A Mother's Thanks

6 September, 2021
Raizy Wachsman wrote two whole pages of thanks to the staff at ALYN Hospital after her son, Yitzhak, had been referred to ALYN for rehabilitation in the fall of 2020 after being hit by a car while crossing a busy road. Yitzhak had sustained multiple injuries, including a rib fracture and a severe fracture in his femur. His leg had to be stabilized with metal rods into the bone from both sides of his knee to the pelvis. While his rehabilitation process originally began at the local Kupat Cholim, Yitzhak was soon after referred to ALYN. “From our first meeting at ALYN with Dr. Michal, we immediately felt assured that Yitzi’s case would really be taken to heart!” said Raizy.

After many months of slow progress, after Purim, Yitzhak had surgery to remove the rods and he is now slowly regaining movement and independence.

Meet Shira

With the help of her family, music, and the team at ALYN Hospital, Shira is now singing a new tune!

A boy, a bike ride, and beshert!

20 October, 2020
Sometimes, events in our life are touched by “beshert” – the notion that some things are predestined or meant to be. When Hovav Landau started doing the Wheels of Love ride for ALYN Hospital in 2005, he would have never imagined that someday it would be his own child who would benefit from ALYN’s excellence in pediatric rehabilitation Combining bike riding with the mitzvah of tzedakah is something he looks forward to year after year. So, without thinking twice, he contacted Dr. Maurit Beeri, Director General of ALYN Hospital, and asked if Meori could be admitted there for the duration of his rehabilitation process, to which Dr. Beeri agreed. In Hovav’s words: “To us, it was clear we were going home.”
