Oktoberfest for Alexa

At the age of only two years old, young Alexa has faced life-altering surgeries and treatments that most of us could only imagine as adults.  She was born with a rare leg deformity called Tibial Hemimelia.  Although doctors anticipated bilateral amputation, a doctor in Florida was able to reconstruct her legs.  These surgeries have blessed Alexa's life.  But they, along with travel to Florida and treatments for her existing heart and kidney ailments have caused her meds cal bills to become quite staggering.  


Join us for an Oktoberfest fundraiser to help Alexa get on her feet. (see below)
