In March, St-Philippe posted on her Instagram handle that she’d had to put her skilled actions on hold some months before, in December 2021, to experience her first chemotherapy treatment in January.
She said she had first been diagnosed with cancer ten years back.
TVA said in its report that St-Philippe had, through social media, “wanted to maintain the secret bond she had with witnesses as she fought the hard battle, with strength.” It did not specify her age.
