Team Alexis is the District of Columbia's chapter of The Cure Starts Now in honor of Alexis Agin who was battling a form of brain cancer called DIPG. Alexis was a sweet and stubborn 4 year old. Alexis enjoyed art projects, stuffed animals, DVD's and just being a 4 year old girl. She was articulate, intuitive and always on the go. She is loved and so very much a true inspiration.
