Why chose the ARTÈRE Foundation?

“My grandfather suffered a stroke at the age of 64. Unfortunately, he was left with important disabilities. He was lucky to have the support of his loved ones which made a tremendous difference in his rehabilitation. The ARTÈRE Foundation is most dear to me because it contributes to the support that each and every one should have access to, not only people with a stroke but also their loved ones.”

Why chose the ARTÈRE Foundation?

“The ARTÈRE Foundation is dear to me personally, like many others who have known loved ones who have had this illness that has an impact on the whole family. I hope that I can help the Foundation grow since this cause, I believe, is largely underfinanced compared to other health causes.”
