Renato graduated in Social Communications at PUC, Sao Paulo, and worked for over 10 years with direct marketing, graphic design, events and entertainment. After a long health battle, Renato was pretty much brought back to normal life in 2010 by a multivisceral (pancreas, liver, duodenum, intestine and stomach) transplant with Dr Rodrigo Vianna, in the United States. He’s been working with non-profit organizations since 2011 with communications and fundraising, while also working on the establishment of Instituto Visceral, which will aim to inform people going through what he’s gone through.
