Super Alex

As some of you guys know my nephew Alex has been battling cancer his entire childhood. He was diagnosed with Ependymoma (primary tumor which starts in either the brain or spine) when he was about a year old.  He is now 9 years old. He has been through various surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation at such a young age. He was cancer free for five years until recently. A couple months ago his MRI showed 3 growing tumors, 1 in his brain and 2 in his spine. Unfortunately, there is nothing more the doctors can do for him. They've confirmed he has about 2 weeks of life left, which none of us want to believe. These past couple of days his health has declined drastically. Our sweet boy will never know a world outside of cancer. This saddens all of us to think that we will no longer have our sweet, loving, and caring Alex around. As his aunt, I feel it is my duty to help in anyway possible and make sure his parents do not have to worry about anything else right now, but to be there for their son. Today I ask you for your continuance prayers and to help me reach my fundraising goal to help fund his funeral expenses. Please kindly share this link with your friends and family any donations big or small, will help in anyway. Thank you in advance and kind regards, Jandi Avila.

Flor Murillo mother of Alex.
