Stories of children and their loved ones

“To share our story is to keep hope. I have often heard my mother say that sentence when I was in treatment, and it was only many years later that I understood the whole meaning.


Adolescence is a crucial period in the life of a young person; time when we feel the need to be accepted in order to blossom. It becomes difficult to do when one is labeled by the disease and chemotherapy restricts us in our activities.Félix-Antoine

Today, I’m 28 years old and I have gone through two cancers. I have become aware of the importance of physical and moral support. When we land in a world of hospitals, medical exams and chemotherapy, everything is going at a crazy speed and it is difficult to understand the extent of the situation. It’s easy to feel alone.

Fortunately, simple gestures from those around us can make life easier. For example, I had the chance to continue my football season even during my treatments. No need to tell you that I was not in the front line, but at that time, being considered a full member of the team meant a lot to me.

Still today I get involved with young people with cancer, because I know how difficult their situation can be and how a support network can, for a moment, allow them to dissociate themselves from the disease.

J’espère marquer ses jeunes autant que certaines figures autour de moi ont pu le faire, que ce soit par un grand ou un petit geste.

I hope to make as big of an impact as some people had on me, on these young people. Whether it be by a big or a small gesture.

Know that through these foundations such as the Charles-Bruneau Foundation, you can contribute to improving the well-being of all these young people with cancer and help share their stories. – Félix-Antoine
