WINNIPEG — A young Jets fan that charmed Canadians last year has finished her cancer treatments.
Alyx Delaloye, the seven-year-old battling Leukemia who won over Jets fans with her Jumbotron appearances in February of 2015, is out of hospital and feeling a lot better.
Her mother announced the news in a Facebook post written this week.
“She is doing well so far but please keep praying for her!” Jody Delaloye said online.
She said that some Winnipeg players even came to Alyx’s last in-hospital treatment on their day off to celebrate.
