More Cancer

Posted by Deb | Life in General | Friday 29 October 2010 1:42 pm

The situation of my friend RivkA of whom I told about here yesterday is still critical, and today I heard that another friend of mine was also diagnosed lately with breat cancer. I don’t know yet what her situation yes, or what level is her cancer. Both women are mothers of 3 (like me), but RivkA’s children are older, and the kids at least have a father who can take care of them. This other woman, whose name I won’t mention here as not everyone around knows yet about it, is a single mother like me, and her kids are even younger: all under 8. Luckily she lives near her parent, so they are probably helping to take care of the kids, but this is frightening. I feel for her and for her kids. When you are the single parent of kids, it is so much responsibility to bear even when all is well.

Anyway, this brings my life and troubles into proportion. I think I will fix up an appointment with a doctor soon and have a full check-up myself.


Now I checked RivkA’s blog again. She had passed away this morning. Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet. (Blessed is the True Judge. That is what Jews say when they here about someone who has just passed away).

RivkA Matitya z"l

Read about her in the Jerusalem Post Today.
