It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a fellow World Mom, Neta. Neta, who was a good friend of our contributor, Susie Newday in Israel, lost her fight today with metatastic breast cancer. Our thoughts and sincere condolences from around the world are with her family and friends today.
Neta volunteered an interview about her life of living with metatastic breast cancer on World Moms Blog with the hopes of encouraging more mothers to get tested.
Neta sat down with World Mom contributor, Susie Newday in Israel to talk about living her life with metastasis breast cancer.
Goodbye, Neta. Thank you so much for letting us get to know you and for sharing what you knew with all of us. For that, we are forever grateful.

So sorry to hear of her passing. Even though I knew she was in a hospice and it was coming, it’s hard to accept that tragedies like this really do happen.
So very sad …a harsh reality check and a dose of perspective that simply hurts my heart today ….
This is so sad. I hope and pray she is in a better place with peace around her.
My love and best wishes to all her family and friends.
Even if you “know its coming” one is never quite ready for it – I know because I was at my mom-in-laws bedside when she passed in August last year. Although we keep telling ourselves that we’re glad she’s no longer suffering, it doesn’t really make the loss easier to bear.
I do believe, however, that all the genuine love and prayers from around the world are like a hug – a huge comfort at a time of loss – so I add my love and prayers to those of everyone else.
What a loss! Such a sad news!
Best wishes to her family…so sad to hear this new 🙁
Thinking of Neta and her family. So glad that we got to know her through her interview. What an impact she has made on us all.
