Unique Doctor’s Orders for Treatment of Cancer: Sign up for Tehillim Kollel

I am a 55 year old man, with six children.  My wife and I have a few married children, whom I support, and another few still living at home. All of them need me.  A few months ago, I just didn’t feel right.  After pushing off the symptoms for a few weeks, diagnosing the pain as a virus, and hoping they would go away on their own, I decided to pay a visit to my family doctor, an ehrliche man, hoping he would tell me to take two aspirin and call him in the morning.  But he sent me for further testing and called me up with the devastating results: cancer.   I was in deep shock.  You know it can happen, but until it happens to you… All I could think about were my children and my wife, and how alone they would feel.

While I was in the grips of terror, the doctor kept on talking, recommending that I start treatment immediately, as the earlier we begin the process, the better.  But then he added a further suggestion:  “Many of my patients who have undergone chemo for cancer treatments did one more thing that aided them in their return to health: they signed up for membership at Tehillim Kollel.”  I couldn’t believe what I was hearing from my family doctor! His suggestion snapped me out of my stupor.  Was he serious?

He went on to explain the spiritual benefits of having many people davening for you each day, the extra protection it provides, and how many of his patients have seen miraculous, unbelievable results.  “I recommend that you do the same,” he said, before hanging up the phone.  I followed all my doctor’s orders, from the treatment schedule to signing up for Tehillim Kollel.  I am awaiting my yeshua and hope to share Besuros Tovos soon.
