B.Livers

B.LIVE, B.Strong, B.Happy

Emotion, feeling and cheer are the best ingredients to understand that any one of us can and should do something to create a better world. In this sense, meeting kids affected by serious chronic conditions is a unique experience, because their stories provide examples of extraordinary resilience and courage. Getting to know them can inspire us to face our existence with great energy and the desire to change our own lives and the lives of others.  Two young B. Livers will take turns telling their stories on stage along with Bill Niada, President of the Near Foundation, Sofia Segre Reinach and Martina De Marco, coordinators of the B.Live project, Giancarlo Perego, director of the magazine Il Bullone, and doctor Paolo Cornaglia Ferraris, a specialist in hematology and pediatrics.

B.Livers

are a group of kids suffering from serious chronic illnesses who face life with passion and courage, spreading examples of strength, positivity and good nature. Through projects with important companies and their monthly newspaper, Il Bullone, they spread a unique and powerful perspective on their own lives and the lives of the people they meet. The B.Livers are part of the B.LIVE (bliveworld.org) project created by the Near Foundation. Their first book, La compagnia del Bullone (2017), was published by Sperling & Kupfer.
