The Ambassadors / MARIJA LILI GRIČAR


Name and surname: Marija-Lili Gričar

Occupation: higher administrative worker (currently pensioner)

Where do I live: in a paradise called Zgornjesavska dolina and the place is called Gozd Martuljek

My hobbies: knitting, picking of mushrooms, forest fruits and herbs, gardening, mountaineering, yoga, reading books, etc.

I am proud of:

  • My family, which is composed of my husband and father of my two children, my two grandsons and two granddaughters, my son-in-law and my daughter-in-law;
  • That we created everything we own (including our house) with our knowledge and our hands;
  • Myself, that I’ve earned my pension which gives me financial independence.

Pleasures in my life: that I lived to meet my grandchildren and that I am able to do everything I need for active life.

Why have I decided to become a Svit Programme ambassador: it was right after colon cancer was found with the help of Svit Programme. I didn’t feel any problems before that. After the surgery, which followed this discovery, I didn’t need any oncological treatment. I presented this experience to my fellow citizens of Gozd Martuljek together with charge nurse Vasiljka Kokalj and later in other places of Slovenia.

I would like to invite all to respond to the Svit Programme invitation and to follow the instructions and enable themselves to get acquainted with their own health status. In case of discovered cancers, the treatment is immediate and successful.

Svit Programme saves lives, it brings people together and it makes them happier.
