What is the Sunflower Effect?
It’s not up to you to add days to the life of a person who has an incurable illness, but you can make each one of those last days count, so they don’t simply pass on but rather each day can be lived to the fullest possible.
What makes you happy? To be cared for, to be loved, to have your every need looked after, to be understood, to feel like smiling, to feel no pain…
You know how to care, listen, love, and understand, right? So, you have the ability to give life to those that are close to you, to comfort those who are in pain, anguish or alone.
The sunflower, symbol of palliative care, is a flower that always turns toward the Sun to fill itself with energy. It represents vitality, love, and a positive attitude in the face of adversity.
