Alexandra Marisa Hudson was born on December 20, 1995 and passed away March 24, 2018. She was diagnosed with Lyme and Mast Cell in the Spring of 2017 and staged a heroic fight to beat this illness.
Alex was born and raised in Fresno CA. She graduated from Clovis North High School in 2014 and was excited to accept a full ride scholarship to UCLA. Unfortunately her health issues deterred her from this opportunity and she worked on her college degree with an online program through ASU.
Alex was an avid lover of sports and could not find a sport that she didn’t excel at. She played club soccer and softball and also found time to cheer and dance.
Alex had a servant’s heart and the homeless became her passion. Most Sunday nights she would be found driving the streets of Fresno passing out dinner meals to them. She touched many lives through school, sports, church and the community. She will be remembered most for her giving spirit, true kindness and willingness to include others.
Alex’s final goal in life was to be an advocate for fellow Lyme and MCAS Warriors. The strong, healthy, athletic young woman experienced first-hand the lack of competent care and treatment for this disease. She also experienced the misdiagnosis of her disease when she was younger and the complications it caused later in life. She fought in typical Alex fashion- all the way to the end, with no pain medication. The Alex Hudson Lyme Foundation has been established in her memory. This foundation will raise money to help individuals receive proper testing who might not otherwise have the resources available to them. The foundation will also work to fundraise for research aimed at MCAS.
The foundation received its charity status approval on June 15, 2018. All donations are tax deductible under the 501c3 status. For further information or to lend support, please reach out to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org
