This is my first time participating in a 5k. Rachel Minkove is the motivation for my doing so.
Throughout my lifetime, there have been many people who have inspired me, but since this is a 5k devoted to cholim, my inspiration for participating and accomplishing this goal is Rachel Minkove.
Her mom, Judy, and I go way back, having roomed together several years in Stern College. Back then we shared lots of laughs and some tears as well. During our college years we worried about exams, about papers, about Jude's "Observer" deadlines, about guys etc. Looking back now on those "stressful" times reminds me of just how easy we actually had it.
We each married at 22. Judy married Judah. I married Norman. We became wives. We became mothers. We became professionals. From there, life just took over. Years flew by in the blink of any eye.
Fast forward 30 something years and Judy's beautiful daughter, Rachel, is diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Rach is an inspiration to anyone who knows her.
She is a warrior. Every day for the past several years, she has been fighting a monster in her body. Yet nothing stops her. What a brave front she puts on.
Rach, we all pray that you keep fighting the battle so that you ultimately win the war!
