Deborah, 64

I am a 64 year old woman and have always been very fit and active. When I started to experience pain in my knees I was shocked to learn that I required a knee replacement.

Just as I was recovering from surgery my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumour and was hospitalised for three weeks where he underwent major surgery.

There was no way I could have managed public transport and barely hobbled in an out of the taxis. Bikur Cholim’s support with hospital transport was the only way I get to visit my husband.

The time we spent together were a special memory to me especially when he died just three months later.

”Thank you Bikur Cholim for making it possible for us to be together in his final weeks which would never have been possible without your valuable services”.
