Today on Tablet

Israeli and Palestinian breast cancer survivors unite

Print Email

Today on Tablet, Ruth Ebenstein has a very moving story about how Israeli and Palestinian breast-cancer survivors are finding common ground as they share their experiences with treatment and recovery.

All of us have been brought together by a women’s health empowerment coalition because we have more than cancer in common: We share experience with regional conflict. Although we have been given explicit instructions to avoid conversing directly about our respective histories of war and bloodshed, those histories loom. Yet some inaudible sense of camaraderie and deep understanding also permeates the room.

It’s a great read.
