Alli McLaren has been dubbed “the unluckiest woman alive”. And for good reason, the Australian actress was punched in the face by a homeless man, diagnosed with a brain tumor and then hit by a car on her way to her radiotherapy session. His attack dates back to October 2021. “He crossed the street and I saw him out of the corner of my eye. Then he ran towards me and hit me. He punched my phone, which s broke on impact, and I fell to the ground,” she told the New York Post. The 30-year-old was left with a broken jaw. “I had to have surgery to fix it but my immune system was very weak. I caught an infection and pneumonia.”

At worst, Alli fell on her head. A fall that caused him a traumatic brain injury. At the time, the 30-year-old chained epileptic seizures. After consultation in June 2022, doctors detected a giant cell tumor in his brain. They removed most of the mass but prescribed radiation therapy. In January 2023, the young woman was going to the hospital to receive her treatment when a car, which had just blown a stop sign, overturned her. Result ? Two broken feet and a long recovery. Misadventures that have been difficult to live. The Australian lost her job and friends. Despite everything, she strives to remain optimistic for the future.
She continues to fight her tumor
When told that being homeless somehow saved his life, Alli retorts: “I don’t agree. The only thing he brought me was stress and pain. medical expenses. The origin of this type of tumor is unknown but I have been given a possible explanation. It may have been the result of head trauma so he may have caused it.” The actress is now determined to keep her spirits up, reminding herself that things will eventually work out: “One day I’m going to wake up and I won’t have any more pain.” The 30-year-old hopes to write a book about her story. In the meantime, she continues to use her platform to talk about her “chaotic life”, assuring that all these hardships have made her stronger.
