Hi, my name is Florence. I'm 19 years old and in remission from papillary carcinoma of the thyroid gland
The disease has definitely had an impact on my everyday life. Cancer is scary! Because of my many surgeries, I had to stop doing gymnastics, which I adored. My childhood was turned upside down and I was pushed into adulthood way too soon. But there is a bright side: I live life to the fullest! I am energetic and have a lot of fun – as anyone can see on my social accounts! For me, anytime is a good time to spend with family members.
My biggest dream is still that all children have the same opportunities to be cured. I attend CEGEP in Sherbrooke and would like to work in communications. To speak out and inspire others? That's what I want to do!
Thanks to Fondation Charles-Bruneau, we're not alone in this!
