Family and Friends of Alex Pupo are uniting to help raise money to help with his battle against Classic Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Please join us!

This page has been created to help support a great friend, Alex Pupo. Alex was recently diagnosed with Classic Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage III/IV. He has cancer both above and below the abdomen. This past Tuesday , October 2nd he had a bone marrow biopsy done and he is also getting a port put in place for the chemotherapy treatments he will be receiving. We want to make sure that he can focus on healing and that he knows he has the support from friends, family, co-workers, and his community. Alex has had his share of ups and downs in life. I think it definitely has added to his character. He is a magnetic person, loveable, funny, hardworking, he is a wonderful father to sons Jacob and Daniel and is married to his beautiful wife Yanelis. Alex has touched the lives of so many people...If you've met him, you know what I mean! "...even with health insurance, out-of-pocket expenses for a disease like cancer for example average $8,500 per year for co-pays, prescription medicines, lost wages, travel to appointments, and other expenses...the reality is that nearly all Americans regardless of income or insurance will be battling bills when a crisis happens. Almost everyone can use an extra helping hand in these situations..." One of the ways you can support Alex is by helping to ease some financial stress. Let’s lift him, his family, and his spirit and see them all through this challenge. Prayers, light, thoughts are also welcome. I’m sure Alex would love to read your comments and words of encouragement. Please share with friends and family as well. Remember your good friends, and love them. “I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” ~Dr. Seuss If you would prefer to mail a check directly to the Pupo family, you may do so in Alex's name and send to: Yanelis Pupo 14425 SW 110th Street, Miami, FL 33186.
