Samyra Duchesne

Profile and story

Samyra is a spirited 17-year-old with a passion for figure skating, canvas painting and scrapbooking. 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! Now in remission, Samyra was able to get back on the ice and get back to her favourite sport.
