To the founders and volunteers of the Ezras Cholim of Phoenix,
When I was 19, I flew to Phoenix from New York along with my parents to have a serious surgery. We were overwhelmed to say the least, traveling someplace we hadn’t been before, and not knowing what to expect. We had no friends or family to rely on, that is before we met the Ezras Cholim.
Then we had someone helping us every step of the way. No detail was overlooked. Airport rides, kosher food, visitors, and more visitors. We discovered that we did, in fact, have friends in Phoenix, and they held our hand every step of the way.
Every year on the anniversary of my surgery I think back to my time in Phoenix, and have to tell my family again how grateful I am that we had the love and support of the Ezras Cholim. You absolutely transformed what the experience was.
With much love and appreciation,
Basya F. (December 2019)
