September is Blood Cancer Awareness and Childhood Cancer Awareness month. The type of cancer Alex had was B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. As a couple, we were first introduced to this devastating disease by an incredible 16-year old friend, who received the diagnosis. In children, it has a very high cure rate (approximately 90% at 5-year survival). In adults, this aggressive non-Hodgkin Lymphoma has a 40% failure-free survival. Any advances forward in cancer treatments, is an advance for children and adults impacted by these devastating life sentences.
