Help Alex Beat Sarcoma Cancer

$26,355 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 103 people in 1 month
Hello, my name is Kathy Cotterill and I am asking friends, family and the world to help my nephew Alex Clarke fight Spindle Cell Sarcoma. Alex’s tumor is in his left hip where the ball of the femur and hip connect.
Two years ago, Alex was a healthy 26-year-old hard working, strong young man. Last year Alex had soreness on his hip which progressed until April when his femur broke and he was diagnosed. Today he is recovering from his 6th round of inpatient, week long Chemo treatments, in preparation for surgery in September at the University of Washington.
During surgery Alex’s left hip will be replaced. His left femur will be removed and replaced by a prosthetist. After surgery there will be 6 to 8 weeks of radiation and then the physical therapy can begin.
It will be quite some time before this awesome and courageous young man will be able to walk let alone work. The funds that will be collected will go towards his bills and living expenses.
Thanks, anything helps!

Just a quick update! Alex has been home for a few days now. Getting lots of rest and food (other than hospital food) so he's doing really well,

Thank you all so much for your positive healing thoughts, prayers and support.

Check it out! The new hip and femur are in and working! The pathologists have studied the tumor and the hip and feel that the cancer did not spread to other parts of his body, so radiation may not be needed. More tests are in the works but let’s enjoy this good new for now! Alex is resting nicely and watching the Husky game as I type this update. Thank you all for your support, love and prayers!

I want to take a moment and thank all of you who have supported Alex. We are over half way to our $25000 goal. Your generosity is humbling! I know many of you that have contributed are on a limited income, and it is those of you that touch me the most! Giving regardless of your situation is a true measure of what wonderful human beings you are! Bless you and thank you.
