As Chapelle's tumor is inoperable, her oncologist has advised her to seek targeted treatments available in Germany and Switzerland. The projected cost for three rounds of treatments is £300,000.
"This sum is impossible for me to meet on my own, and I am asking for your help to reach my goal," Chapelle writes. "I am acutely aware that this is a very difficult time for us all, and I welcome your healing thoughts, prayers, donations, or just spreading the word to people you know who have the means and wish to help."
"I have a six-year-old daughter, Leila, whom I desperately want to watch grow up, blossom, and reach her dreams. I know in my heart of hearts this is a blessing to learn the lessons I need to learn, and I am determined to make deep changes within myself to ultimately bloom and thrive as a result of this journey of Life!"
