On this episode I spoke with Malka Silver about her inspiring change in mindset after her cancer diagnosis and the goal she promised herself, while living with a mental health condition, and she shares with us about her contribution as a Change Influencer author for ‘Change is not a Scary Word.’
Malka Silver is my guest today.Malka is a close long-term friend who I know a lot about already, we’ve been friends for over 20 years, so I may even learn more today.
She contributes her courage and strength to her parents, who instilled in her, love, integrity, passion and conviction. Malka was born in Germany to two victims of the Holocaust.
At eighteen she married the love of her life, Sam, in Melbourne Australia. They produced three children, worked hard, yet in the early days struggled to keep their heads above water.
At thirty Malka was diagnosed with third stage Breast Cancer. Her children then were ten, eight, and eight months old.
Eight years prior, her mother at 49 passed away to Ovarian Cancer. At the time Malka was twenty-two with two children young children.
Malka plunged into a deep dark depression, and the grueling twelve months of Chemotherapy treatment contributed to her depression.
Malka claims her greatest achievement is being a wife, mother of three, Buba of seven, a passionate volunteer guide at the Jewish Holocaust Centre (in Melbourne), a custodian of her father’s memory, and selling her artwork internationally, and an author of her father’s memoir “L’Chaim” and soon the author of her Stepmothers book.
Malka is also a co-author in our collaborative book; CHANGE is not a Scary Word book. She changed her world in an instant, and you will be able to learn how she did this in her amazing story in this book.
Malka has also studied Fine Arts. She paints, does live drawing, craft, tapestries, and now writes, and is a keynote speaker. She loves to travel, and currently as we speak is traveling with Sam around Australia for twelve months.
