What's my story?
Lex has always had a big personality. He is smart, witty, and loves people! When he was 10, at the start of 5th grade, he was diagnosed with high risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He went into remission after his first round of chemotherapy and is completing 10 months of intense treatment before moving to over 2 years of monthly maintenance treatment. The treatments were hard on his body and limited his ability to go to school and participate in his usual activities.
Despite this set back, he claims he will live just like his blood type and “B positive”. He amazes everyone around him with his determination, optimism and deep belief in the bigger plan for his life.
He rang the bell signifying finishing treatment in January of 2022. He is 14 years old and is proudly a bagger at Publix.
