Funds to benefit Nazareth Hospital Stroke Department

A stroke is a life-changing event which can affect anybody. Every two seconds someone in the world has a stroke. Strokes are the third-highest cause of death in Israel.

Treatment response times play a huge part in patient survival and recovery. Swift intervention reduces the chance of paralysis or even death after a stroke. The people of Nazareth have no access to a dedicated Stroke Department in their own town. Please help us by joining the Nazareth Challenge and help us raise $600,000 to purchase a new CT scanner and develop Nazareth’s first Stroke Department.
