After Cancer, It’s Still You, But With So Much More!

This challenge has fueled my desire to face new challenges. A way to regain control over my body. During treatments, the body is completely passive. I underwent the treatments without a fuss, accepting every stage without flinching. Once the treatments were over, I thought to myself: "Okay, the body has gone far into the negative (on the wellness spectrum), so now I'll push it to the other end: let"s go far together into the positive."

I then embarked on various athletic challenges, even though I was never into sports before.

I started running, practicing yoga, hiking, and even went paragliding. My next adventure: cycling through the Loire Valley.

I participated in running races and, most importantly, I enjoyed them: the 20km of Brussels, the 20km of Paris, the festive half-marathon in Givry, and soon, the Amsterdam half-marathon.

I also went paragliding on the slopes of the Swiss mountains in Evolène. It's worth mentioning that I have a paralyzing fear of heights. However, when I jumped, I felt completely calm. It was as if I wasn't afraid of anything anymore. All my fears faded that day. I realized that the real fear, the deep one, I had experienced it in the hospital.

Everything else now is pure joy.

My Epiphany?

Crossing the finish line of the 20km of Brussels for the first time. A mix of excitement, nostalgia, and pride. It was a whirlwind of emotions, but crossing that symbolic line enabled me to begin my new life, the post-cancer life.

It marked the beginning of something new.
