hope and relief for cancer patients, support for their families, and the means to survive. Without RCCS, thousands of people would stare death in the face with little chance of recovery and survival.
RCCS stands by each individual throughout every step of the process, holding their hands along the way to help them fight and win the war against cancer. RCCS literally funds miracles, giving life to cancer patients, offering a ray of hope to families, and creating an army of survivors. The mission of RCCS is to tackle cancer challenges, ease medical treatment, cover insurance premiums to lighten the financial burden, and make cancer care more accessible. Every single dollar that RCCS gives out to patients is approved by its board of volunteers, ensuring tremendous oversight and responsibility.
