For breast cancer awareness month I talk with Elana Silber, the CEO of Sharsheret. She shares what we need to know about our own risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers and what we can do about it, what the Holocaust has to do with cancer, and we discuss genetic testing for cancer risk.
I talk with Chavie Bruk,an adoptive Mom, about the circumstances surrounding her children’s adoption. She shares what it’s like to feel connected to an infant she hadn’t birthed, how that changed when they got older, and how she manages when one of her children says she doesn’t want to be a part of the family.
I talk with Rachel Safer, an adoptee, about the circumstances surrounding her birth and adoption. She shares how being adopted affects her relationships with her mom, what led her to look for and how she found her birth mom and the things never to say to adopted people and adoptive families.
I talk with Sarah Rivkah Kohn, the founder of Links, about grief. She shares how losing her mother at age 9 led to publishing and distributing a magazine geared towards families struggling with loss and how that grew into an organization providing the support she never had.
