“To share our story is to keep hope.<\/span><\/strong>“<\/strong> 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.<\/span><\/span><\/p>\n

Adolescence is a crucial period in the life of a young person;<\/span> time when we feel the need to be accepted in order to blossom.<\/span> It becomes difficult to do when one is labeled by the disease and chemotherapy restricts us in our activities.<\/span><\/span>F\u00e9lix-Antoine<\/span><\/div>\n<\/div>\n<\/div>\n<\/div>\n

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.<\/span><\/strong> 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.<\/span> It’s easy to feel alone.<\/span><\/span><\/p>\n

Fortunately, simple gestures from those around us can make life easier.<\/span> For example, I had the chance to continue my football season even during my treatments.<\/span> 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.<\/span><\/span><\/p>\n

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<\/span> the disease.<\/span><\/span><\/p>\n

J\u2019esp\u00e8re marquer ses jeunes autant que certaines figures autour de moi ont pu le faire, que ce soit par un grand ou un petit geste.<\/p>\n

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.<\/span><\/span><\/p>\n<\/div>\n<\/div><\/div>\n<\/p>\n

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.<\/span><\/span> – F\u00e9lix-Antoine<\/h3>\n
