I didn’t know Alex well, but I’ve been following his journey for about six months, starting with his news last October that he was in remission:

Unfortunately, his cancer returned, and it proved to be a tougher challenge this time around. In this short time that I followed Alex, his courage was nothing less than inspiring.
