On April 20,2012 Lexe Selman, a daughter, sister, teammate and friend was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML). She is determined to beat this cancer with her family, friends, soccer team, and supporters by her side. A blog was started so others can follow her progress and cheer along with her. Please visit http://lexekicksleukemia.blogspot.com/ for updates and to stay involved in her journey to 'Kick Leukemia!'.
Also on September 29th, CureSearch will be having its annual walk in Salt Lake City. The walk will be held at Sugar House Park (1300East 2100 South). CureSearch is a organization that raises money and awareness strictly for childhood cancer (most cancer organization only give 4% to childhood cancer). The walk consists of individual teams. Each of these teams are made in honor of a child who is fighting or has fought cancer. Each team raises money, all of which goes towards finding a cure for all types of childhood cancer.
A team has been formed in honor of Lexe called "Team Lexe Kicks". It would be awesome to have as many team members as possible to support this great young woman! To register for "Team Lexe Kicks", you can go to the team page which is www.curesearchwalk.org/saltlake/teamlexekicks.
