Cooley’s Anemia:  Thank You Hermes Expo

 

 

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

Dear Mr. Kotrotsios,

 

We first came to meet on the professional social media site Linked In and I received your email about Hermes Expo International.  I called you that day to find out more if this will be a good avenue for me to advertise my professional services in real estate.  When you mentioned the numbers of Greek Americans participating in this event I realized the importance of having presence for the nonprofit foundation I am Board of Directors, the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation that advocates for the genetic blood disease, Thalassemia. 

 

I remember your response “I know Cooley’s Anemia” which led me to saying “I have Thalassemia” and then Mr. Kotrotsios you offered us to exhibit gratis because you knew how this disease has affected our Greek Community and the importance of educating and bringing awareness on what it is to be a carrier of Thalassemia. 

 

At this event you have mentioned our foundations name during the meeting sessions, you have introduced to us other prominent Greek Americans who are part of AHEPA and they as well have embraced our foundation and the disease.  There is no cure to Thalassemia but for me what is a source of cure is awareness and love.  You have given us both and we thank you Mr. Kotrotsios for your kindness and empathy.  This is what is to be Greek and I am honored to know you as it lives within you. 

 

May God bless your initiatives for Hermes Expo International to grow in many other industries led by Greek Americans and for the prominent Greek Americans to give back to the youth as they will carry this torch through generations. 

 

Best in Health,

 

Maria Hadjidemetriou

Board of Directors for Cooley’s Anemia Foundation

Executive Committee Member and Patient of Thalassemia

 

 

Editor’s Note:  It was a pleasure and our duty to work with you and your team to build awareness in our community for this institution that helps people from the Eastern Mediterranean. We really like to see this on center stage again, and we are happy that we were able to connect you with proper people that want to help. One of the greatest organizations that was involved was AHEPA and we are going to promote Cooley’s Anemia again, hoping in the future we could do many joint effort events that benefit the entire community.
