Gila Sibony's Gift of Life

Gila Sibony—young, beautiful, deeply in love with her husband and about to become a mother—had everything to live for. One day, everything changed. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a bleed in her brain was threatening Gila’s life. She was rushed into surgery at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Kerem, Jerusalem. Please take a few minutes to watch her story.

The video ends before Gila's story does. Today, two years after her life-threatening emergency, Gila is the mother of a baby girl, born at Hadassah Hospital.

Gila's story has a happy ending, but it could have been otherwise. Thirteen state-of-the-art ORs stand ready to open in the Tower, but the surgical ICUs need to be completed first. Our extraordinary doctors, and patients like Gila, need the best equipment and resources we can give them. Please send a generous donation today to speed the opening of the Emergency Preparedness Unit.
