Sigal loves sunflowers and the color blue. She celebrated her last birthday (18 years old) in this world on July 26, 2019, four months after she was diagnosed with brain cancer. Sigal left behind her physical self on August 21, 2019. Her aunt Sherley Haratz is one of my dearest friends; I am walking the 5k to honor Sigal and to thank my beautiful friend for always sharing her light with me. The following poem was written by Sigal’s mom, Einat Haratz:
Sigalita, nos dejaste una gran leccion de VIDA
NOS ENSENASTE A VIVIR INTENSAMENTE CADA SEGUNDO!!!
NOS ENSENASTE A VIVIR LOS MEJORES MOMENTO CON LAS COSAS MAS SIMPLES!
NOS ENSENASTE QUE CON HUMILDAD, AMOR AL PROJIMO Y UNA SONRISA VERDADERA SE LOGRA MUCHOS PROPOSITOS Y METAS!
GRACIAS GRACIAS POR LOS GRANDES MOMENTOS DE ALEGRIA QUE NOS DISTE
TE AMO MI PRINCESA
