My Story

In 2008, Alexa Renee, our vibrant 4 and a half year old daughter was diagnosed with Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney, an extremely rare Cancer affecting only 20 people a year in the US. My husband & I wondered how we could face each day. Alexa quickly showed us how as she led us in this fight for her life. Now a seventh grader in good health, she is one of  the strongest girls I know. Each day, she amazes me more & more. I have learned so much from her & to say I am proud to be her mom is an understatement. We nicknamed her our "Beautiful Soul" the day she was born & she has lived up to this name & then some. If you are interested in learning more about Alexa's battle, you can view her story on CaringBridge. Thank you for your prayers & for your support of all of these extremely special warriors who fight the fight each & every day! God bless! www.caringbridge.org/visit/alexareneemoore Alexa has proclaimed to all that would listen- "CANCER, YOU'RE FIRED!" Please help her "FIRE" Cancer world wide! Thank you.
