Meet Alex, a 15-year-old from Indian Trail, NC. This ambitious teenager has big dreams for her future and an unyielding mindset to make it happen. In 2021, Alex received the diagnosis of Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Following the diagnosis, Alex endured 3 months of an experimental chemotherapy treatment. During that time, Alex battled exhaustion and the realization her daily would drastically change. Alex had to temporarily press pause on many things she loved like time with friends and basketball.
Despite the challenges she has facd, Alex has stayed strong throughout. “I will never let an injury or condition stop me from getting back into the game,” she says. Alex hopes to one day be good enough to play D1 or D2 college basketball, and maybe even get drafted into the WNBA. Her sports dream is to be a VIP at the Los Angeles Lakers game, in California!
