It is with great sadness that we have learned at the end of the week the death of Lisa-Marie Gamache. The teenager from Saint-Antonin, who had received a heart transplant at Christmas last year, died as the result of a hemorrhage Saturday morning. His mother, Guylaine Dumas, a testament to the pain that affects the family.
“I was terribly wrong. I would like her to be with me. I would like to celebrate his one year, and not do his service,” said Ms. Dumas.
On the 25th of December 2016, Lisa-Marie received his new heart. The year that followed the grafting of Lisa-Marie has been painful. She spent long months in the hospital. “Despite all that she wanted to live, and she had plans,” his mother recounted. She never complained.”
The determination of Lisa-Marie is remarkable. As a child, she has survived leukemia before being struck by heart problems, who have followed him throughout adolescence. His death has triggered a tsunami of marks of sympathy for the family. “I appreciate it. But I would have wanted people to say, wow it’s been a year and we’re happy, rather than my sympathies. I like it, it’s good for you, but this is not what I wanted to hear.”
The mother of Lisa-Marie hopes that she will give strength to his family, especially his brothers, to go through this ordeal: “Without wanting to do wrong, I have not been able to take care of them as I would have liked. I hope they know I love them. I want them to enjoy life and they live to Lisa-Marie too.”
Lisa-Marie was known for her fighting spirit. A quiet strength that has left its trace: “Lisa-Marie was wonderful, she brought us a lot of happiness. I will never forget it.”
