Sunday, November 25, 2007


Two weeks ago, on Saturday, November 10th, at 11 am, my mother died.

She died after a courageous battle against cancer.

I was with her at her last moments and so were my two sisters, she died in her bed at her home, with no medical intervention, as she wished to.

I passed with her the last night of her life and prayed for her "SHMA ISRAEL" although I consider myself a non religious Jewish woman.

We shall never, never forget her dignity and courage, which se kept till her very last moments.

The diagnosis

Two years ago, on November 2005 we found out that my mother was sick with pancreatic cancer.

For some weeks already, IMA (mother in Hebrew) complained of pain and difficulties eating, of course we called some doctors that said that it is probably a VIRUS.

One of the last images I held of my "non cancerous" mother is me and her enjoying a sunny day on "Hof Hatzuk", a nice beach located on the north part of Tel-Aviv, me walking on the shore and IMA waving on my direction. This event took place two days before the diagnosis.

Two days after our outing at the beach my mother waked up suffering from jaundice.
