District of Columbia
Team Alexis is the District of Columbia's chapter of The Cure Starts Now in honor of Alexis Agin who was battling a form of brain cancer called DIPG. Alexis was a sweet and stubborn 4 year old. Alexis enjoyed art projects, stuffed animals, DVD's and just being a 4 year old girl. She was articulate, intuitive and always on the go. She is loved and so very much a true inspiration.
The Cure Starts Now (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
