Moshe Arazi is a young man with an unusual story. He is a 27 year old Israeli, currently in the US for medical treatment.
He is battling Behcet’s syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease that attacks blood vessels, joints, and internal organs. Moshe unfortunately has the distinction of being one of the most severe cases of this disease that doctors have ever seen, both in Israel and the US.
The doctors in Israel were unable to offer any treatment for Moshe’s condition, so on the advice of Rav Chaim Kanievsky he traveled to the US on a special medical transport for treatment. The doctors in the rheumatology dept. at Mt. Sinai Hospital in NY have been able to offer a glimmer of hope for a treatment that hopefully will improve his condition.
