Saw your story on NBC today with Natalie Morales. Your love shines through your eyes and your angel of a wife..Made me realize so much that divides families is so petty. I immediately called my daughter in tears to tell her I loved her

I listen to your song EVERY DAY!
My 16 year old son reminded me to sing last night, even though I have a very bad cold right now and can barely talk. I sang your song, and he said, “Mom, your voice came back while you were singing!” You shine a light for me every day. Thank you. Robin

Your story is so close to my heart. When my husband and children were visiting San Diego, it was a few months after Ron’s ALS diagnosis. We met the rabbi from the Chabad on Coronado one morning and we spoke of you and your battle with this disease. Your story is an inspiration to all those who are too familiar with this disease. May Hashem watch over you and your family and give you all that you need during this fight.

yitzi, as your cousin from australia, i stopped in los angeles especially to visit you, even though we had just 15-20 minutes together with you, you made us feel so special by receiving us with such a warm smile and texting to us a few jokes and smiles! I want you to know yitzi, what you did for us in those few minutes was very special and precious, and you made us feel like a million dollars just for stopping by! you are an inspiration to all of us and your unwavering fortitude in this challeging situation has taught us… Read more »

thinking of others
July 31, 2014 1:41 pm

Look at the Rebbe’s shaliach, a true dugma Chaya of a chosid: yitzi’s letter exudes ahavas Yisroel; he is thinking of others and how to inspire people to be involved in bikur cholim
I give tzedaka and daven every day for your complete refua shleima Yosef Yitzchak ben brocho. And now, thanks to this letter I will, try to be more aware of visiting or phoning those who need a refua shleima – in your zechus!

Thank you Yitzi
July 31, 2014 1:06 pm

You are a true inspiration to us all. Your words inspire hundreds, if not thousands. Keep writing. And the Aibershter doesn’t remain a Baal Chov. He will surely send you a miraculous refuah. Keep it up Yitzi, you mean a lot to many people who may have never met you before.

Amen
