Edilane & Fernando

I’m Edilane, I was born in Brazil, when I was 19, I moved to Portugal.

In 2009, I met Fernando, Portuguese by nationality, my garden and the love of my life. I wasn’t sure about it because of all the differences between us, culture, age, and we found out that doesn’t matter.

We married in 2013 and in 2015 we moved to the UK, lovely country by the way, although was hard to adapt, our life was based in union and we always overcome the adversities living our moments of happiness. In 2018, we experienced the greatest challenge of our lives. We were in Brazil and a day before our return, Fernando had a massive stroke…

At that moment I felt my world had collapsed, I looked at the situation and felt anguish. Doctors didn’t give any good news and the chance of Fernando surviving was just based in my faith, all the moments together, I trusted in God and every prayer… was just 30% I couldn’t lose him.

Fernando left hospital after 37 days. Victory! Yes! I can say that! Something happened. By the love of my God, we still go on. The rehabilitation was not that easy. Back to UK. We were alone and learned to readapt. 

Our faith and love was the start to our story of overcoming. Then we found Rosetta Life and this Odysseys project and that made us live a bit more again. Wonderful!!!

Every day is an evolution. For each tear, the will to win.
