Help Alex…an Amazing Teen

Alex Berube is in need of your help.

You don’t have to go anywhere, buy anything, call anyone, or even get up off of your chair.  What you need to do is click-through the link below to read her blog and see what she has been through  these past two years, read her incredible journey, and then click-through to the Vote For Alex page listed.  In her mother’s words:

On 2/2/12, Alex Berube woke up to a day like every other. A beautiful, healthy 14-year-old, who had never been sick a day in her life, usually just jumped out of bed to start her day. By 7:15 that morning, Alex was laying on the floor, unable to move anything from her waist down”. 

Two years later she has YET to catch a break. Alex had contracted a very rare condition known as ‘Transverse Myelitis Syndrome‘ More surgeries, more disappointments, more pain…but she never complains.  She wants to help others out.

For THAT she needs YOUR help.

Today,  on her Facebook page, Alex’s mom wrote:

“Please take a moment to read what our page is about and hit the pinned post to read Alex’s story and to vote. We are trying to win this van for her so she can have a better life, an independent life. Alex is a girl with different abilities than us walking folks, but that’s where the difference ends. She wants to hang out with her friends, go to college, work in the health care profession and share her story. Become an inspiration to those having a tough time and to teach no matter what abilities we have or don’t have, we basically are all the same. Even if she wasn’t my daughter, I would be inspired by this girl. She is amazing! Thanks for joining and helping us out!”

Like the ‘Vote For Alex’ Facebook page.  Every day when updating  your Facebook status remember a young girl whose life now revolves around a wheelchair. VOTE FOR ALEX! You can place one vote every day until the contest ends in May.  Three winners will be chosen to receive a handicapped van for mobility.

YOU may be the one to put the vote count over the top.  YOU may be the one to help Alex ‘catch a break’.   Your vote will make a difference in Alex’s life.

Let’s get Alex a van! God bless all of you for taking a few minutes each day to help Alex.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on blogs I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always useful to read through content
    from other authors and practice something from other web sites.
