Cancer Didn’t Win
As the Jewish New Year begins, so does another chapter in our families lives. Michael does something he didn’t think he would be able to only 7 months after being diagnosed with Melanoma Cancer – COACH BASKETBALL AGAIN!
Of course, I knew he would. He lives for basketball. He breathes for basketball. He IS basketball. I knew because I believed.
And as the sun rose today and I touched my new necklace I created which reads, BELIEVE, I never stopped believing Michael wouldn’t beat cancer and be back on the court doing what he does best and loves the most, COACH BASKETBALL!
To top off this significant day in our lives and in our journey along the road of cancer, Michaels come back was nothing short of perfection! He coached a double header with both his Little Tigers Team and his Varsity Tiger Team. Yes, Michael coaches his youngest son (the cute blond in the middle) but he coaches as many of the 2nd Graders at his school that will play in hope that someday, Michael will still be coaching THEM as they all play VARSITY basketball for Michael. The LIttle Tigers are a 10 year in the making team!
Another goal for Michael has always been to coach year round until our youngest graduates High School and was coached by his dad the entire way! Only 10 more years left until Graduation day – we will take all 10 years, gladly!

It seems only fitting that on the Eve of Rosh Hashanah, The Jewish New Year, where one wears white and eats apples and honey in hopes of a sweet New Year to come, Michael walked back into the place that makes him, him and onto the court he loves maybe more than life itself, the basketball court! G-D has a funny way of showing us to BELIEVE but I’d say today was just another day of reminding us how mysterious and magical life truly is!
