A terminally ill Avengers: Endgame Fan, and member of the Reddit community, took to Social Media to ask for help. The member, named alexander_q, shared his personal life story on the popular social media site in hopes to see the movie, Avengers: Endgame, as a final wish before he passes.
Alexander_q told readers that he suffers from liver cancer, mouth cancer and bone marrow failure. Alexander goes on to state, “I’m not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story. Just a normal guy, I’m 33, lost my sister three years ago to the same rare genetic disease it turns out I have too. I though I’d make it to April at least, but my bone marrow is toast.” Alexander, as well as his sister, suffer from a genetic disease called Fanconi Anemia.
Avengers: Endgame is slated to release April 26, 2019. Alexander says his “endgame” is well before April. Hearing his story, and after a few moderators proved his story was in fact real, the internet went to work to help this young man out. Alexander was humbled to receive so many kind messages, he even said that strangers offered him their organs, started a hashtag on Twitter #Avengers4Alexander, and created YouTube videos sharing his story in hopes it will reach Disney/Marvel.
Alexander soon began receiving messages from people stating that the Marvel higher ups are aware of his story and will be contacting him soon! It also turns out he may have some distant connections to someone who might know Chris Hemsworth, who contacted him on Alex’s behalf. Alexander still remains humble, “I don’t know what the outcome will be, but this has been amazing. If it doesn’t pan out, don’t sweat it. I’ll carry your kind words with me and that’s worth far more.” Alex also goes on to add, “If I do survive until Endgame, it’s going to feel strange because I’ll feel sort of obligated to die :P”.
Alexander ends his post, after several “edit” updates, with the statement, “WE DID IT REDDIT!”. According to Alexander, Disney has reached out and are discussing options. He added the final statement, “I cried when I read their email. It’s everything I hoped for and I owe it to all of you!” At the time of publishing of this article there has not been an update on if this Avengers: Endgame fan will be receiving his final wish.
