Alex has a wide smile and meeting him you would not guess that his life is at risk. He is 24 loves music and football and spends much of his time learning new songs to play on his guitar. His background is a mix of English and Greek heritage.
He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (a blood cancer) in 2016. In the last 5 years he has had two stem cell treatments from a partial match and a trial drug. This drug nearly killed him, but it did put him into remission. Then he relapsed. This is Alex’s sixth battle with cancer in five years. Last year, his doctors at UCLH (University College London Hospital) stopped chemotherapy as it was having no effect.
