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
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
Editor and Content Manager
Beit Shemesh, Israel"
It was not the only nomination made on my behalf. That book is helping people. All of us are grateful.
