Testimony of Joël
While he discovered in 1996 the delight of paternity, Joel feels the first pain in the lung and a heart murmur. Doctors diagnose a symptomatic pleurisy of the extension of malignant lymphoma, a cancerous tumor initially affecting the lymph nodes and the spleen.
6 months of a heavy chemotherapeutic treatment supplemented by a blood stem cell transplant, surrounded by the medical team close to the IRHT, of which Joel emphasizes attentive listening, will overcome this serious illness.
Since 1999, Joel is no longer under medical supervision and leads a rich and lively professional life, surrounded by his family.
