About the author.
If a cat has nine lives, Zvi Twersky has the lives of about nine cats. He was hospitalized multiple times in the course of saving lives as an advanced EMT, combat medic, Iraq war medal recipient, ambulance driver, and phlebotomist during his 30 years of service. He is no stranger to danger, from suffering injuries while carrying people from burning houses to getting CO poisoning while treating victims at a carbon monoxide leak incident. From fainting while extracting soldiers from a flipped army jeep to collecting body parts at bombings in Israel. Currently, he has five children and eight grandchildren, and his life-saving mission continues.
