Alexis and Austan Finally Meet

  Alixis Serna finally met up with his 13 year old cancer-stricken friend and inspiration from Spokane, WA over the weekend. Austan Pierce, who sent Alexis a note to keep his head up after the LSU game last year, finally made it to an OSU game. Alexis had been writing his intials, AP, on his thumbs before games to remind him of his insparation every time he tees up the ball on kickoffs. Austan has Ewings’s sarcoma, a soft-tissue bone cancer. A five-inch tumor was lodged against his left pelvis bone; both were removed last year. His radiation-weakened leg broke when he fell learning how to walk again . He’ll wear a brace and stay in the wheelchair while his leg heals.

Here are some pictures taken by donors from the message board who helped bring Austan to Corvallis.
