Carley’s Angels Foundation was created in honour of Carley Elle Allison. She was a strong and courageous young woman who battled a very rare form of cancer. It was this strength that allowed Carley to live her life to the fullest, even as her cancer progressed. She was much more than the average teen; she was a beautiful singer, talented figure skater, and thoughtful friend. Although her battle was unimaginable, those who knew her know that she always found a reason to smile. Her smile was contagious.
Due to the rareness of Carley’s disease, traditional medicine alone was not enough. Instead, Carley’s family, with the help of Toronto’s outstanding medical community, committed themselves to searching for a combination of traditional and holistic treatments for Carley. The holistic treatments proved to be especially effective during Carley’s difficult journey. However, these treatments were not available in hospital and were very difficult to access.
Carley’s Angels continues to grow Carley’s legacy by working to unite traditional and holistic cancer care in hospitals, all while spreading Carley’s message of Always Smile.
