An amazing PROCURE ambassador known for his dedication, support, and outstanding contribution to the cause.
“At the start, my involvement was to support all those affected by this disease in their rehabilitation efforts, while helping to support PROCURE in its mission, a cause that was close to my heart, having known men affected by the disease. Prostate cancer. It’s true that “cancer” is a scary word. We often hear it and we know that prostate cancer affects one in seven Quebeckers. But I would never have thought that I would be affected. I must admit that at 49 years old and being pretty fit, I had a hard time getting across the island of Montreal after hearing the famous word cancer. But it was by undergoing this ordeal that I understood how important support is. My teammates from the Les Évadés|L’Empreinte team, participants in the Tour du Courage PROCURE since 2013, and Laurent Proulx from PROCURE, were there for me when I needed them most. And they still are. I understand today the courage and determination of survivors and their loved ones, in the face of this disease. I know that my involvement in the cause is making a real difference in the lives of those affected by this cancer. And knowing that I can bring a ray of hope to my peers touches me deeply. It is for this reason that I will continue to be involved for the cause, which is now my own.”
