Meet our Previous Turkey Trot Ambassador!
2021 Rady Children's Hospital Coronado Auxiliary Turkey Trot Ambassador - Alex Inserra
Alex was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at age 3.5 in October 2019. He has fought through countless hospital visits, needle pokes, anesthetize procedures ever since. The medication regimen is grueling including daily, weekly and monthly chemotherapy. It has taken a toll on his body and mind, but he has stayed strong and fought through it all. He is truly a warrior!
Alex loves playing outside, swimming, Lego and making people laugh. He’s a Star Wars fan, a wiz at Minecraft, and a caring friend. This battle has been hard on him, but we wouldn’t be where we are today without our team of doctors, nurses and support staff at Rady Children’s Hospital. Cancer effects the whole family and we are so grateful for all the support from RCH and our family and friends!
