Nancy Tamir was born in Milwaukee, WI and emigrated from the US to Israel in 1964. Since then it has been a series of adventures for her. Her work experience was teaching English to high ranking officers in the IDF for many years, and in her words “It was a privilege to do so”.
Nancy suffered from severe Emphysema, with little hope of survival. On June 17th, 2001 her life began again after a successful lung transplant performed by Professor Cramer from Beilinson Hospital. Nancy went on to earn 19 gold medals for swimming in the European Olympics for Lung/Heart Transplantees. After the transplant she began taking writing courses and on March 29, 2012 her book "Butterflies and Bombs" was published on eight different E- books.
Nancy is very involved with the Caesarea Residents Committee and she loves it. She has nine granddaughters and one grandson – “King of the Crop he is”!
