The sudden onset of a child’s life threatening illness would devastate any family.
For a single parent with rapidly dwindling finances, it is unimaginable. 

  • How is it possible for a single mother to go to work every day while her sick child is in constant and urgent need?
  • How can a single father carry on his work, when all he wants to do is to make sure that everything possible is being done for his child?
  • How can single parents afford to give up their source of income and jeopardize their health insurance,
    and food on the table for their healthy children? 

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of families whose child is diagnosed with a critical illness will experience divorce or separation. 

The ordeal of a child’s grave illness tests these families far beyond their endurance, and they become bankrupt financially, emotionally and physically. 

“Hello! I just wanted to say thank you! Your generosity has enabled me to help my family in so many ways. I’m a single mom and it has been very difficult since my youngest daughter was diagnosed with two diseases (yes! 2). With the hospital social workers help and the quick generosity of the Andre Sobel River of Life Foundation my family was able to survive a few more months. Words can never express how thankful we are for your foundations help. We had been asking for help from our own community and we were turned down by all of them for various financial reasons.Mrs. Sobel not only rescued us, she did so in a very short amount of time. She answered our prayers sooner than anyone else returned our call. Again thank you for everything!”

“I can’t tell you what it means to our family to have received your support. The mortgage payment and grocery money were a welcome breather and will go a long way in helping us scramble to our feet again financially.” 


~William M. Torres

“If it wasn’t for a foundation like yours, our family could easily been without a home.”
