Fundraiser for Alex Dion

The young man in this picture is my nephew, Alex Dion.  We are raising funds to pay for Alex's funeral, related medical expenses as well as any final expenses.  In May of 2011 at the age of 14 Alex was diagnosed with an aneurysmal bone cyst.  Alex now age 17, has been so strong and has been fighting and is still fighting.  I am now going to quote my nephew because he said it the best in a facebook post on Monday.  "The doctors told me I had 2 weeks to a month and it's week 3 and I am still fighting and will to the end.  It's been almost 3 years, 20 surgeries and givin the news I am not gonna make it.  So I c alot of these just stupid statuses complaining about this and everything, well do something.  It's ur life, no one can change it but u and instead of trying to change it they just sit there.  Like come on I was told I won't make it and I am fighting everyday cuz everyday I am here, It's a miracle."  (Quote from Alex on Monday, March 17, 2014).  So with that said I sincerely appreciate any and all support for Alex and his family.  Thank you so much <3

P.S. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Please DO NOT contact my sister Laurie, Alex or Felicia.  As I am sure you can understand.  <3
