Alex's Fight Against Glioblastoma

This is Alex Antonio Perez. Alex has been a great friend to many people over the years, as well as an adored Husband and Son. Born and raised in the Coachella Valley, Alex fell in love with music at an early age, eventually applying his talents to impress crowds across southern California as the singer/guitarist for the Desert’s own Dead End Paradox and Hollace. He met his wife Jennifer when they were 16 years old and have been together ever since. They would be the first to tell you it hasn’t been easy. That there have been plenty of hard times… But none as hard as the one they are experiencing now.  

About a year ago, at the age of 28 Alex was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an incurable malignant brain tumor. After immediately undergoing surgery that removed 90% of the tumor’s mass, Alex’s life was turned upside down in a blink of an eye -- but he has not been alone. Jennifer has steadfastly remained by Alex’s side and they fight his cancer together. As a result, they have both had to resign from their jobs to fully commit on his recovery and to focus on the arduous road of treatment ahead.

Treatment for this type of aggressive cancer will last indefinitely and possibly for the rest of Alex’s life. Although insurance has covered a majority of medical expenses including traditional treatments (radiation, chemotherapy and optune therapy) his insurance will not cover the alternative treatment options they will be seeking out. Traditional medicine has been effective at keeping the tumor from progressing, however, the tumor has not shrunken and they are not giving up hope and will continue to fight with everything they have and in any way possible. They have a goal of reaching remission and I am asking for your support in donating anything you can to contribute to their medical expense fund and to help Alex keep fighting hard with everything he’s got.

Thank you all for the love, friendship and positive energy you have shared with Alex.
