Fight Cancer With Alex

I started this for my son's best friend, Alex. Last August he went to the doctor to address some pain he was having with his hip. The x-ray showed an area of concern that needed further imaging. An MRI was performed and a mass was found. After doing a biopsy, doctors were concerned it was cancer and decided Alex needed surgery as well as a PET scan. The scan showed other areas of concern but finding out what type of cancer was the main concern. In the fall, shortly after Alex's 21st birthday, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

To begin his treatment and remove the tumor, Alex had to have his entire hip and part of his femur replaced to help prevent future cancer from forming there. In addition to the tumor on his hip, doctors found cancerous cells in his shoulder. After the tumor was removed, Alex began chemotherapy treatments. Alex must also undergo physical therapy on a regular basis to help with his mobility after having his hip replaced.

Alex lives on his own, with his girlfriend. With all the chemo treatments and physical therapy, Alex has not been able to work since his surgery in October. With medical bills piling up and only being 21 years old, this has been quite an overwhelming and devastating period for him. I am hoping to raise money to help Alex pay for his treatments, testing, and therapy. I have known Alex for many years and can't imagine what he is going through at such a young age. He is an amazingly smart young man with an incredible personality, always has a smile on his face.

I ask, please help this brave young man, in his fight against cancer. Help take some of the financial burden off of Alex, help him win this fight. Anything you can spare would be gratefully appreciated and help tremendously take make a difference in this young man's battle with cancer. God bless.
