Letter from Mom

I didn’t feel any need to write an update today, since no words can match the picture below. But then my Mom (who had come with my Dad to help out) asked that I send her letter out to “Stella’s Army.”


Dear Stella’s Army:

On our flight and since getting home, I keep thinking about what you are doing for my family. To me, you are the meaning of true religion. Your support, kindness, and help to Stella and Yarden, my wonderful grandchildren and to Jerry and myself is beyond what ever the ancient sages could have imagined.

We’d like to have a word with you

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

I could write how much we appreciate all the support we have received from both friends and strangers near and far, but let us just have a short word with you instead.

If you want to keep up with the ride, Marc will be live blogging as long as he is awake, but for reports from the ride itself, friend me on Facebook where Josh will be me.

I know a lot of people are with us tonight, but I don’t feel weighed down in the least.

Together we’re gonna Fight like Hell and Ride like the Wind.


Chag Sameach (Happy Holidays)

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Our Friends:

Just a short note to wish all those who have been following the situation that they have a Chag Sameach. (Joyous holiday)

I am sure that the impending release of Gilad Shalit — despite the heavy price — is a reward for his family and friends who never gave up hope through all of the last five years. And it teaches all of us to never give up hope either. We must cling to our hope with every ounce of strength we have, whatever the situation.

Now, I want to make a simple request to everyone.

But first, I want to make sure that everyone knows how much we appreciate all the incredible support we receive from friends near and far on a daily basis. Chicken soup, foot massages, e-mails, Facebook comments, and prayers, prayers, prayers are all highly welcomed.

So now I have to be honest and make my request.

Please do not ask us directly for any details of Stella’s treatment. Do not ask about scans, tests, and how many chemo treatments she has had or will have. When we have news that we wish to share, believe me — we do not hesitate to share.

But should we encounter some news that is not what we wish for, we do not want to be placed in the uncomfortable position of discussing this news with everyone. It may be that we simply need to keep certain details private for our sake and that of our children.

By all means, ask about how Stella is feeling, if we need anything, or if you want to go for a run with me. That is more than welcomed. Don’t feel you need to keep your distance, we do need your support.

Just understand that we need to be “off the record” with certain news.

Thank you and Chag Sameach.

P.S. I am planning a one man bike-a-thon in the next few weeks. I don’t have time to go into details right now, but I will write about it after the holiday. Stay Tuned!

I don’t know what to say

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

I was speaking to a friend the other day and he mentioned that a number of people had not been in touch. They care very deeply about our situation, but they are afraid to approach me because “they don’t know what to say.”

I got news for you my friends.

I don’t know what to say either.

But if you are waiting to think of the magic words that are going to make me feel better, then I doubt we will ever talk. Because there are no magic words. The situation is what it is. Stella has cancer and we are doing the best we can to get through it.

To all of our friends, in America, Israel, and all over the world,

We have been overwhelmed by the love that we have felt from all over. The davening (praying), people making meals, and everyone asking what they can do to help. Words cannot express our gratitude for the support that we have received. We are sorry that we have kept everyone in the dark for a few days. We were hoping that the final diagnosis would be different than it is.

We are going to need your continued support.

Because the news is difficult.

Stella’s cancer is not operable.
