Why Alexa wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:
I know firsthand what cancer does to a family. This summer I went through the worst time of my life. My 14-year-old cousin died from cancer. What was supposed to be a week of vacation in the keys became a week of sleepless nights in the hospital waiting for his last breath. As a family we stayed there and didn’t leave his side. After that I went several months and depression where I quit everything school dance and friends. It took a lot of therapy and family involvement to get me back to where I’m at right now. I never want anyone to feel the way I did when I lost Jason.
