Jocelyn Boudrault, working at the DPJ and later a public relations officer at youth centres, is living out her last moments.
A month ago, she learned that she was suffering from a serious illness. “It’s lung cancer with brain metastases,” he noted in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.
A few weeks ago his health began to deteriorate. She asked for sick leave because she was very tired and had a heart attack. The diagnosis came later.
“I always had the feeling that I wouldn’t live to be old. It’s weird, isn’t it?” she said.
Thanks to him, TVA Nouvelles was able to broadcast numerous reports to young children in need, mainly in youth centers during the holidays. She managed to get her superiors to open the doors for journalists.
Even though life seems to be hunting her down, Ms. Boudrault will get married on September 24 before her departure. She is ready for this moment.
“I’m not going to stretch the sauce. I don’t want to put my family through this. […] I had a really good life. I had two wonderful children. I had a great career. I have a wonderful circle of friends”, he adds.

Ms. Boudreault has spent most of her career working behind the scenes, but her colleagues are unanimous: she has done a lot for children and teenagers who are less talked about than others.
“For 20 years, reason stuck to his body. She gave everything,” describes Jean-Nicolas Aube, one of Jocelyn’s former colleagues.
Throughout her career, she has made children her priority, and she will continue to do so.
“All I ask is: Help the responders by supporting the foundation. Help them help our most vulnerable children and youth.
