Alex discovered the cancer by chance this fall while still volunteering as the head coach of Conifer High School. Alex was helping a maintenance employee with painting and developed pain on his right side which he thought was a pulled muscle in his lower right rib area. Later, around Christmas, Alex noticed a lump in that injured area. He had a CT scan a week later. The results showed the tumors in his colon and liver. Coincidentally, Alex had been feeling tired and had no appetite for may weeks prior to this. Now he knows why.
