We are reaching out for a friend, Anastasi Siotas, to help out our dear friend, Rosmarie Hausherr, who is in great need of physical support and care while undergoing medical treatments to help stabilize her spine.

Rosmarie was suddenly stricken with several spinal fractures soon after moving into her new apartment this past March, and was incapacitated for many months thereafter. Although improving, her condition is still severe and precarious. She is not able to lift anything over 1-2 lbs, movement is extremely limited and energy is difficult to sustain for more than a few hours. She still needs a great deal of rest, care and support, so much so she has not been able to fully unpack and get her home in order. 

Besides being a good friend and Feldenkrais colleague, Anastasi is a master craftsman and has offered to go to Switzerland to help set up Rosmarie’s home, and to aid in any way he can to put a support system into place to help maintain her energy, mobility and independence. However, the trip from New York City to Switzerland is quite expensive. Anastasi will be staying with Rosmarie from Dec. 24th to January 9th.

The goal is to raise $2,500. Funds collected will directly cover Anastasi’s travel costs and any necessary out-of-pocket living expenses during his stay. Any amount will be incredibly appreciated, $10, $20, $50, $100 or whatever your budget will allow.

The irony of her condition is for over the past twenty years Rosmarie has dedicated her life to helping others, first in New York City and then Lucerne, through her work as a Feldenkrais practitioner (a body movement method), in which she has helped bring a better quality of life to countless people with an array of physical problems from back problems to chronic pain to neurological injuries. Now she needs our help to maintain her own quality of life, so please give what you can to support Anastasi in helping Rosmarie through one of the greatest crises of her life.

In advance thank you for your support.  With heartfelt gratitude!

Helen Louise Azzara and Tina Fong
