"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights."

I would like to introduce you to a friend. Her name is Cícera, a 46 year old Brazilian, full of joy and will to live in order to face all the difficulties that she can encounter on a daily basis. And they are not negligible, I am a witness to this! Since her birth, she has had a disease called "osteogenesis imperfecta". It is a disorder characterized by extreme bone fragility due to a congenital defect. Because of this, her life constantly alternates between hospitalizations and rehabilitation.

During her childhood and up to adulthood, Cícera always had the help of her family, but with the passage of time and the aging of her parents, even very simple tasks become increasingly burdensome.

For a long time her mother was able to rely on Cícera for household chores, but due to the development of the disease, Cícera is now more and more limited in her movements, with a marked loss of autonomy. Since her family has limited resources, even with the social security that Cícera receives, they do not have the financial means to call on homecare assistants to help her.

"Not being able to stand up at all seriously complicates my daily life. You begin not to be able to get up in the morning alone, no longer be able to wash yourself, dress yourself alone. Shopping or cooking alone is really complicated,” she says. As if all this were not enough, she lost one eye.

 

Cícera uses a wheelchair to move around or go to the hospital, but she is always dependent on someone to accompany her.

From now on, Cícera needs an electric wheelchair in order to regain her autonomy.

"What I know is that despite my illness, I love life. Even in difficult times, I always try to cling to all those things, big or small, that I am able to do. Despite it all. I will always fight for this right to life, to happiness, despite illness. Even if some days it takes a lot of patience and will, I do not grow discouraged. "

We count on you to help Cícera regain her autonomy.

Bonjour à tous, Bien que nous n’ayons pas réussi à collecter la somme demandée via les Projets Rosalie, la providence a pu quand même nous venir en aide. Nous vous partageons un mot de remerciement de Cicera, que vous avez tout de même pu aider ! « Madame et Monsieur Tout au long de ma vie, j'ai toujours eu une grande difficulté pour me déplacer. Mon plus grand rêve était d'avoir un fauteuil roulant confortable et plus léger pour faciliter mes déplacements. Aujourd'hui, mon bonheur est complet, car grâce à vous, j’ai réussi à faire de mon rêve une réalité. Ma famille et moi-même, nous sommes profondément reconnaissants pour l'accomplissement de ce rêve. »
