Carnival for Cancer

Once again, Beit Natan has been the focus of a teen fundraising program. A group of teens put together a summer carnival in Har Nof for local residents to enjoy, have fun, and...raise funds for Beit Natan. Thank you to all the volunteers, organizers and participants.

Cancer.
Living with this illness is a challenge that requires untold determination and courage.
We strive to enable each woman to release these qualities to better her life.
