Team Alyssa Rocks raises money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"Although small in stature, Alyssa is big in heart and compassion. This spunky redhead enjoys reading, golfing and watching her brother, Luca, play soccer. She also demonstrates a dramatic flair through acting and performing.

Battling medical challenges since birth including scoliosis, cervical stenosis and two heart irregularities, Alyssa has remained strong and high-spirited throughout medical tests, repeat visits to numerous specialists and frequent school absences.

In 2012, at just 9 years old, Alyssa was diagnosed with melanoma, or skin cancer, which is rare in children. She was referred to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

In 2013, less than a year after her cancer diagnosis, Alyssa's 6-year-old cousin was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was referred to St. Jude. Alyssa immediately stepped up to help coach him through his cancer journey.

Around the same time, our family family received the news from St. Jude that we had been waiting for since the day Alyssa was born—she had a diagnosis. A micro deletion chromosome disorder, Koolen de Vries syndrome affects an estimated one in 20,000 children, but so far only around 100 children have been diagnosed."
