Alyssa Sucier

Alyssa, daughter of David & Nikki Saucier of Caribou recently underwent surgery to have a malignant tumor removed from her brain. Unfortunately, surgeons were only able to do a partial removal as the mass infringed on her brain stem. Following two weeks of post op rehab, and weekly appointments with occupational and physical therapists, Alyssa strives to overcome double vision, tremors and balance all which affect her daily life.

Drawing, playing soccer and driving once effortless are now very difficult and while discouraged and scared at times Alyssa remains optimistic that with each new day comes new hope of change.

Alyssa enjoys time with her boyfriend, parents, siblings, family friends, and family on her mother’s side and although she continues her education from home looks forward to graduating from CHS this year.

If you happen to see Alyssa grabbing a cop of coffee or socializing on line be sure to greet this remarkable young lady and applaud her for her bravery in the face of adversity.
