Save your sanity, time & money!

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.


You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?

A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.

I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.

I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.

Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.

Here's How to Find Medical Information You Might Need

B'SD

Word gets around about the very helpful EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge book.


Last week I received a plea for medically-related information from a friend eager to help a family with a desperately ill young child. His baffling illness had left an entire medical team wondering how to respond to it. I shared insights and facts that seemed appropriate to the situation.


Then I responded to a request from someone trying to help an ill adult in need of medical equipment. 


Another person asked me to advise a family who could not afford health insurance for their child, a foreign exchange student.


Each of those persons were outside the country I live in  (Israel). Yet, I provided them with information likely to prove helpful. They've helped other people. 


Those facts, and more, are inside the pages of




At the end of last week, I learned that I'd been nominated for public recognition due to my efforts and successes in helping fellow Israelis (and immigrant Israelis called "olim") to improve their physical, mental or spiritual health with the book and with the Refua Radio Show:



"Dear Ms. Kramer,

I would like to nominate 
Yocheved Golani 
for Olim Making an Impact.

Yocheved Golani has launched the
Refua Radio Show at 
where she's inspiring listeners 
to live healthier lives with 
her divrei Torah and her book
Yocheved's medical knowledge 
and unusual story of survival
in devastating circumstances 
is inspirational, helping fellow 
Israelis and people around the world.

I have reviewed and edited many 
articles and mental health curricula 
as a Program Manager at the 
Behavioral Health Care 
Resource Program at the 
University of North Carolina. 

I have also interviewed many
non-profit organizations in Israel 
for Embrace Israel. 
Ms. Golani's work is a prime 
example of olim bringing 
their expertise and experience to
enrich the People of Israel. 
She is a true star and example 
for us all.

Sincerely, Joseph Sherman

It was not the only nomination made on my behalf. That book is helping people. All of us are grateful.
