I am Alexis Smith and I am an expert about what is required to fight a Brain Tumor. In 2011, I was diagnosed with a lemon-sized, Pilocytic Astrocytoma. Since that time, I have undergone awake brain surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and MRI's and doctor appointments too numerous to count. Throughout this journey, I have met so many courageous and inspirational people, all fighting their own battle to beat these brain tumors and THRIVE! I am grateful for the love and support of my family, friends, and the plethora of talented physicians and medical staff who guide and inspire me on this difficult path to health and wellness. This foundation is near and dear to my heart. Please donate to this worthy cause and be an important part in finding a CURE! Your generosity will always be remembered and deeply appreciated! THANK YOU!
