Here is a story — my own! I was born at the 25th week of pregnancy, in October, when I was due in January! I spent almost eight months at Sainte-Justine UHC. During my stay, I underwent surgery to close off my arterial canal, and I had slight intercranial bleeding. I summoned my courage and fought back. Now I’m a healthy adult and a student, and I have no lasting effects from my prematurity. Yes, I’m very happy to be alive and take advantage of every minute of life. Some time ago, I went to the neonatology unit to see the preemies in their incubators. I wanted to see what the reality was, my reality. Thank you, Préma-Québec, for having been there for my parents, but also for the children who need you so badly.
