My Wife Has Cancer – And I’m Going for a Bike Ride’ is the attention-grabbing, emotion-provoking title of the October 12, 2012, blog entry written by 45-year-old avid blogger, biker and runner Yarden Frankl on his website “Crossing the Yarden” (www.crossingtheyarden.com). In June of 2011, Yarden’s wife Stella, also 45, was taken to a Jerusalem hospital for testing after experiencing unbearable stomach pain. Fearing it was something serious, doctors told the Frankls to cancel the US vacation they had planned to take with their four children.

Several days later, the family received the diagnosis: Stella had incurable late stage stomach cancer. Doctors immediately began aggressive chemotherapy.
