La Spezia – Little Camilla was his world. And when her beautiful little girl tested positive for coronavirus, her mother was always by her side. The little girl was fine. But he needed her constantly. And Sara was her hug, her smile, her everything. Day after day, waiting to be able to return to go out, to walk in the sun, to see the dolphins, which they both adored. He could never have imagined that it would be the last testimony of an infinite love. Unfortunately, you can die at the age of 37 from the complications of the infection. And Sara Funaro, who was also attentive, and was aware of the first ailments by herself, unfortunately, is gone. He had contracted the infection two months ago, from his little girl, just two years. He controlled the saturation. She realized how it was going down and informed the doctor.
She tested positive for Covid, and was hospitalized immediately. First in Sarzana. Then, given the seriousness of the diagnosis, she was transferred to Genoa, to the Covid resuscitation ward, where extracorporeal blood circulation treatment is available. It is called Ecmo. It performs the functions of the heart and lungs when an acute respiratory emergency is in progress. It is a therapy used when the context is serious. And unfortunately Sara’s clinical picture was severe. The young woman remained attached to that machine, to that artificial lung, for weeks. It was hoped that he might be able to save himself. The friends have never stopped hoping, to inquire, to think about it. Until his heart held up two weeks ago. He stopped.
She was revived, but hopes of being able to save her dwindled by the day. The margins were getting smaller and smaller. And despite all attempts to bring her back, they failed to keep her alive. The whole city, yesterday, tightened in an embrace. It was truly an immense pain. Sara was delighted with her life. She was an enthusiastic mom. And he also loved his job. He had collaborated with Confcommercio, following the family tradition. And he had been one of the smiling faces of the Zara store for many years. Maybe she didn’t even imagine she had entered the hearts of so many people, with that kind and always positive way of hers. Many, the attestations of closeness and affection for father Mario, the historical face of Confcommercio, prostrated by pain. It will live in the moving memory of an incredulous and dismayed community in the face of so much tragedy. Sara will live in her little Camilla, who will constantly feel her presence and strength in her heart. The young mother leaves her sister Romina and niece Alice in pain. Leave that smile of his, through which he will always be present. The funeral will be held tomorrow, at 3 pm, in the church of the Sant’Andrea hospital.
