Alex is the best father to his daughter and his step son, he is one man with a thousand story's he's aquired over his journey. A talented sportsman, representing Tasmania for AFL and his country cricket career is seconded to none, to be honest though before his family started with his lovely partner Bree his off field antics are what most people would know and love about AB, endless amounts of larrikin behaviours and being loved by all who knows the man that's larger than life.
Last month Blakey has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, at this point Alex has to go through chemotherapy on a 6 month cycle.
Alex is a hard working shearer and will be off work for a period of time.
Please help my best mate pay his way until he's back on his feet, he has a mortgage and the bills don't stop.
