Mayor Rudolph Giuliani Visits Rabin Medical Center

L-R: Rudolph Giuliani and Nava Barak

In Israel for only two days in October 2005, the former Mayor of New York, Rudolph Giuliani, found time to visit Rabin Medical Center's Davidoff Center, the largest and most prestigious center for the treatment and research of cancer in the Middle East, and fulfilled the promise he made at the 2004 NY gala dinner to visit Israel. Giuliani, who successfully overcame prostate cancer, wanted to give hope and encouragement to patients in their continuous fight against this terrible disease. Speaking before the staff, Giuliani expressed how impressed he was, affirming that this center is one of the most exceptional, outstanding, treatment centers he has ever visited. During his visit, Giuliani also met with two young mothers, Mira Tako and Shiri Givoli, (each with small children) who are cancer patients benefiting from the services of the new Davidoff Center. Giuliani was quite emotional during this meeting and expressed his desire to visit again in the near future.
