Cancer is no fun but it makes you a stronger person in the end

Samuel, undergoing treatment

Hi, my name Samuel. I’m 14 years old and I have testicular embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma

The cancer diagnosis was a big shock to us. I had to stop going to school, which means I don't get to see my friends very often. What bothered me the most was having to stop doing gymnastics. I was training about 16 hours every week and I was competing in provincial competitions before I got sick. I miss it a lot. I was accustomed to being very strong and fit and now I feel much weaker. My parents are really great and my brother Kai is sharp and has a big heart. The support I get from my family is very important. We like to go skiing, hiking and camping together. In spite of everything, I think that what I've lived through has made me stronger. Good thing I'm competitive by nature, because I intend to win this competition with cancer!

I received support from everyone at the CHEO!

For Samuel, the 24h is... an extraordinary event; He's excited about going to Tremblant!
