Samyra Duchesne

Actions et motivations

Samyra is a spirited 15-year-old girl with many passions. She loves figure skating, painting on canvas and scrapbooking - in short, anything to do with the arts. In 2019, she was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a form of bone cancer.


"You could say I won the cancer lottery, because Ewing's sarcoma is a rare tumor that affects only three in a million people a year. I took it very hard at first, but I knew there was no point in dwelling on the downside. I knew in my heart that I had to stay positive."


And that's what she did! Although she was forced to put her athletic training on hold during surgery and chemotherapy treatments, Samyra continued to practice her art to take her mind off things. She has also been able to count on her family to keep her laughing and to support her through good times and bad.


If you feel like you've seen her somewhere before, it's because Samyra was the face of the 25th CIBC Charles-Bruneau Tour poster campaign. She also participated in several activities during the event to raise awareness about the importance of supporting pediatric hematology-oncology research.

Samyra is the hero of the routes...
