In addition to wanting to return to playing on the field, Raphael also wants to become a professional and change his family's life: “At the moment I dream about tomorrow. Wake up, be well and be healthy. In the long term, I will become a professional player, be successful and help my family not go through difficulties anymore”, he continues.

FEAR OF NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY ANYMORE

The young archer also He revealed the fear he felt when he found out he had cancer and said he feared he would no longer be able to play. The young man was performing at a high level at the time. However, his gradual return began in April and he reveals that it took a lot of struggle.


“To be quite honest, at that time, it didn't sink in. I was caught off guard. It was at a time when I was training, and a week later I found out. I didn't react, and after a while I calmed down. But I had a lot of faith that it would pass. It was a moment of sadness, but at the same time, knowing that it was going to work out”, he remembers.

“Thank God, I came back. I fought a lot. I had a week of rehabilitation to get back into rhythm and, after a month, I was following the boys in training”, he adds.
