DLTX Nov 2008
Alex received a double-lung transplant in November, 2008 and is a wonderful inspiration and an example of how an organ transplant can transform and enhance one's life. She was born with Cystic Fibrosis and grew up gifted with musical talent (vocalist, mandolin-player, pianist, guitarist) and, as she told me, a love of horses.
In 2008 her deteriorating lungs were down to 27 percent capacity and donor lungs became available just in time. Following her transplant she was able to resume her singing career and ride her horse daily. She is now an avid advocate for organ and tissue donation awareness and lung research.
Alex has her own band, Alleycats, and according to The Wholenote is known as “Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing,” a title the Ontario, Canada native has earned by remaining unflinchingly faithful to American popular music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
