For Rafael Asulin, a six-and-a-half year old who has been fighting cancer since he was just six-months-old, this year's Purim celebrations were more than just a chance to dress up. It was the chance to fulfill a dream.

Rafael's father Moshe has been volunteering as a medic at the United Hatzalah paramedic team in Jerusalem for the past three years. For Purim this year, Rafael got to live his dreams of following his father's footsteps by experiencing saving lives on his very own "ambucycle", lovingly made in miniature by his father.
