My Story

Alexa was diagnosed with a brain tumor called a supratentorial Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor in 2011. Through countless MRI's, 4 brain surgeries, 2 clinical trials, chemotherapy and radiation, she kept a beautiful smile on her face and a happy disposition. Her cancer came back three times now, but she never gave up! Team Alexa is joining forces with St. Baldrick's to raise much needed funds for life saving research. Alexa is our inspiration for doing this, and I hope she will become yours as well!
