Our next Run to Fight Cancer Superhero is Alejandro (otherwise known as ALEX!). Alex is 5years old TODAY! Happy Birthday, Alex! LOVES Superheroes! This month his favorite superhero is Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Check out Alex’s outfit and his moves!

Favoring a new superhero each month, Alex uses all his adopted superpowers to fight cancer. Originally diagnosed with a brain tumor in December of 2010, he won that fight and is now fighting again due to a recurrence of that same tumor one year ago in July.

Mom says that Alex is always positive and keeps everyone going! His active imagination keeps everyone on their toes especially his two brothers, 8 year old Jose, and 6 year old Christian. Alex loves movies, bowling, basketball, and his new passion is learning to ride a tricycle!!

Go Alex!! We can’t wait to see you at the Run to Fight Cancer on March 7!
