“It was a true spiritual experienc that I will never forget – traveling to Rome and the Vatican, meeting Pope Francis and shaking his hand. It was an honor to meet Dr. Ramon Tallaj as well as the doctors and personnel of SOMOS. The cherry on top was having artist Raul Di Blasio perform for all of us at the end. All in all, I had an unbelievable time and am grateful for the opportunity. Arrivederci!”
