Dear friends all over the world,
We need your help to support one of our best friends Vera Anastassakou. Vera is an amazing person, full of love for everyone around her. She is my role model in life because of the way she accepts whatever life brings to her and she transforms it into a gift.
6 years ago life brought her the cancer. During all those years she did five surgeries, lots of chemotherapy, treatments and so on.... But she received all these as a journey that transforms her self into the best person she could be. Lately she got diagnosed with another tumor and instead of being depressed, sad, hopeless, she received it again as another reason to celebrate life.
So in order to find the money for the required treatment (cyber knife, that only private hospitals do in Greece),she called all her artist friends, and friends of friends to collaborate in the creation of a festival that would celebrate life and art.
The response to participate was bigger than expected and so the festival will run for three days instead of one that was initially planned. It is called "The hero inside us" and will take place on the 5-6-7 of April at Fabrica Athens, in Athens. All the money that will be collected will be given to Vera for her treatment.
I will participate with my video performance "Pray Love Try Hope" that has only been shown in public last April during an exhibition at Tate Modern in London. But I felt this is not enough, So alongside with Miranda Zissimopoulou we decided to create this funding and to ask for your help, to help Vera, by collecting as much money as possible to contribute to this therapy that we all so much want to be the last one.
I am really counting on you my friends all over the world and I am sure we can make this happen!
Huge thank and endless love to all of you.
