In 2007, my son Olivier Tremblay died on the eve of his fifteenth year with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since then, I have taken part in 4 expeditions with CRS Challenge in Olivier’s memory. I am convinced that cancer research can save many lives. For example, Dr. Sauvageau’s recent discovery of a molecule capable of multiplying umbilical cord blood stem cells that could be transplanted to young adults like Olivier will greatly increase patients’ chances of recovery. Moreover, through my involvement with the Cancer Research Society, I have met exceptional people who have helped me greatly with my grieving process. For me, the Cancer Research Society represents hope stemming from research and hope for survival.
