Benefits for Lexi

Three-Year-Old with Leukemia Starts Fourth Round of Chemotherapy

Three-year-old Lexi Krasnoff was just one week away from her second birthday when she was diagnosed with leukemia. After six months of intense chemotherapy, she was declared in remission only to relapse again this summer.

As she waits to start her fourth round of chemotherapy, Lexi’s family has found reliable support from the community. Mishay Salon and the Teddy Bear Cancer community have held bone marrow drives and fundraisers, and now close friends have decided to hold two benefits in Lexi’s honor.
