Making A Difference

Making a Difference

On the 24th of November 2015, Petru lost the most important person in her life, her father. In May of the same year, he had been diagnosed with one of the most devastating diseases of our time - Motor Neuron Disease (MND), also called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Petru helped take care of her father until the day he passed on. It was an experience that would change her life forever.

MND Facts:

• It’s a disease that causes the nerve cells to waste away or die and no longer send messages to a person’s muscles.
• MND leaves people trapped in their own bodies. Unable to walk, talk or feed themselves, while their brain is still fully functioning.
• 300 000 people alive today will be diagnosed and die from MND.
• Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with MND.
• Every 90 minutes someone dies from MND.
• There´s no known cure.

Losing her father to this disease led Petru to dedicate the POINT line of products to him. The POINT initiative’s aim is to be a vehicle to create awareness, and to support various MND foundations, globally. POINT will contribute by fundraising, creating awareness and providing personal support to the families affected. Petru would like to invite you to join us in making a difference to families around the world currently experiencing the same pain and suffering caused by MND we experienced. You can be part of this exciting new project which is destined to touch and change lives. Here is just one way – join Petru on the Camino de Santiago.

Walk the way with pHformula

For a thousand years, the Camino de Santiago or the ’Way of St. James’ has brought pilgrims from all corners of Europe, across the north of Spain to Santiago de Compostela. They come to pay homage to the Apostle St. James at his final resting place in the city’s beautiful Cathedral. Walking the Camino has become a modern day ‘rite of passage’ and a life-changing experience for countless pilgrims from around the world.

Everyone walking the path is called a pilgrim, regardless of whether they’re doing it for religious or spiritual reasons, or just want an outdoor adventure. The journey can have a profound impact on the pilgrims who walk its path. We invite you to walk the way with pHformula, 15 JUNE 2019, covering 113 km over 7 days.

"I will be walking the Camino in remembrance of my father who passed away from ALS/MND. POINT by pHformula, was launched and dedicated to my father as a vehicle to create awareness and support to various ALS/MND foundations, globally. Walking the Camino will give us the opportunity to raise more awareness and show our appreciation for the contributions already made to various ALS/MND associations around the world. Please join us."
