Light in the Tunnel (Mishpacha 12/14)

 

The K. family’s living room was well-lit. But neither the sparkling chandeliers nor the glowing fluorescents could banish the darkness that prevailed there.

As long as there were only suspicions and conjectures, they managed to somehow suppress them. But when the unequivocal results arrived, they could not ignore the facts anymore. The father of the family, the supporting pillar, the broad shoulders that carried the entire family – was diagnosed with cancer.pr anxiety

Malka felt as if the sky had crashed down on her. At night, on the tear-drenched pillow on the ward, she had a frightening dream, blacker than black. Continue reading Light in the Tunnel (Mishpacha 12/14)

Ezer Mizion Emergency Medical Station

Yated Ne’eman – Reshut Harabim
July 8, 2014

My one-year-old son fell and needed the gash on his head closed up. When I spoke to the Kupat Cholim’s hot line, I was advised to go directly to an emergency clinic under the auspices of the Kupah. Since I knew that the Kupat Cholim has a collaborative arrangement with Ezer Mizion, I asked if I could go there, rather than schlep to a distant clinic. They told me that Ezer Mizion does not do gluing.
But when I called Ezer Mizion, I learned that the doctor on call at Ezer Mizion does glue cuts. Indeed, we went there and were taken care of at the reduced cost of seven (yes, 7 !!!) NIS.
I want to take advantage of this important milieu to thank the people at Ezer Mizion for their courteous attention, speedy service, and warm smile.
Remember, even if the Kupat Cholim tells you that a particular service is not administered at Ezer Mizion, before making the trip to a remote clinic, it is always better to call and check with Ezer Mizion. It could well be that you can go there and save time, traveling, and perhaps even money.
Refuah shleimah!

Holding Our Hands

Thank You, Ezer Mizion

In this letter, I would like to express my thanks to Ezer Mizion for their help in dealing with Bitu’ach Le’umi, the National Insurance Institute. Our daughter suffers from an illness that is characterized by both heart and pulmonary difficulties.pr building188_ne_photo_fada6 We needed advice. there were so many aspects of dealing with her condition that we were unfamiliar with. Ezer Mizion held our hands and helped us in so many ways.  Just one example: We did not know that we could get a government allowance for her until we were referred to Ezer Mizion. There, they explained everything to us and guided us in how exactly to file a claim. Indeed, we were awarded a regular allowance, and for this we are extremely grateful to Ezer Mizion.

Thank You…Thank You…and Thank You Again

We wanted to thank you for… everything!

Two years ago, my baby was born a month and a half early. I gave birth in a hospital up north. The baby was in the hospital for some time. The first day, he just needed oxygen, but then his condition declined and he was on a respirator for several days.

The staff at the hospital did not understand why the baby’s condition was not improving and they sent him for all kinds of tests. Thanks to the Ezer Mizion contact person, they agreed to hear a second opinion from someone outside the hospital. (Thank G-d, it wasn’t necessary in the end, because the situation started improving.)

While the baby was hospitalized, I desperately needed a nursing pump, and you graciously lent me one. With time, we saw that the baby was developing slowly, and we borrowed equipment from you to help advance his motor skills. This too was given to us very happily.

From time to time, we have to bring the baby to a hospital in Central Israel for a check-up, and there we are treated to a hot, nourishing lunch – thanks to you!

Thank you for everything, and again, thank you! Words cannot express our appreciation!

Love, Love, Love

Dear Mrs. Lerner,

Several weeks ago, I accompanied my mother on a walk that Ezer Mizion sponsors for elderly women in the National Park. I was so impressed by the sense of responsibility exhibited by Ruth (the Ezer Mizion volunteer) that I felt that I must write to you.  Her pleasantness and kindness are reflected by her warm smile and the very respectful way with which she responds to every question posed by the participants.  She is personally acquainted with each and every one of them, and knows how to say the right word to each one.  They all return her love, with love.

Blood Donation Collections – In Appreciation

We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to Ezer Mizion, with whom we have been working in collaboration for years, and of course, to all the voluntary blood donors who came to donate blood at the special drive we coordinated together on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011.

Our urgent call to you came in light of the desperate shortage in our supply of type O blood units, the result of an unusually high demand on the part of the hospitals, for treatment of two patients who needed transfusion of many blood units. Therefore, we asked you to coordinate an immediate emergency blood drive at Ezer Mizion’s Bnei Brak branch.

Within a short time, the donor drive was arranged, and in the framework of the drive, 272 (!) blood units were collected. These units helped us provide a response to the hospitals’ urgent demand for blood units and components.

A blood donation is always a life-saving act. When the blood unit supply at the hospitals dwindles dangerously, a blood donation serves as an even more noble and vital deed.

We thank Ezer Mizion as a whole for giving its sponsorship to such an important matter, which deals almost entirely with saving lives. We also want to thank you in particular for dealing with this matter with the utmost seriousness and importance, both in coordinating the donor drive on such short notice, in working to bring in so many donors to do this important act, and in standing by MDA’s blood collection staff throughout the course of the drive, with everything that it involves.

Please convey our thanks to all the donors who gave of their blood and their time on such short notice.

We look forward, now and in the future, to continued collaboration in donor drives under your auspices, with the same marvelous attitude and generous assistance.

Thank you again!
Sincerely,

Professor Ayelet Shinar
Director of Blood Services, MDA
