In 2010, Dr Nikolaos Metaxotos founded I LIVE FOR ME, a Non-Profit Organisation that aims to help and support individuals suffering from cancer and chronic diseases cope with what is appreciated to be an important aspect of their life: their appearance and the way it changes because of the treatments they undergo. To help individuals deal with their new appearance, take care of themselves during all stages of the disease and, eventually, deal with this aspect of the disease in a more informed, confident, self-esteemed manner, I LIVE FOR ME, under the personal guidance of Dr Metaxotos, brings together MDs, psychologists and experts from the beauty industry who offer day-to-day practical advice and tips for patients or people who take care of patients. Also, I LIVE FOR ME works to raise awareness on cancer prevention and early detection via different mediums and it has also published several articles including a very informative digital application concerning the matter.
At the same time, in the context of our efforts to protect the environment and in respect to our corporate social responsibility, SYMMETRIA has developed a "paperless" environmental policy, with the aim of reducing paper use and thus reducing its environmental footprint. In an effort to contribute to the sustainability of the planet, SYMMETRIA Athens, as well as all its partners globally, invite visitors to choose the electronic services offered, thereby limiting the use of paper as much as possible.
