Welcome to our CaringBridge site, which we created to keep friends and family updated with news on Alex's odyssey. In early May of 2016, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, in his left femur. Alex underwent 10 weeks of chemotherapy to try to shrink the tumor as much as possible before having surgery on July 27 to remove it and reconstruct his leg as needed. He's since undergone very slow and difficult physical therapy on his leg, all while undergoing several more cycles of chemo, which finished in January of 2017. We thank everyone, friends, family and strangers near and far, for their amazing support throughout this whole experience.
