Actions speak louder than words. Often the lessons we learn come from the examples that our parents show us. We can take these lessons and build upon them and then at a point in time we become the person we are.
In this episode we share the experience of Malka Silver and her very full life. Inspired by the work ethic her parents displayed, surviving the Holocaust and making the most of life, Malka has been an inspiration to many through her own life journey.
When Malka was 22 with a young family, her mother succumbed to Ovarian Cancer, her mother was only forty-nine. At thirty Malka was diagnosed with third stage Breast Cancer. Her children then were ten, eight and eight months. Malka plunged into a deep dark depression, and the gruelling twelve months of Chemotherapy treatment contributed to her depression. Her grit, determination and support of her family got her through. She went on to inspire and help others to take on the challenges of life.
Malka greatest achievements is being a wife, mother of three, Buba of seven, a passionate volunteer guide at JHC, a custodian of her father’s memory, selling her artwork internationally, an author of her father’s memoir “L’Chaim” which translates to “To Life” and soon the author of her Stepmother's book.
She is now also a contributing author to a new book, “Change is not a scary word” where she documents what it takes to make it through change when life is most challenging.
