Rafi as he is fondly called by the family is an 18 year old boy who is a very sweet and caring kid. Like most kids his age he was very active in sports (basketball is his favorite) and would readily shy away from cigarette smoking and alcohol. He is a 2nd year computer science student and wishes to finish his studies someday. But his dream may have to wait a bit longer as he battles a new challenge. One that he nor his family can't do alone. After a mass started to grow in his tongue, his parents decided to have it examined. The results came as a shock as Rafi was diagnosed with Tongue Cancer. CT and MRI scans staged his cancer as Stage 4. His parents are now knocking on our kind hearts to help in any way we can thru this campaign. Let us join Rafi and his family in this fight. Thank you and may God bless you.
