The announcement of Maxence’s departure moved far beyond Cléguer, his town …
Yes, we have received and continue to receive a lot of testimonies of support, sympathy, requests to send flowers, donations… It touches me for Maxence, because he will not have left “incognito” – I cannot find not necessarily the exact word – but with all these people still thinking about him and hearing his message.
Many people wish to make a gesture, what do you say to them?
First of all, I say thank you, once again, this touches us enormously. Indeed, people ask us where to have flowers delivered… It’s adorable, but I prefer to answer them, as well as to all those who wish to do something: rather than putting money in flowers which will wither , we prefer that he go to the Gustave Roussy Institute and even more precisely to the service of Doctor Nathalie Gaspar. She is a pediatric oncologist, she has looked into Maxence’s case, and she is fighting for research on pediatric cancer to advance in France.
Your fight, now, is research on pediatric cancers.
I promised Maxence to continue to “make a mess” on the subject after his departure! He asked me. He said to me: “There is me, but I am not alone, it is necessary to continue for the others, never again another child, mom”. But do you realize? There is hardly any research on osteosarcoma, which Maxence suffered from, because it is too rare and therefore too expensive. Even the treatments that children receive, such as chemo, are not specific treatments for children, but treatments for adults, just in reduced amounts. This is not appropriate, and it does real collateral damage. So yes, we do not let go, and this is certainly what will allow us to hold on, after …
The tribute that will be paid to Maxence on Monday in Kerlétu, do you want it to be public?
Yes. Of course, visits are reserved for our inner circle. But we give an appointment to those who wish, this Monday at 1:15 p.m., at the Kerlétu funeral center. Things are getting organized, there will be cosplayers, I know that some Hennebont firefighters, who followed Maxence, were very touched and will do something … Our little guy had an incredible strength of character, he spoke of his illness, and even of his departure, with an astonishing maturity. If he happened to see me cry, he would scold me! With him, we have always been in life. This is all that we want to share.
