Even with the disease it's valid, what Bonatti said about the experiences in the mountains. Everyone live their own experience in a unique and unrepeatable way, whether a training, a simple walk or climbing an unexpected 8,000m peak.
There are no goals in life that are given, even the most trivial ones are the result of commitment and effort.
Pages that while throwing out fear and pain, express courage, strength and desire to believe in the future.
Nine years have passed since the discovery of cancer, the time has come for Paola to give her intimate experience with the disease to others by writing pages full of meaning, aimed at helping also and above all the ones on the other side. Where time is suspended, punctuated only by therapies, where life changes its rhythms, priorities and desires, there we must learn to help. A help that is not intrusive, that is not too much in ways and times. It is important to learn the discreet closeness that says softly and lovingly: "I am here".
