Alexa Marie Shank Scholarship

As a tribute to Alexa, Le Rose Dance Academy offers a scholarship to our students valued up to $2000.00.

 


Alexa was a student at Le Rose Dance Academy for four years. On June 23, 2002, while on vacation, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Within 24 hours she was at Riley Children's Hospital and began a two year all treatment protocol. Alexa was released with a clean bill of health.

 

In 2004, Alexa was chosen as the Children's Miracle Network champion for Riley Children's Hospital in Indiana.

 

While taking chemo treatments Alexa performed a courageous dance solo to "Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head" at the Georgia Dome on behalf of the American Cancer Society.

 

In January 2005, Alexa's cancer returned. After more intense chemo and full body radiation, a stem cell/bone marrow transplant followed in May 2005. Alexa's brother, Conner, was a perfect match and donor.

 

December 1, 2005, Alexa relapsed. More chemo and studies worldwide were examined, but there was nothing else modern medicine could do. Alexa went into remission, but relapsed in May 2006.

 

On September 29, 2006, with her family by her side, Alexa's earthly journey ended. Alexa's mother, Dana Shank, said, "She was a gentle soul, I think she was an angel."
