There's always worse!

Sarah-Lou, in remission

My name is Sarah-Lou, I'm 13 years old and I'm being treated for Phi-Like acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

On May 8, 2021, I was diagnosed with high-risk B-acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Within the hour, I was admitted to intensive care. Our world fell apart. A week later, I was transferred to the hemato-oncology unit, where I stayed for a month.

For a whole year, my life and that of my family was punctuated by hospital visits, at best once a week, sometimes several times a week. There were even times when I thought I'd never get out of hospital.

I wasn't able to attend school for the whole of Grade 6, but fortunately I was able to finish and take part in my primary school prom with my friends. Right now, I'm in Secondary 2 at a drama school. My dream is to be an actress!

Last September, we began the home stretch with the end of my treatments. I say "we" because we're going through all this as a family, my mother, my father and my big sister Zoé. My mother would tell you that I'm a real warrior and that I'm incredibly resilient. I'd tell you to keep smiling!
 

Thank you to the exceptional staff at Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau!

 

For my family, the 24h means... tons of emotion, support and sharing. And a demonstration of the best of human nature.

Thank you for being an important part of this vast wave of solidarity!
