Leah Iskav is 6 years old and is fighting cancer for the third time in her short life. She is up against the biggest challenge so far; only a very expensive surgery in Philadelphia can save her life. Her mother, Aina, tearfully pleaded, "I need to save my daughter's life to give her a real chance to live and not die from this terrible disease." Leah was born in the summer of 2008. She is a sweet, loving and caring girl who loves life. She lives in Mevasseret Tziyon just outside Jerusalem and her older sister is currently serving in the IDF. 


Up until age 4 Leah was healthy, but what seemed to be a regular fever turned out to be leukemia. Leah's mother gave up her career to take care of her daughter and in 2013, Leah was declared cancer-free. Unfortunately, the cancer returned and Leah proceeded to successfully receive a bone marrow transplant from her sister. The cancer, however, has returned for a third time and only a $400,000 treatment in Philadelphia can help save her life now. 


Leah is hoping to grow up to be a professional dancer. She is looking forward to beating the cancer so she can be healthy and strong. The treatment in Philadelphia is the last chance to save young Leah's life. The family has raised $50,000 so far towards the treatment but still needs approximately $350,000.
