When Liba Cohen fell down a flight of stairs, she found herself unable to move. An ambulance brought her to HMO where Dr. Leon Kaplan, a back specialist, promised her she would walk again. Dr. Kaplan removed fragments of broken vertebrae, released the pressure on her spinal cord, and reconstructed the damaged part of her spine. Following months of rehabilitation at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus, making good use of the Locomat (the computerized treadmill and hydraulic lift, purchased thanks to donations from Hadassah Austria, United Kingdom, and France), Liba was able to walk again, as promised. “You have no idea how important the work you do is,” Liba told Hadassah volunteers she met recently at the Hospital.
