Dear Friends and Relatives and past supporters,

As you so very well know, our daughter Michele did not survive the devastating breast cancer that afflicted her. Last October she passed away, putting an end to her courageous 15 years successful battle against Leukemia. Her body has left us but her Love for Life and her generous spirit still guide us to continue caring for others whose struggle against all kind debilitating illnesses. To this end, my family and I have decided to honor her memory by continuing her legacy of caring for others.

You all know how much cycling has always helped me contribute to various fundraising. Finally, I can realize a dream, never fulfilled before, by participating in the annual Wheels of Love Bicycle ride that benefit the children treated at ALYN Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel. For many years, we have supported this ride with donations, but we were prevented by circumstances, from participating in it physically. This year, in October, in memory of Michele’s love for life and in keeping with her dedication to help others, I shall fundraise for the Hospital. I am proud to commit to ride the 500 k ALYN Challenge Ride along with my good friend and cycling partner; Jimmy Focazio. Together, we have formed Team Goyim and committed ourselves to raise a goodly amount of money.

ALYN is a world leader in pediatric rehabilitation and they truly make both magic and miracles. The Hospital receives no automatic government funding and is dependent on donations to meet an ever-rising shortfall in funding. This year the need is especially great since the Ministry of Health has ruled staff must be increased and insurance companies have reduced reimbursements. Please help us so that we can both do a good deed to help transform disabilities into abilities.

Sincerely, grateful for your support and donations

Andre Louis

ALYN Hospital is one of the world's leading specialists in pediatric rehabilitation and is the only facility of its kind in Israel.

ALYN's belief is that it is every child's right to have the highest quality of life attainable and to this end ALYN provides every patient and their family members with all the necessary tools to enable these youngsters to learn how to cope with their condition. The ultimate aim of ALYN is to rehabilitate the youngsters in its care and to return them to their families and to the community as quickly as possible, having provided them with the skills to function as productive, and where possible, independent citizens.

ALYN Hospital is an officially registered non-profit facility and as such receives no automatic Government support whatsoever. Only a portion of every child's rehabilitation costs is reimbursed by the Israel Health Funds or other referring agencies. Consequently the Hospital has to raise funds through donations in order to bridge the ever fluctuating "gap" between these fixed rates and the actual costs of the quality and quantity of the high level multidisciplinary rehabilitation services which are provided to all children who are treated in ALYN. In addition, ALYN has to raise 100% of the donations needed to underwrite the costs of the Hospital's development budget, which includes the purchase of new/replacement equipment, research, special projects and programs.

Donations received are used to underwrite the costs of ALYN Hospital's activities, to ensure that ALYN's children continue to receive rehabilitation treatments of the highest quality possible, for the expansion of the Hospital's research and development and for an Endowment Fund which will insure the continued existence of the Hospital and its activities in times of fiscal crises and emergencies.

Donations to ALYN Hospital are channeled through the Friends of ALYN Society which is a registered non-profit organization raising funds for the ALYN Hospital Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Center.
