SAVE AARON! - DONATE NOW
Yehuda Hecht, Nissim Brett and Joseph Melzer are riding the Cape Cycle Tour to help raise funds to find a cure for Aaron Lipshitz! Click here to donate!
Aaron Lipschitz (aged 5) is the only child in South Africa to be diagnosed with Interleukin-12 Receptor Defect. In simple terms the cells in Aaron’s immune system do not communicate effectively and as a result he is unable to fight infections. Aaron has also never been able to tolerate any food without becoming very ill. The only nutrition he has been able to cope with is an extremely hypoallergenic formula called Similac Alimentum. He is currently fed via a MIC-KEY feeding port in his stomach.
