APFED Appeal

Yissachar has never tasted matzah

Yissachar and other Jewish children with eosinophilic digestive diseases can't have matzah, maror, or wine at their seders. In fact, many of them cannot eat any foods ever, other than medical formulas which they drink or have pumped directly into their stomachs through a feeding tube.

“Eos” diseases don't occur exclusively in the Jewish population, but there are too many Jews suffering the diseases' pain, malnutrition, growth issues, hospitalizations, and other consequences.

This year as you prepare for your Pesach of special foods and drinks, remember Yissachar and help us research and fight eos diseases by contributing to APFED, the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Diseases.

Checks can be made out to APFED, and sent to:

The American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders (APFED) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in December 2001 by a group of mothers of young children living with Eosinophilic Disorders. It is a patient advocacy group dedicated to improving the lives of those living with eosinophilic disorders..
