What is the meaning of Ikigai?
The Japanese word Ikigai is composed of two words: iki, which refers to “life”, and kai which means “the realization of what one expects and desires”. According to Japan’s millenary culture, we all have an ikigai, a reason to exist or to be, to live life. That is, finding the meaning of our existence, our mission, something that gives us the strength to get out of bed each morning. Our Ikigai is to fight every day to improve the lives of so many patients that are affected by Lymphedema.
Where will the raised funds be allocated?
By purchasing this wine, part of the benefits will go to the Research Institute of the Sant Pau Hospital (IR-HSCSP)-Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) for the Lymphedema Research program led by Dr. Jaume Masià. All the contributions will aim to finance research projects developed in our center and also through a competitive selection process for projects from other scientific recognition centers in the world. We greatly appreciate your generosity and sensitivity for this type of pathology.
