This morning, at around 3:00 am, and after having battled a very rare and aggressive form of cancer so courageously for the last 12 months, Corinne Chapelle passed away, after experiencing a devastating stroke.
For the last two months, since the beginning of the crowdfunding campaign, Corinne had been receiving treatments and surgeries in a clinic and hospitals in Germany, while living with the greatest gratitude, deeply touched by the overwhelming amount of affection and love towards her.
She spent her last 10 days in the company of her dear friend, Irene, and received the most loving and caring medical assistance.
Her partner David, whom she met 10 years ago through their common love of chamber music, was able to hold her, talk to her, comfort her and kiss her for hours before she finally let go, peacefully and painlessly.
An enormous thank you goes to all those who participated and worked so hard for Corinne’s campaign, to the 1942 and other private donors that gave her a chance of healing and possibility to stay alive as long as she did, and to her beloved friends and dear family for the endless support.
She leaves behind her 6 year old daughter Leila, who will be taken care of by David, Leila’s father and Corinne’s partner for the last 10 years.
The crowdfunding page www.JustGiving.com/crowdfunding/help-corinne-chapelle will be active for donations until her final service. More news soon.
