Facing Disease

I am humbled by Brian.

Brian  displays remarkable strength despite the dramatic changes and treatments he’s undergoing. Few would maintain faith. I’m also so impressed by the woman at his side.

I am blessed to know another person like this, my uncle, Shmuel, may he be blessed with long life. He has battled brain cancer for about seven years. The challenges are too numerous to describe here, but his optimism, appreciation for Leonard Cohen and a good joke are as present as ever.

G-d bless these men with health and recovery as they face the battle of their lives. We need them here.
