“No one fights alone.”

It is with these 4 words that our story begins.

In 2012, while Elliot was in treatment, I met and became good friends the mother of a little girl called Zoé, who was being treated for cancer at the same hospital as Elliot.

Our kids finished their treatments roughly at the same time, and the future looked hopeful.

But in the spring of 2013, Zoé relapsed. A new battle was about to begin.

Friends and family of the Guignards got together to support them. ZOE4LIFE was created to help them through this battle. An incredible wave of solidarity was generated around Zoé and her family.

Zoé passed away peacefully in her mother’s arms on October 26, 2013 two days before her 5th birthday.

Her smile, her laugh and her desire to find joy in all that life has to offer was a gift and a lesson for all of us. She will forever be our motivation and our guide.

ZOE4LIFE continues its mission to help other families of children with cancer. Zoé’s battle has become symbolic of the battle against powerlessness, despair and injustice.

Together we can make a difference.

  2. Adorable petite Zoé! Je viens de lire ton histoire et ça m’attriste beaucoup. Quel courage! Ma petite contribution ne va pas changer grand chose… c’est juste histoire de vous témoigner mon soutien. J’aimerais tellement qu’un miracle se produise pour toi et ta famille. Que Dieu te bénisse.
