2021 Ambassador Alex was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at age 3 1/2 in October 2019. He has fought through countless hospital visits, needle pokes, anesthetized procedures ever since. The medication regimen is grueling including daily, weekly and monthly chemotherapy. It has taken a toll on his body and mind, but he has stayed strong and fought through it all. He is truly a warrior! Alex loves playing outside, swimming, Legos and making people laugh. He’s a Star Wars fan, a wiz at Minecraft, and a caring friend. This battle has been hard on him, but he wouldn’t be where he is today (and our whole family), without the team of doctors, nurses and support staff at Rady Children’s Hospital. Cancer affects the whole family and we are so grateful for all the support from Rady Children’s Hospital and our family and friends.
