Fenov Pierre-Louis, was born on March 1st 2001. He left behind his mom Mathilda Pierre-Louis and his older sister Sciaska Ulysses who is currently a sophomore at University of Pennsylvania.
The overwhelming majority of Fenov’s life was spent as a resident of Roselle, New Jersey. He lived only 4 blocks away from his closest set of extended
Family his aunt Yolenne Dorcent, uncle Andre Francois Dorcent, and his first cousins who were virtually siblings Francelene Ensenat, Randolph Dorcent, and Adrienne Dorcent. Instead of a core family of three, Fenov really was a member of a close family of eight. Additionally, he left behind a few close aunts, Chrisla, Kekete, and Rachelle and their sets of families.
Fenov was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma at the age of 8. Fenov fought the disease for 9 years. There were several successful victories in the fight against cancer whereby the cancer was in remission; but there were also many relapses. With the support of his mother and close family members, there were many trips to the ‘battle sites’ in Newark Beth Israel Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
His different battles with cancer involved rounds of chemotherapy and
radiation. There were months spent in the hospital; months spent away from school and the activities of a growing young man. Nonetheless, he always maintained a positive outlook on life and his future. He was able to excel in school and was even inducted into the National Honor Society.
Fenov was a ‘Jambassador’ (Jam Ambassador) for the Jam Kancer In The Kan Foundation Fund. Through his involvement, he struck a special
friendship with Jamey Crimmins, leader of the foundation who since became a great friend of the family. In addition, Anders Lee, athletic ambassador for the foundation and New York Islanders hockey star, was an active supporter and a great friend of Fenov. Fenov, Jamey, and Anders led many of the Jam Kancer events.
Whether it was during Jam Kancer events, Junior High School Graduation or Relay for Life events; Fenov developed his oratory skills and spoke publicly and confidently. As we all know, Fenov has touched and inspired many. Not surprisingly, videos of him speaking publicly have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
Throughout his lifetime and battle with cancer, Fenov was able to lean on God, his close family, and the many prayer warriors and friends. One of Fenov’s special memories was the day spent at the White House and meeting with President Barack Obama, which was set up by the “Make a Wish
Foundation.” Just this past May, Fenov and his family went to Italy, as prepared by the Jam Kancer Foundation.
Fenov is no longer in pain, he is at peace. As of July 18, 2018. We now have another angel.
