MY NF HERO ALEXANDER NEEDS OUR HELP AGAIN MORE THAN EVER
 
 
 
 
CRO-MAG ARMY LETS DO THIS!!!!!!! 
 
 
 
Last year on October 8, 2016 I raced IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Kona, Hawaii for my NF Hero "Alexander the Great" Owens, a little boy with NF (neurofibromatosis). 
 
Thanks to everyone's PMA and support, we raised over $50K for Alex and his family last year!  
 
 
 
 
After Kona and after Alex turned 4 years old, they found a new painful tumor on his back. He already had 1 brain tumor and 1 existing tumor on his back, so he's got even more MRIs, more doctors visits, more traveling 3hrs+ from CT to see specialists about his tumors. These tumors can't be operated on and there's no treatment like chemo or radiation that can help him. The tumors give him migraines and put him in danger of blindness and more pain.
 
 
 
 
Since he was born, Alex has been living with NF. They found the first 2 tumors on his back and in his brain when he was 2 and a half.  Alex is a HAPPY and mellow kid, a little shy but compassionate. He's only 4 years old but has so much PMA, look at his smile! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Alex turns 5 years old on Oct. 12, 2017, and I'm going to race for him again 2 days later, at Kona on October 14.  He needs our help now more than ever. I'm fighting for his future free from pain and more tumors. Thanks so much for your donation in my efforts to battle NF and for my NF Hero Alexander.
