”My love for music, writing and performing my own songs, has kept me on the track over the years, despite a chronic disease that I suffer from. As a teenager I got diabetes, and it felt as if my life had ended. I was very self destructive for many years, refused to accept my disease that felt like a prison. Then suddenly songs began to come to me, they became my light and my rescue, and made me feel a joy and meaning with my life, despite all the demanding blood checks and routines.” ~ Eva Hillered
