Our old friend RivkA lost her fight with metastatic breast cancer today. She and I didn’t always agree on things, but we agreed on the need to SPEAK OUT about this beast that is cancer, to keep working to tell people that LIFE DOESN’T END with a cancer diagnosis, and to help other women fighting their own battles. Her time for words has ended now, but that doesn’t mean that her words will have had no impact. I leave you with a link to a talk she gave in June 2009, which she asked be reposted on her blog shortly before her death.
Please daven, pray, or whatever is appropriate in your faith tradition today for Rivka bat Yishaya and her family.
