Welcome! Our 12 year old friend, Alex Bray, was diagnosed with Astrocytoma Glioma--brain cancer--when he was just 7 years old. After five years, several rounds of chemo, radiation, surgeries and one FANTASTIC Make-a-Wish Sports Weekend, Alex's recent MRI shows that the meds and treatment are not working. His cancer continues to progress, and at an alarming rate. Because the tumors are so close to his brain, he is losing motor function on a daily basis and spends much of his time in a wheelchair--and yet he does it with a smile on his face, and laughter in his heart.
Twelve year old boys should be out playing football, baseball and wrestling; not confined to wheelchairs knowing waaayyyy too much about mediports, infusions and hospitals. We simply cannot sit by and do nothing! Please prayerfully consider how you might help this terrific kid and his family in need. Then click the "DONATE NOW" button on the left side of this page and give generously. No amount is too small. No one should have to worry about finances while struggling to save their child's life!!
We pray for complete healing for Alex and a "peace that passes all understanding" for his family.
UPDATE 9/11/12: Although the doctors thought Alex's tumor to be "inoperable", they have decided it is his ONLY hope. Alex will have a rough couple of weeks ahead as he undergoes surgery to remove it. Now is the time to GET ON YOUR KNEES and pray for a miracle!
UPDATE 6/27/13: Alex has come along way, but still has no use of his right hand and arm, and limited use of right leg. His speech has improved greatly, but he still struggles at times. He has done well in all areas of therapy. He has physical, occupational and speech therapy 2 times a week, but it wears him out. He is currently undergoing more testing to determine why he is having seizures while sleeping. Tests have confirmed that he averages 2.5 seizures an hour during the night.
Alex is swimming and enjoying his summer break with both mom and dad, and friends. His goal of riding his bike has been pushed back, but he is determined to get it done. In fact, he still has LOTS of things he wants to do, and he is determined to do them. Alex is one strong and courageous kid!
