Truly Inspiring: Alexandria Rose’s Story

Alexandria Rose was diagnosed with an anaplastic astrocytoma on January 5, 2011 at the age of 15. She battled brain tumor disease for seven months and earned her angel wings on August 4, 2011.

Alex loved to cook and was in the culinary program at her High School. She also loved to dance and could always find a way to make you smile with her wonderful sense of humor. She was an amazing daughter, sister and friend. She fought courageously for seven months, never complained and always kept a positive attitude.  She inspired people with her bravery. She fought hard to raise awareness of brain tumors/cancer, giving speeches at both the Miles for Hope event as well as the Relay for Life.

Alex took her last breath on August 4, 2011 at 3:16 am.  We believe this was a sign from god that she was needed in Heaven.  “For God so loved the world he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not parish but have eternal life.” John 3:16.
