My Story

Alexandra was only 5 1/2 when she was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in her right pelvis. What was thought to be a minor dance injury was a tumour the size of an apple growing in her right pelvic bone. Alexandra underwent 14 rounds of chemotherapy and an agonizing 8 hour surgery to remove half of her pelvis to attempt to remove the entire tumour. Luckily the entire tumour was totally removed and radiation was not needed, but that means Alex will always have a leg length difference and walk with a severe limp. She does not let that stop her whatsoever! She is back into dancing, swimming and playing T-ball!
