Tonight we have a very special episode about those children
facing sickness and health issues and fighting through them. They
are heroes and tonight we are celebrating them.
So first, Ari Skye, our new host, starts this episode by telling you about her personal story fighting through sickness. Then, we’ll hear our friend Gabriel Veiga translate the interview of Docteur Sophie Mottard, Orthopedic surgeon oncologist at CHU Sainte-Justine and Sanaa Bendahmane. And we’ll finish off with fabulous stories narrated by David Marino and Teresa Picciano.
Good night !
