Alexis grew up in Grapevine, Texas and married her husband Ryan in 2003. They are an active duty Air Force family so they have lived in Louisiana, England, Australia, and Colorado before returning to Texas in 2014 when she found out her breast cancer was now stage IV. She was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 3/2013 after having our third son. He was almost three months old when she learned that she had breast cancer. Her big boys were 7, and 3. She went through all the chemo, radiation, double mastectomy and reconstruction and discovered the cancer was back and in her abdomen in May 2014. They got a special request granted by the Air Force to move closer to family in San Antonio. Surgery confirmed it was the same cancer that had spread- Metastatic or stage IV cancer. A terminal diagnosis.
Lexi’s wish is to take her family to Disney World and Universal Studies. They will travel in August of 2016.
