An empowering presentation on how to protect yourself, your family and your relationship when the worst happens, based on the personal experience of childhood cancer survivor, award-winning physics student and Ted Talker Noam, and his equally exceptional mom Rivka.
Rivka: “Your son has Leukemia”. In these words, 18 years ago, the doctor unfold my fate. I felt like the sky fell on me. I stood there, a young mom, and I couldn’t understand how my life will go on from this moment and how I will manage myself and my family. Since then my family and my relationship strengthened, and we even enlarged the family with love.
Noam: You won’t be able to walk. That is how they told me in the rehab center – I was after having a bone marrow transplant. I was only 12 years-old now the sky fell on me. It happened after the 3rd round of the leukemia. Today I am a 2nd-year student of physics and computer science at Hebrew University. How do I get there? I drive there!
