Lexi Has a Bucket List.
Who is Lexi?
Hi! My name is Lexi and I am 21 years old. I’m pretty much a normal girl; I love my family and friends, love listening to music, I adore dogs (especially huskies) and I love watching marvel movies. Other movies too, but mostly marvel.
We're going to help her cross items off her bucket list.
"Out of the blue, I was diagnosed May 5th, 2017 with stage 4 Ewing’s Sarcoma."
I found out during my finals week of my sophomore year of college, when I was 20. My only symptom was this weird, really intense hip pain that just wouldn’t go away. I tried the chiropractor, physical therapy, an SI joint injection, and I frequently visited a pain clinic. Finally, at the pain clinic they ordered an MRI to see if I had maybe had a slipped disc in my back. Instead they found a tumor that had taken over part of my hip, my pelvic bone, was pushing on my spine and also disc in my back, and it was in my SI joint and nerve root. Since then, I’ve undergone almost a year of chemo treatments, and two separate radiation treatments. My chemo treatments were really heavy, I had to do chemo every day 5 days a week every 4 weeks for 8 hours a day. On the off weeks, I was getting 72 hours straight of nothing but chemo. Most people have treatments once a month or something like that. Not me, mine was every two weeks for 3 or more days.
"My family and friends have rallied behind my the entire time. I really don’t know what I would do without their love and support. I never expected my life to go in this direction but in the end I know it’s made me a stronger, more caring, and positive individual."

One List, One Life and Lexi
Hearing about Chris' cancer and Dillon dropping out of college, the world made Chris and Dillon's bucket list possible after they posted this video. We never expected to cross off so many amazing things from our bucket list like Breaking a World Record or Cashing a Giant Check, but our community helped us to achieve incredible things in a short amount of time.
Something we realized very early on was we didn't deserve any of the amazing things happening to us. Chris was battling cancer, but so are thousands of other people across the world.
We had an idea.
What if we built a company that told cancer patient's stories and opened up opportunities for them to experience their bucket lists? We got started locally with a young boy named Josh. He had a few weeks left to live and asked us to simply get him in touch with Will Ferrell. We did.
Starting today, Clay and Dillon will begin transferring the torch from Chris to someone else...her name is Lexi.
