"I'LL BE SO HAPPY WHEN I'M CURED!"
Malik, undergoing treatment

MY NAME IS MALIK, I'M 5 YEARS OLD AND HAVE ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA (TYPE B)

Since being diagnosed with leukemia last February 22, I have spent a lot of time in hospital; my treatment will be finished in 2024. It was a shock to my family. Some days we feel strong, other days are harder. As mom says, we have to learn to control our emotions and accept living with the disease. My family does everything for me. They taught me how to skate when I was two years old and I went down a ski slope for the first time when I was three! I really like playing with my big brother Éloïc. My dream come true would be to visit a dinosaur park someday! I really like dinosaurs and superheroes – especially Hulk, because he's green... like dinosaurs!

We are fortunate to have a Charles-Bruneau unit close to home!
