Hello! Meet my brother Alex Officer. He is a former football player for the Pittsburgh Panthers #63 (H2P). My brother is one of the most humble and selfless individuals I have ever had an opportunity to be around. Alex is someone who always brings a shining light into someone’s day.

Over the past few months many life changing and unexpected events have taken place with Alex and his health. During a training two months ago, Alex felt a nagging pain in his knee, he continued to fight and completed the training.  Alex was taken to the hospital where he received an MRI and X-Ray his doctors then recommended he get a biopsy. Later that week he was asked to do a more invasive biopsy due to the rarity of the location. The following week we were told they found cancer in Alex’s knee, he was later diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

Alex’s sarcoma is in a very rare location and will require two separate rounds of chemo therapy and a surgery in- between. I’m attempting to raise 100,000 to help my brother over this journey and I’m asking you for your help on my way.

                       Alex is a self-named “Dawg” and he will win this fight!

                                                              Let’s Go AO!

Today starts the final phase in round 1. My thoughts are man "Chemo is a hell of a drug" (Pun Intended). What this thing does to your body is crazy, but Alex is a true fighter. There are good and bad days but he remains positive everyday. He started losing his hair this past week, but hey its beanie season! And that's the overall attitude we are all going about this with just positively.

Quick Update...We are now 2 sessions into Chemo and Alex has powered threw every bit of it. Its crazy seeing someone smile and laughing throughout a process like this. I personally love it! He's also decided to begin writing a journal about this experience and this journey. He says he wants to be able to use this journey to allow someone else to find a source of strength in his fight.

More Updates coming....Lets Go AO!
