My Story

Alex is an outgoing 11 y.o. boy who was diagnosed July 31, 2007 with ALL. He has finished over 3 years of chemo and is doing well. Alex is in sixth grade this year at Sacred Heart Model school and loves being around his friends. Alex loves to play sports especially with his little brothers Miller and TC. He is currently playing basketball and swimming. Meatballs and spaghetti are still his favorite meal. We love our cousin Cheryn who was a "shavee" in his honor. We also want to thank Aunt Bobbi and Schuyler for their scalps last year.  And a great big thank you to Ms. Christine for shaving again this year!
