Lexi Gurka

Baller since 2015

After Lexi’s third birthday, the news that no parent ever wants to hear: that the “bruise” was not actually a bruise at all, but was the beginning of a tumor.

Lexi’s was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins B-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. What followed was 2 1/2 years of chemotherapy with many scary complications along the way, finishing in the Spring of 2015. Since then Lexi has consistently met healthy milestones along the way and has been blessed with much support and love from family and community.

She is a happy first grader at Ballard Elementary school in Wilton, NY, and loves singing, dancing, reading and doing gymnastics.
