About me

Hey Everyone,

My name is Carley Elle Allison, i’m 19 years old. February 4th 2013, i was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor outside my trachea, and i went into remission for 9 months. August 25th 2014 I was diagnosed with Clear Cell Sarcoma in my lungs.

I have undergone six rounds of chemo therapy, tracheal surgery, and i have completed 32 days of high intensity radiation to cure the cancer in my trachea. I am currently going through oral chemotherapy to target the cancer in my lungs.

when i was first diagnosed I was a grade 12 student with quite the busy schedule. along with school i figured skated competitively. I have been skating since i was six years old, and ever since then i have been attached to the ice training six days a week year round. My schedule during the school year is pretty crazy, and most days it sounds a bit like this; wake up, skate, school, skate during spare, back to school, skate, homework, music lesson, bed, and start all over again. So iv’e gotten pretty used to being active almost 24/7.

Another big part of my life is music. music has been my passion ever since i was young. I started taking guitar lessons when i was 11 years old, and i’ve been singing for as long as i can remember. when I was 15 i started teaching myself how to play the piano and that really opened more opportunities for me musically.

In the summer time, i get weekends off training, so my family and i go up north to our cottage in Halliburton ON. i think its safe to say, this is my favourite place in the entire world. when i was younger i was always the “tom boy” between me and my two sisters, and i was probably more adventurous then i should have been. At 8, i was already climbing to the top of the cliffs with my 10 year old cousin Jeff to go cliff jumping, while all the other girls were jumping off the little rocks. I always liked to prove i was just as good as my boy cousins, even if i was a bit scared i pretended i was perfectly confident and jumped.

And that is how i plan to deal with this little set back in my life. Cancer does scare me, but i’m going to be brave, pretend that i’m perfectly confident, and jump.

    • I was there too and thought she did a wonderful job, absolutely wonderful. I just wish they had given the crowd more of an opportunity to express their appreciation and admiration because she was getting a good ovation and I could tell from the crowd that they were building up to an even bigger one. This wonderful young woman deserved the chance to experience that bigger ovation.

  1. Carley, amazing job last night & thanks for joining us for the 3rd period to watch the Leafs win. I sent one of those backup smartphone chargers over to Larry’s office this morning to give to your Dad for you which you should have soon. All the best, Bruce
