In Memory of Dr. Ami Cohen, z"l
Save a Child's Heart Endowment Fund
In 1997, Katzya, age four, arrived from Moldova with serious heart defects. Her body was deep blue from lack of oxygen. She was near death. Some five months later, after five highly complicated operations, SACH founder Ami Cohen and his team had repaired Katya's heart. A few days before she left for home, Katya drew a hand holding a little girl with a heart. When Dr. Cohen and the head nurse asked her about the drawing, she said, " I had a dream, there were many colors over my head, then a very big hand came in the middle of the night. We flew off to a faraway country and they gave me a new heart, and I could run and dance."
Her original picture ( shown above) became the inspiration for our logo design.
