I would like you to meet Giovanni Verga and Rosanna Lupieri. It was the death of Maria Letizia Verga (Giovani’s daughter) that gave the start to the Dream to do something better, to do something more for other children with blood cancer. And so, 40 years ago, the Maria Letizia Verga Committee began to exist, which built the Maria Letizia Verga Center clinic, where our Timoshka was treated.
Today we met to say goodbye, because we are moving on, across the ocean.
Rosanna also told her story. Her son Luka underwent treatment in the 70-80s. She talked about medicine and medical service. And when her Luca went to Heaven, Rosanna was one of the first to join the Maria Letizia Verga Committee. It was the desire to radically change something – and they did it!
They are an example and inspiration for me, for us. They proved in practice that with God’s help it is real. That the system can be changed. That the suffering of children can be reduced.
In a nutshell, we agreed that they will definitely come to the opening of the “Timosha’s Smile” Clinic. Because they are our “mother”, and we are their “child”.
See you soon, dear Giovanni and Rosanna! Thank you for everything! From all Ukrainian families, thank you very much! ❤️
It is through cooperation with the Italian clinic that the world’s largest St. Jude Foundation (for the fight against childhood cancer) in the USA opens its doors for us.
God never stops to amaze me… ❤️
