    Mon dieu. Toujours aussi jeune, il faillait qu’elle choppe un cancer. :'(
    Je ne la connais pas et rien qu’en la voyant continuer ses activités malgré sa maladie, je ne trouve même pas le mots pour dire combien je l’admire.
    Je lui apporte tout mon soutien et lui souhaite une bonne guérison. :’)
