Show & Tell C'ville: Lexie Divers

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (NEWSPLEX) -- Lexie Divers is no ordinary ten year old.

After her older sister lost her battle with childhood cancer, Divers was determined to help other families caring for a sick child.

Divers and her family started Alyssa House, a home where childhood cancer patients and their family can stay. Divers says the house is ideal for kids who compromised immune systems.

Alyssa House, named for Divers' sister, opens in February.

Ravi Respeto spoke with Divers about the project.
