My last Dream
Since Maria was born in 1994, she has had sensorimotor neuropathy type 3, a hereditary nerve disease that causes muscle wasting. She has been ventilated for many years and can now only move her eyes but she still is able to communicate with us and lives nevertheless a self-determined life as well as her illness allows. Maria lives in Munich with her family, who originally comes from Corfu, Greece. It's been 24 years since she was last there. Her illness no longer allowed her to travel.
Her longing, her desire to come back to the Ionian Sea, to Corfu and her big greek family, was so deeply felt. Maria is an extremely strong personality and she managed to inspire us to help make her dream come true.
With the help of crowdfunding, the almost impossible has become possible. She spent three weeks in Corfu this summer. Maria even enjoyed a swim in the sea on a homemade raft and had a wonderful time with her family.
Thank you Maria for letting us accompany you on this adventure. You have shown everyone that dreams are worth believing in, not to give up.
