Kiss and Cry movie close to Bayview Glens heart

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Carley Allison '13 was a remarkable young person who touched countless lives with her talent, compassion and positive attitude. As a student at Bayview Glen, she was often spotted helping others in the hallway, playing the piano in the theatre or pitching in to organize an event for the community. In her final year at the school, she was diagnosed with a rare 1 in 3.5 billion form of sarcoma. Through her illness, Carley thought of others and constantly reassured those around her.

She went on to inspire thousands more after she posted YouTube video of herself singing One Direction’s “More Than This,” while breathing through a tube from an emergency tracheotomy.

Amidst three rounds of chemotherapy, she continued to sing, play piano and skate competitively.

Carley passed away in the spring of 2015 at the age of 19. 

A movie about her life called Kiss and Cry, staring her real life best friend and BVG alum Sarah Fisher,  was partly filmed at Bayview Glen.
