In 2009, at the age of 36, Véronique Lettre was diagnosed with brain cancer and underwent year-long treatment. It was during her recovery that she wrote her first bestseller, “ Plus fou que ça, tumeur !” published in 2010 by Stanké. Her second book, “ Plus fou que ça, tumeur, les Aventures de Jack et Joe” was published in 2015 by Libre Expression, following the return of her cancer in the form of breast cancer.
In 2016, equipped with her personal experience with medical marijuana and her diploma from THC University, she opened Nature Médic, the first medical cannabis clinic in the region. Véronique currently enjoys speaking at conferences on the topic of medical marijuana, training health professionals and leading cannabis cooking classes. Her third book will be published this fall by Quebecor.
