Anna Rathkopf

mother, dual citizen and woman with breast cancer under 40

I was born in Prague, Czech Republic. I grew up in Prague. But I married a New Yorker, and a decade later, I became an American.

Three years ago we started a new adventure when our son, Jesse, was born. Our little guy is growing up bilingual in a city made of the whole world.

We recently found out there is yet another adventure for us. But not an adventure we were seeking. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
