Liora Argamani, the mother of Israeli hostage Noa Argamani, issues a renewed plea to US President Joe Biden to see her daughter Noa Argamani again before she succumbs to terminal cancer.

“I am terminally ill with Stage 4 brain cancer. All that’s running through my mind before I part ways with my family forever is the chance to hug my daughter, my only child, one last time,” Liora Argamani wrote in a letter to Biden, according to CNN.

“It’s Christmas now, and I would like to request from you, Mr. President, as a present, to see my daughter again before I leave this world,” Argamani wrote, noting that she is aware “how important family is” for Biden personally, and what an “incredible bond” he has with his own children.

“My daughter Noa is a contagiously happy and resilient young woman. She loves to dance, loves music, loves being with her friends and family,” she wrote. “She deserves to be back where she belongs, pursuing her dreams, surrounded by love and care. She deserves to see her mother alive one last time.”
