Les Trefles du Coeur is a small charity making a big impact supporting cancer patients.
We are a charity based just outside of Paris, France. 'Les Trefles' means 'Clover' and 'du Coeur' means 'of the heart' both iconic symbols of love and luck. Our overall mission is to provide support and comfort to cancer patients and introduce the 'Bravery Bell' to French hospitals.
The Bravery Bell
Our aim is to place Bravery Bells in cancer units in France and introduce the tradition of ringing the bell at the end of treatment. This is a custom in USA and helps patients celebrate their achievement of completing treatment whatever the stage of the disease.
Following two successful personal fundraising campaigns 'Les Trefles du Coeur' was officially founded by cancer survivor Katy Harris in January 2017. The charity presented the very first Bravery Bell in France to the Centre des Maladies des Seins, at the St Louis Hospital in Paris where Katy was treated. She was honoured to be the first patient to symbolically ring the bell during the inauguration ceremony in April 2017 in the presence of the medical and management staff.
