Sometimes even the harsh side of politics bends in the face of the harsh and unjust face of life. Fofi Gennimata "passed away" at the age of just 56, shortly after 12 noon, today, World Breast Cancer Day.

How ironic but at the same time how loud the message about the need to shield the National Health System, strengthen preventive medicine and early diagnosis, issues that Fofi Gennimata was constantly talking about, having tasted the bitter glass of her parents' separation. . Both stricken with cancer. Her father, George Gennimatas, passed away in 1994 at the age of just 55, a few months earlier his wife, Kakia, had lost the battle with the incurable disease at the age of 54.

The mourning for the parents and the anguish for her children…

F. Gennimata herself did not hesitate to talk about her own struggle when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. She bravely gave her battle, without, however, hiding the human agony, the agony of the mother. "I was horrified when I thought that my children, whom I had acquired with so much effort, would suddenly be left alone. "It's very painful," she said in an interview.

On April 25, 2021, she wanted to make her last moving post on the 27th anniversary of the death of G. Gennimatas, stating, among other things: coronavirus pandemic. In the age of fear for life, of great inequalities, of the restriction of rights and freedoms, of artificial aggravation, we, the Democratic faction, have the man and the homeland at the center of our choices ".

This concern for the homeland and its people is her own political legacy as well as the ethos that the candidates for the presidency of the Movement for Change are called upon to show. To stand up to the circumstances. In this "different" and largely charged internal succession race, they will be judged not only by their programmatic positions but also by their ethos, political dignity and ensuring the unity of the democratic party. They owe it to Fofi Gennimata.
