Shlucha Getting a Transplant

Phoenix Shlucha Sashie Levertov had a bone marrow transplant Tuesday. The family asked to say Tehillim as the next 2 weeks are crucial.

By COLlive reporter

In Phoenix and elsewhere prayers were being said Tuesday for Chabad Shlucha Sashie Levertov who has been diagnosed with leukemia as she was undergoing a bone marrow transplant.

The important medical procedure began at 1:00 PM Arizona time.

Levertov, 28 and a mother of 4 (the youngest of whom is 9 months old), directs Chabad's Aleph Bet Preschool & Kindergarten in Phoenix and runs Bat Mitzvah and Beyond for teenage girls and Loaves of Love, a challah "bake and gift" program.

After she was diagnosed in February 2012, Sashie began a regimen of chemotherapy to combat the disease.

"It is of course a difficult regimen, but Baruch Hashem Sashie maintains good spirits and an upbeat attitude, trusting in Hashem to aid in her healing," the family said.

Following the transplant, the next 2 weeks will be "very crucial" to her recovery, a family member told

The public is asked to say Tehillim and give tzedaka in merit of Sasha bas Bluma.

Levertov's Facebook page, as well as her husbands Shliach Rabbi Moshe Levertov, is flooded with blessings from friends. "Everyone is offering to help," said Rabbi Levertov, who asks everyone he speaks with to dedicate a good deed in the merit of his wife.

"It's very encouraging," he told of the Torah campaign and the various other community initiatives. "It's heartwarming to know that at the end of the day, were all one."

Refuah Shleima
If she is in the situation to get a bone marrow transplant BH she is very lucky. It means she has been fortunate that the chemotherapy has worked to reduce her leukaemic blasts to a point where she can have a transplant, and also fortunate to find a match! You should continue in this manner until you have a complete Refua Shleima.
