How it started…

The Fight

The fight started in July 2016, when Dimitris Lois was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. After two rounds of chemotherapy, the doctors concluded that a bone marrow transplantation was required to avoid the constant relapse of the disease. The need was dire: Without a new bone marrow there was no hope of survival; delaying the transplantation would mean another round of chemotherapy, with its potential complications.

As the weeks passed by without a compatible donor, Dimitris began to understand how difficult it is to find a match – sometimes, in some regions the chances are very slim. He was fortunate enough to find one – even though it took longer than we wished. During this wait, as well as during the next few months when he bravely fought for his life every single day, he decided to dedicate his life to a new purpose. That was when the seeds of Choose Life were sown.

THE DREAM

Throughout his illness, he continued to develop his vision. He wanted to create lasting impact for those affected by leukemia, reminding everyone to stay positive and to never stop dreaming, even in the hardest times, foregrounding the power of giving, and inviting everyone to choose life.

This charitable organization –that he named after his favorite phrase, “Choose Life”– is the fruit of his vision.
