How is it going now?
Despite the fact that Suze's life has turned 180 degrees, she is certainly not sitting still. Taking classes, playing the panpipes, painting and even driving a car is possible again. Suze has also been busy making poems for a while. 24 poems about the first 24 months of her life after sepsis. Later she started making paintings to accompany each poem. These 24 paintings and poems Suze has compiled into a beautiful book.
A book of her own - about loss, overcoming and love
In her book 'On loss, overcoming and love' Suze tells her story in a moving and admirable way, in a combination of poetry and art. As a result of the book Suze was asked to give lectures at service clubs, care institutions and church communities and so the ball started rolling and more lectures were planned, until corona caused the lectures to stop at the moment. Despite corona, Suze is not giving up on reaching her goal. The proceeds from the sale of the book she spends on her greatest wish
: a tricycle for a young person with a disability. For this purpose, Suze has set up a foundation where the proceeds of the books and the lectures go: the Foundation Bicycling for Young People with Disabilities (www.suzekorver.nl
As soon as it is possible again, Suze hopes to be able to give lectures again. After all, her situation remains the same, but her story can inspire and teach many others how to cope. "I have learned and been allowed to experience, that being lucky in life is not about having, but about giving. I am a grateful person!
