Liora Argamani, mother of Hamas hostage Noa Argamani, shared a painful video message Wednesday pleading to see her daughter again, as she battles stage four cancer.

“I have cancer, brain cancer,” said Argamani in the video message, sitting in the family’s temporary apartment in Tel Aviv, near her cancer treatment clinic.

“I don’t know how much time I have left. I wish for the chance to see my Noa at home.”

Noa Argamani was kidnapped from the Supernova desert rave on October 7 as Hamas terrorists attacked the party, slaughtering hundreds there. Her kidnapping was made infamous by a video showing her screaming while seated on the back of a motorcycle behind her captor.

In the video, Argamani stretched her arms out toward her boyfriend, Avinatan Or, who was also taken by Hamas terrorists.

“I worked and fought hard to have a daughter,” said Yaakov Argamani, Liora’s husband, in the days following Noa’s abduction.

Noa is the Argamanis’ only daughter.

“Noa,” her mother said in the new clip. “I want to tell you if I don’t see you, please know we did everything we could to get you released fast. The whole world loves you.”
