As parents who have suffered the loss of our only child to cancer, we understand the pain other parents in our situation are going through. You can't remember how to put one foot in front of the other let alone think about what is going to happen to your child now that they have passed.
We were right there in that moment and we decided that there was only one thing worse than our child dying and that's letting his tumour go to waste. There was no way we were going to let his cancer win. Cancer took our child but now his tumour is our servant and the servant of every child dying from cancer. Alexander's tumour is still alive in a lab and I'm confident we will find a cure.
Believe me, we understand how how are hard it is to watch your child go through one more surgery but read about Alexander's cell line below and think about the importance of brain tumour / tissue donation.
Alexander has passed away now but...THE BATTLE CONTINUES!!!
