Meet Alexis and her family. These photographs only scratch the surface for all that Alexis is on a daily basis. Her love for others, her passion for family, and her strong bond for animals sums up her personality and what she means to those in her life.
When Alexis was diagnosed with Nevoid Basel Cell Carcinoma, she was told she would not be able to walk, talk, or function at all. However, overcoming odds is what Alexis does best. Her family has seen her grow and blossom into the beautiful young woman she is today—despite what others said would happen.
Not only is she walking and talking, but she also excels at everything she puts her mind to. In addition to being a member of her high school bowling team, Alexis is a Straight A student, a member of the National Honor Society, and was recently accepted into multiple universities; she will be attending University of Texas at San Antonio.
With all of her potential, Alexis can be anything she wants to be. So, what did she choose? A pediatric oncology nurse. Alexis wants, more than anything, to help those who are going through the worst. This compassion is nothing short of what her family would expect from her. Alexis is known to be caring and loving to those around her—always putting others before herself. For this reason, and many more, her family hopes that she will reach all of her goals and see all of her dreams come true.
A special thank you to Chelsea Lietz of Chelsea Lietz Photography for her time and talent creating these beautiful images.
