Syndi Bergstein was so grateful for the wonderful care her husband received during his treatment for cancer that she is giving back to help other patients at Good Samaritan Hospital. The Suffern resident has gifted more than 20 of her elaborately designed quilts to patients at the hospital’s Bobbi Lewis Cancer Center.
“I was amazed when I came for treatment, I left with a lovely quilt. This generous gift is a welcome surprise during such a hard time in my life,” said patient William Skerry, who received one of Syndi’s quilts.
To Syndi, whose two daughters were born at Good Samaritan, giving back just made sense.
“To give to someone in need, to help a patient going through a tough time, is more meaningful than selling my quilts for any amount of money,” said Syndi, who urged others to follow her example and give to the hospital.
