Alexander was diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy at age 3 and has since spent countless days at Children’s National working on his mobility with the occupational and physical therapy team. He keeps plenty busy with the broadcasting team at school and playing piano and drums. An honor roll student, Alexander hopes to attend UMD like his dad, and pursue a career in cyber security, a springboard from his love of video games. In 2011, Alexander and his twin sister Tess were named DC’s Children’s Miracle Network Champions. “Our kids can’t always do what their peers can do. But being a part of the Children’s Miracle Network gives them the opportunity to do what their peers can’t,” said their mother.
