Anastasis means ‘to rise up’, ‘to rise up again’, ‘to be reborn again’, ‘resurrection’, to be ‘resurrected from a debilitating illness’.

To watch helplessly while your little girl’s life is in the balance , can be any parent’s nightmare.
To have faith in something that is believed that cannot be seen, to be there when all else can fail, and to be finally rescued through what seems like a personal nightmare, is now seen as a past memory that makes one shudder at the recall of a memory so  vivid to already be a few years later.
