Alex was a happy, fun little boy. He was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, Stage IV* when he was 18 months old, and though he fought valiantly, he earned his angel wings just six months later. Alex is deeply missed by his family.
*Neuroblastoma, (NB), is a cancer of the sympathetic nervous system, a nerve network that carries messages from the brain. NB is a solid, malignant tumor that is found in the abdomen or around the spinal cord in the chest, neck, or pelvis. Typically, by the time of diagnosis, multiple tumors will be found. There is no known cure for NB, and recurrence rates are about 50%.
