Dear Mr. Morgenstern:
My name is Rachel Robinowitz. My husband,
Stanley, and I moved from South Florida to Ramat Beit Shemesh,
Israel, in July
One day this past summer, my husband began to not
feel well, and as his condition seemed to deteriorate I called
The ambulance and crew arrived within minutes,
along with what I understand is extra and more advanced equipment
than is carried
on a regular ambulance, including the Life-Pak 12, which
they set up on the bed and began testing my husband with
spot. The crew did not like the results of the tests.
The proper drugs
were administered immediately and a decision was made
to transport my husband to the nearest hospital, Hadassah
Hospital in Jerusalem,
an hour away.
At the hospital it was determined that my husband
had had suffered a heart attack, with one main artery 90%
muscle damage. This was actually his second heart attack
in five years.
The doctors told me that thanks to the speed with which
the ambulance brought my husband to the hospital, the
expertise of the ambulance
crew, all volunteers, along with the sophisticated
equipment in the ambulance itself, my husband is alive today.
I understand you have donated this very
ambulance to our community in memory of your daughter, Nancy.
I wanted to let you know
that your generosity has saved my husband's life and is saving
daily throughout the entire Beit Shemesh area.
My husband is home now and doing well,
May the hearts of your family be comforted.
And may your daughter's memory be for a
With deepest thanks,
