Max’s Mitzvah Project
This is my grandma (I call her Nanny) and my favorite picture from at the beach when I was 2. We love to look at it and it always makes us laugh and smile—we love our time together at the beach—it’s one of our favorite places!
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I’ll be giving tzedakah by raising money to benefit Let’s Win! Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. I found out about this foundation from my grandma’s doctor Allyson Ocean and my family friend Michele Feirman after Nanny was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
What makes this foundation special is that it was created to support research and connect patients with doctors and scientists to share immediate information and updates on new treatments and trials. It also provides a community for patients and families to find support and easy-to-understand information that can help make decisions for treatment options and how to better manage and improve life. All funds raised will go straight to Let’s Win, and any donation will help. This is important to me because I know that Nanny can get better care, support, and have more research done which all benefit her and so many other people who have pancreatic cancer.
Thank you for any donation you can make.
