16 and cancer X's 2, Stage 4 #TeamALEXIS
Description
Hi EllenNation. My daughter is 16 and she loves Ellen! She is currently fighting stage 4 ovarian cancer. She is in the hospital getting 5 days of inpatient chemo every 3 weeks. (actually every 2 because the whole first week she receives treatment) She has already lost all of her hair and she's been feeling pretty down and depressed. The chemo she is taking literally cripples her. It's awful to watch. This is also her 2nd diagnosis this year. In Jan, 2017 Alexis had a 7.5 pound tumor removed from her abdomen.
It's been quite the year for someone so young. Not only my daughter, but my mother is currently fighting cancer as well (breast cancer), my mother has to walk to some treatments because she doesn't have a car. My family has just had it handed to us lately. I know if Ellen were to reach out to my daughter/family it would lift their spirits in such an amazing way. It couldn't happen to a more deserving person. Alexis is touching the world with her amazing personality and drive through all of her battles. Even going through one of the toughest times in her life, she still wants to help others. It has always been important to her to make others smile, even through her tears. Through out this process, Alexis has been bullied, questioned, and has faced some horrible comments on social media from her high-school peers. She has remained positive through it all saying that we should just "pray for them". I'd love to give back to her with this amazing opportunity as she is such an angel here on earth. Her smile is known to light up a room, and she wears it through all of the pain. She is a true WARRIOR and is showing the world how to FIGHT LIKE A GIRL! ❤

Alexis is the most amazing girl. We have shared in her story from the beginning along with her wonderful family. The support they show others during their difficult time is nothing short of heartwarming. This young girl deserves a break, something truly wonderful, to happen to and for her.

This beautiful young woman has inspired so many people around this country.  Some people, that don't even know her! Yes there are so many kids with cancer, but this lil lady, whose diapers I changed, who I rocked endlessly for hours to sleep, has had such a gorgeous smile on her face throughout this entire scrappy event in her life.  No one should have to go through what she has already and will continue to go through. She bravery and faith in God that she has, despite everything, is truly truly amazing. I lost a lot of faith and trust in God after losing my husband, this amazing girl has given me so many reasons to restore my faith. She absolutely has the faith and strength of a warrior, and of course, she gets it from her amazing mama. Just seeing my kids sick with a cold or the flu is hard. The strength and faith that Christina has is absolutely astonishing. As hard as it is to have faith and to trust God when this is happening to your child, she keeps it. She keeps the faith and trusts in God to follow out his plan, her life, their life. Regardless.  Christina and her family are the true definition of faith.

I have personally known Alexis since she was little and she truly does have a wonderful heart! She is so uplifting and her faith in God is an inspiration to so many. She remains positive even through such a hard time and she continues to praise God because she knows he's with her always. She has an amazing smile on her face that is contagious and brings so much joy to others! Christina and her family are an amazing family and to get a call from Ellen would mean the world to Alexis & her family!
