Thank you for making our fundraiser a success!

We would like to say thank you to everyone who visited, played, purchased tickets, volunteered and sent prayers to help us make the 7th Annual This Means War 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament & Chinese Auction a success for breast cancer survivor Alexandria Baker.
You can read all about the fundraiser in this terrific Tribune Chronicle article: "War Against Breast Cancer continues"
We also captured all the fun in more than 400 photos that we've posted to our Facebook page. See the photos here: War for Alex 2017
We truly couldn't have pulled this off without everyone's support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Meet our 2017 honoree:
Alexandria Baker

We are honored to introduce to you

Alexandria Baker, our 2017 fundraiser beneficiary.


Alex, 27, of Warren was diagnosed on March 21 with Stage II breast cancer and has undergone six rounds of chemotherapy treatment and surgery. But she still has a long way to go in her journey to survivorship as she still faces radiation treatment.

Alex, who works as a log auditor at Falcon Transport in Youngstown, already has begun to fall behind on her bills because she has been forced to miss weeks of work to recover from her aggressive chemotherapy treatment and to attend her frequent doctor appointments. She worries that she and her fiancé, Mike, soon will be forced to make difficult financial decisions that could impact her daughters, Isabella, 7, and Arianna, 5.
