About Us

Keri Davis trained as a nurse in New Zealand and went on to lead public health education campaigns around issues including diabetes and eldercare. She has nursed young women through cervical cancer - which is horrible and degrading, and lost a friend to the disease when she was only 39 years old. This friend was initially described by health care providers as "just a complaining woman" and by the time her cancer was diagnosed it was beyond treatment; she died three weeks later.

Bruno was raised in a Catholic church that praised "scientific study and fidelity toward truth in scientific inquiries, the necessity of working together with others in technical groups, a sense of international solidarity, a clearer awareness of the responsibility of experts to aid and even to protect men, the desire to make the conditions of life more favourable for all" (Gaudium et Spes, promulgated by His Holiness Pope Paul VI, 1965)
