Alex Graham was an energetic teenager and epitome of health. Amazingly she never contracted the typical childhood illnesses, but in 1997 all that was to change. One early fall day Alex came home from the mall complaining of pain in her knee. Three months later, at the age of 16, she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Her world and the world of those she loved would never be the same. Over the course of the next year, Alex did not get the miracle she wanted most, but her life and her selfless wish left the world a better place.

“After Susie and Bill Graham told me about their daughter’s battle with cancer and the selfless request Alexandra made through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, I couldn’t resist their invitation to work on this project. Alex was an amazing young woman. She touched thousands with the message in her public service announcement, and her story will be a true source of inspiration to individuals and families facing a life-threatening illness.”
