Hi, my name is Coralie, I'm 8 years old and I'm in remission from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
"When I was 6, I spent many weeks in hospital because the doctors told my parents I had cancer; acute lymphoblastic leukemia." - Coralie
In November 2021, Coralie was given the diagnosis that no family wants. What followed was a series of treatments during which Coralie received several transfusions. Her school was the hospital and she had to stop gymnastics. When she returned to school almost a year later, Coralie had to be hospitalized twice because of a virus.
"I've often felt tired, but when I need energy, it's Mom's lasagna that gives me strength! When I'm cured, I'm definitely going to play field hockey, and what I'd also like is to have superpowers to save people."
Coralie is in remission, but the second phase of treatment has been more difficult in terms of side effects. She developed hyperglycemia following chemotherapy treatment and had to be hospitalized again. Coralie is now in what we call the "maintenance" phase. If the treatment plan goes according to plan, this determined, bright and curious little girl will have her last chemotherapy treatment on the Monday following the 24h Tremblant.
