    Per what has become the annual tradition, Alexa's friends came over to our house to remember and celebrate her on her birthday. We planted a sumerian cherry tree in her honor. Happy belated birthday Alexa! We are always thinking of you.

    I really hope that someday we can find the cause and a cure or treatment for this devastating type of cancer. We miss our beautiful Alexa every day, you memory will never fade.

About ALEXA’S HOPE

It’s been almost 2 years now since I lost my beautiful 16 year old daughter Alexa to Osteosarcoma. The more time that goes by, the more I miss her. I still cry everyday for her & the life she will never have.  
Alexa would’ve been graduating this year, Class of 2020. I remember her first day as a Freshman, she was so excited to start high school and when she got her Class of 2020 T-shirt I thought “What a cool year to graduate!”  We had such high hopes back then. She also would have been voting this year, we used to discuss current events often so I know she would’ve been ready and excited to vote.
I often think about her courage through chemotherapy, a shoulder amputation and two lung surgeries. I’ve never witnessed such strength & bravery. Alexa didn’t whine, didn’t cry, she didn’t complain about the many days spent at the hospital. She told me once or twice how she hated it of course and how she dreaded going each time, but that was just honesty. Yet she bravely faced the difficult chemotherapy and painful surgeries each time and stayed tough to the end. I remember her last days in the hospital; she was still texting her friends on her phone and talking to us through a whiteboard because she had a tube down her throat. 
Alexa will live on in our hearts and through her lung tissue donation to the CureFast program at cc-TDI. Please read through the cc-TDI website to learn about the 16 active projects going on right now and how cc-TDI is reaching their goal of initiating 5 de-risked clinical trials per year. They’re doing incredible work to meet critical need in an area that has historically been underfunded & severely lacking in research. 
No child or parent should have to experience what Alexa and I went through. We couldn’t save Alexa but it was Alexa’s Hope and it is my hope that research today will bring cures for tomorrow. 
Please donate today to help cc-TDI make childhood cancer universally survivable for all our children!
