2021 Ambassador

Alex was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at age three and a half in October 2019. He has fought through countless hospital visits, needle pokes, and anesthetized procedures ever since. The medication regimen was grueling including daily, weekly and monthly chemotherapy. It has taken a toll on his body and mind, but he has stayed strong and fought through it all. He is truly a warrior! Alex loves playing outside, swimming, playing with Legos and making people laugh. He’s a Star Wars fan, a wiz at Minecraft, and a caring friend. This battle has been hard on him, but he wouldn’t be where his is today (and his whole family), without the team of doctors, nurses and support staff at Rady Children’s Hospital. Cancer affects the whole family, and we are so grateful for all the support from Rady Children’s Hospital and our family and friends!
