Paul is emotional through Myrthe’s last wish in Not To Get Small

In the new show “Not to Get Small,” presenter Paul de Leeuw (61) follows five children diagnosed with cancer. In the new episode, viewers witness a heated conversation between Merth and Paul. Mer is told she will not get better and asks Paul for one last favor.

“I find it complicated if someone sings to me for too long, so let alone I want this with me”

Myrthe receives bad news shortly after the previous episode: a scan shows her leukemia has returned and it is a pity that she can no longer be improved upon. Paul visits the hospital, but has received an important instruction from Myrthe beforehand: the conversation should be as positive as possible.

Myrthe explains that she went to the hospital for a check-up the day after the last episode. “We already knew that the immune system wasn’t growing very well, but we thought it was because of the treatment. Because I’m taking quite a bit of medication that can have side effects. Then we’re told they found a bunch of abnormal cells and it turns out that this is old leukemia” .

The first discussions about the funeral had already been held. “Myrrh wants lots of color and flowers,” explains her mother. Seeing that the conversation is tiring for Mere, Paul decides to end it. “I guess I’ll see you again after that, won’t I? Do you have anything else you’d like to tell me?” Myrthe then says she wants her father to ask Paul for her. He replies, “She would like you to sing a song at her funeral.”

Paul is clearly moved by the request and doesn’t have to think twice about it. “Yes, of course I do! Do you want to hear a special song?” Myrthe says she would like Paul Adele to sing. “Do you want me to sing it to you first?” he asks her. “No, I find it complicated when someone sings to me so long, so never mind that I want this with me.”
