The friends and family of Alex Russo are uniting to raise money in support of his battle with MDS. Thank you so much for the support!

Alex Russo is the 13 year old son of Linda and Ron Russo. He has recently been diagnosed with
Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Aplastic Anemia, a rare blood disorder. This does not allow his body to produce
necessary blood components including platelets, red and white blood cells. An inversion of chromosome 6 is
the suspected cause of his condition. There are two other documented cases globally, both adults. Alex is the
first and only child with this condition. He has been kept stable with multiple transfusions, which can only be
given for a limited time. Because of his lack of immune system, he is unable to attend school due to the risk
of infection and has been hospitalized several times due to complications. Alex is currently awaiting a bone
marrow transplant. That being the case, it is imperative we raise as much as we can to cover the surplus of medical expenses. Any donation is extremely appreciated, large or small. We will be hosting various fundraisers so follow @angelsforalex13 on twitter or email to keep informed. Thanks so much for the concern and support!
