In April 2008, our family was changed forever when Neely and I heard four of the most chilling words a parent can ever hear: “your child has cancer.” Since Alexis’ diagnosis and her passing, Neely and I have maintained an unwavering commitment to trying to help other parents who hear those same words. Thank you for supporting our mission!
About Team Alexis
Alexis was able to light up a room with her smile, her sweet voice and her inquisitive nature. Her piercing blue eyes truly provided a window into an amazing little girl. She drew people into her and was always surrounded by other children and adults alike. Alexis loved doing artwork and art projects, and we are fortunate to be able to cherish the literally hundreds of works that we have preserved. Alexis never wanted to sit still. There always had to be a plan for each and every day. And there always had to be a destination or a friend or an activity. One of the hallmarks of Alexis’ personality was an unwavering stubbornness that served her well through the course of her diagnosis. Alexis lived life with dignity and strength and truly transcended her small physical body.
Since Alexis’ diagnosis and her passing, Neely and I have maintained an unwavering commitment to trying to help other parents who hear those same words. Through raising funds for research, offering assistance to parents who simply need someone to talk with, or working to collect toys and books for our local clinic and hospital, Neely and I truly believe that we do so to honor the life and memory of Alexis. Through my personal involvement with cc-TDI, I am firmly convinced that we will be able to provide true hope for many parents searching for answers and better treatments. We would be honored if you would consider supporting this mission and choose to make a contribution to cc-TDI.
