By J-Wire.. Magen David Adom’s “Make a Wish Ambulance” has taken a teacher battling with terminal cancer to her students’ graduation party. Last week (first week of July, 2017) MDA received a special request. Rina, who’s been a teacher for the past 25 years, is battling cancer and hoped for MDA’s assistance in making it to her students’ high school graduation party. Within an hour, the special MDA Make a Wish ambulance was enlisted to the operation staffed by Ambulance Driver and EMT Tomer Bar Levi, MDA paramedic Yair Cohen and EMT Rivka Menni. The ambulance picked Rina up from her house and transported her to the party.

Later on, the ambulance team continued with Rina and her family members on a night trip of Jerusalem.

The Ambulance Driver and MDA EMT, Tomer Bar Levi said: “When we arrived at the house we were charmed by her personality and strength. It became clear to us that she hadn’t left her house for over six months and that it has been very hard to convince her to do so considering her medical state. At moments like these, we comprehend again and again, what this special initiative means. It is a privilege to allow these people to see their dreams come true.” Read the full story.
