The origin of Myschoolpulse lies in unspeakable adversity when, three months into his school year (5è in the French school system or 7th grade in the American school system), the founder’s son, Paul (12), was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) which is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer. Treatment started immediately, on Christmas Eve 2008.

Despite the side-effects caused by high dose chemotherapy, Paul nevertheless insisted on carrying on with school. That meant getting his professors to give him private lessons at home or at the hospital. In June 2009, Paul received a stellar grade report. Sadly however, his cancer was already out of control, and he passed away in the summer.

Paul’s mother now wants to help sick children maintain some academic normalcy by supporting them with the cost of private tutorships so they can keep up with school, and not be left behind.
