Caryn - You're on. I had your name from elsewhere but I wanted to make sure you were okay with it going on another thread. I hope things have started to get better for you.

Rachel - I'm a year out from diagnosis. I had my stage 2 reconstruction 2 weeks ago and should now officially be done with treatment. Since the MiSheberach includes prayers for spiritual well-being, I'd love to be included. I'm still working on that aspect!
Chava Sara bat Miriam.

Thanks for taking this up, Rachel! As they say in my son's school, you are a mitzvah girl!
Leah, thanks for including the names on the list, too. Somehow I feel the prayers mean more coming from Israel. I miss Israel right now. :( We left in Dec. 1999 and it still feels like yesterday.

I'm hoping to go to shul this Saturday to recite the Hagomel prayer so I'll take this Misheberach list with me. I was hesitant about reciting hagomel just yet, as I have yet to go through chemo. That to me will hopefully mark my safe passage, but my Rabbi said I should do it for having gone through surgery and come out okay. I can do it again once chemo is done.
Thanksgiving is not a Jewish holiday per se, but I do wish everyone a peaceful holiday.

Just bumping this in case anyone new comes along and wants to add their name. I took the list this morning when I went to celebrate my 30th Bat Mitzvah anniversary - so long ago!

Done. I'm sorry you have to join the list. We were diagnosed about a week apart it seems. There is another thread called Jewish Warrior Sisters that you're welcome to check out.

Can we remove names? I really don't feel mine needs to be here anymore... but I would like to add a friend of mine, Sima bat Channah. Thank you.

Thanks for starting this chain!
