Friends Helping Alex Fries

As many of you know, St. Raphael's Music Director Alex Fries was diagnosed in summer 2021 with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and has finished his chemotherapy regiment in late December 2021. The chemo was successful, but must be followed up with specialized proton radiation therapy to complete the treatment.

Alex has been able to join us as his health has allowed. The parish choirs have been on an extended "hold" until Alex is able to return normally. Should all treatments be successful, and Alex recover well, they may return in time for Easter 2022!

Alex has been keeping a blog to write about his treatment journey: Alex's Blog

Alex thanks you for all of your countless prayers, well-wishes, and offers of support!

God Bless.

If you would like to offer financial support to assist in defraying Alex's medical expenses, please donate here. Thank you.
