I have known RivkA for many years now. Probably almost 15 years now.

When I first met her, I saw a nice, wise, happy and energetic red-headed woman. She is what we call in Hebrew a Gingit (red-headed). I liked her, but we were not close.

Then she moved away, and I didn’t see her often. When I did see her, she told me she had breast cancer. Thankfully she caught it early. She had her Chemo, and she seemed over it. She spoke about it very openly, and I admired her.

Then it came again, and this time it was very violent. It was level 4 cancer. But RivkA, as always, optimistic and energetic, didn’t give in. She lived her life, took care of her kids, and inspired everyone around. You can read about it all in her blog, Coffee and Chemo.

Last week the situation became critical. She is now in the hospital, with family and friends around, all very concerned.

Please read her blog, but not only from the last week, where her friend posts about her condition. Read what she wrote in the last few weeks and months. Watch the videos of the inspirational talk she gave about cancer.

If you are the praying type of person, please pray for RivkA bat Tiertzel. If you are not a praying person, please just send any positive, healing thoughts you can her way. We need a miracle now.
