The sickness made me an even more positive person than I was before!

You cannot achieve anything without effort. Giving the best you can is the key to reaching your goals.

The illness has made me a fighter, helped me in facing difficulties with more positive attitude, and I don't think I'm in a worst position than other young people who have not gone through it.

The illness should not be a barrier neither for studying nor for securing a future. It is not necessary to give advantages to survivors.

Any act of different behavior towards cancer survivors becomes a discrimination itself, since all we want is to be treated like any other person.

Although the experience was hard, and it leaves scars, it has given me the sense of achievement. And I am cured, I don’t feel ill!

Having had the illness during childhood doesn’t make me feel any different from other young people with regard to working and training opportunities.

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

"La vida es dura, así que sin esfuerzo es difícil que llegues a tu meta"

Don't be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try.
