MISSION COMMANDER: ALEXIS
From MISSION COMMANDER Alexis:
I am Alexis Johnson and I am 25 years old . I just recently reached 10 years being cancer free and seven years since my amputation. I am currently applying to medical school and aspiring to become a pediatric oncologist specializing in bone cancers. I am currently living in San Diego, California and taking a year off from my studies. I live a
very blessed life and I am fortunate to have a great support system from my huge family and friends. I have many hobbies. I enjoy being active, love baseball, science, and traveling.
I look forward to working with OsteoWarriors everywhere on their MISSIONS to Make It Better! If we can be of help to you, please contact me at MissionCommander@MIBagents.org.

AGENTS: MISSION: ALLEN’s big day was yesterday! Allen’s mom reported that the rafting experience did not disappoint Allen the Adventurer. Thank you for making this happen Agents. You have used your powers for good, and we are grateful indeed.
Thank you Agents: Brian Wicks, Anneliese Westenhofer, Kainani Enos Peter, Brittany Hunt, Kathy Pickens, WestRash Charities, Jessica Brosnan, Alana & Maureen Shepherd, Ellen Spear, Deidra Schaub, Hikari Hathaway, Karen Marsh and everyone who donated!
Allen was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in July 2016 and received limb salvage surgery in November 2016 but his cancer had already moved to other parts of his body. In July 2017, Allen had surgery to remove osteosarcoma in his lungs and now has an inoperable tumor growing in the lymph node between his lung and his heart that presses on his windpipe and makes him short of breath at times. Allen would like to River Raft in North Carolina. Donations will go towards the cost of the rafting trip, accommodations, and gas cards to get the family there.
Thank you to MISSION ALLIES: WestRash Charities!

Fifteen year old Cameron has been battling osteosarcoma since March 2016. She was a volleyball player, until persistent pain in her arm stopped her. The pain in her arm turned out to be osteosarcoma of her right humerus.
Cameron has been treated at Oschner Children's Hospital in New Orleans. She had limb salvage surgery, but the cancer had already spread to her lungs. One of the lung tumors is next to her heart, making it inoperable. 15 year old Cameron is terminal.
Cameron is able to walk, but tires easily. She wants to spend a week in Savannah, GA with her best friend. If you can help us to make that happen, please donate HERE.
MISSION: Alyssa - Our First Mission, December 2011
This is the story of how MIB Agents began. More importantly, it is the story of Alyssa Grace Divers. Her life had - and continues to have - a profound influence on the work we do every day. In addition, her epic battle with osteosarcoma inspired the establishment of The Alyssa House. The Alyssa House Provides housing for families who travel to Northern Virginia for treatment for their child.
Alyssa's story is too common, in that children with osteosarcoma frequently die due to lack of effective treatments for this aggressive cancer. We have to do better for our kids with osteosarcoma. #BecauseOfAlyssa
