I've known Anne for 16 years now and we got married in 2012. She is the mother of our 2 wonderful kids which you can see on the photo.
Anne was diagnosed with breast cancer in early 2016. She went thru chemotherapy for the last 6 months and had surgery on October 13th. Two weeks ago her oncologist had bad news. He said a second surgery was needed because tests revealed malignant cells in her lymph. He also said that chemotherapy had a small success rate and to expect radiotherapy and hormonotherapy later on. Physical, psychological, and monetary damages are significant already. And we may have seen only the beginning of it.
Anne has a Ph.D in Genetics from Laval University and a post-doctoral fellow in Clinical Biochemistry from Montreal University. We thus had high hopes for her career. However, she didn't find a position since her graduation in 2014 mostly because of pregnancy and cancer treatments. This situation places great pressure on the family budget. This is why I am starting this fund raiser.
