Alex, The Great Hero


Alex was a hero. This brave 9 year old boy tried to save his friend who had fallen through the ice. His friend survived. Today recovery searchers are looking for Alex to recover him. 

I am proud to say Alex was my cousin's son. It's an honour to know this brave boy. We are now raising money to help support the family with funeral costs, therapy for his sister who witnessed this tragedy, and anything else they need in this difficult time. 

If you cannot donate, please share or send prayers for a successful recovery mission.
