TRANSFORMING DARKNESS INTO LIGHT:

BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS TRANSCEND

THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT

 

Diagnosed with breast cancer while nursing her baby, Ruth Ebenstein feared that she would die. Lumpectomy scars still healing, she joined an Israeli-Palestinian breast cancer support group, hoping to find something "good" in cancer. She found wonderful: Ibtisam Erekat, a Muslim Palestinian woman whom she calls kin. Ruth models how we can conquer the lines that divide us & transform darkness into light.
