The“La Cura sono Io [I am the Cure]” association has created a line of hats for women going through cancer treatment. Thanks to the contribution of the Cattolica Foundation
With the “La Cura sono Io [I am the Cure]” association she created a line of hats, the “Cappelli ad Art [Art Hair]”, for women going through cancer treatment or affected by other conditions. The initiative was started thanks to the contribution of the Cattolica Foundation.
New appointment of the Cattolica Foundation with the initiative “In the heart of the company”, launched in 2014 to meet people and associations of the local and national Third Sector. Friday, 27 October, in the Bisoffi Auditorium, Maria Teresa Ferrari gave her testimony. She is a journalist and cultural organiser who after experiencing cancer decided to make her smile and creativity available to help women in her same condition.
Maria Teresa created the association “La Cura sono Io”, with the objective of not allowing the cancer, in her case breast cancer, from “stealing hope”. Strength, but also gentleness, are necessary she remembers to fight it, “and there is no need for aggressiveness, because it is with the heart that these battles are won”.
The courage and the strength of gentleness, she noted, help us to overcome the “most difficult moments, of which there are plenty, but one must always maintain a positive attitude, knowing that the light is within us and does not go out, ever”.
Thanks to the contribution of the Cattolica Foundation, Maria Teresa created a line of hats, the “Cappelli ad Arte”, born with the goal of “highlighting the beauty of all women, even those suffering from various conditions or undergoing cancer treatment”.
The sale of the hats, which is done directly at the Atelier Corso di Vicolo Pomodoro 10 in Verona or in the companion shop of the website www.lacurasonoio.it, supports the activity of the association with the same name and makes it possible to emphasize the quality and lifestyle of the “travel companions”, as Maria Teresa calls them, and in particular not to “give up on inner and outer beauty and love”.
