My Story

Alex is an energetic 5 year old boy. He is an only child. He loves to wrestle with his Daddy. He was diagnosed with leukemia in January of 2006, and is almost done with his treatment. He is due to end in March of 2009. It feels like we have been waiting for this year for our whole lives. Some of Alex's favorite things are pretty much anything to do with Star Wars and Transformers. He loves to play out in the snow in the winter time, and go swimming at our local gym. Alex has never let his cancer get him down. He has always had a good attitude about it, and we are confident that is why he has done so well so far.
