Your heart melts when you see his big, big grin. Four year old Alex Mattei of Seneca Falls faces more surgery this week to deal with something called Chiari Malformation. Family friend Bridget Borys on the Finger Lakes Morning News today told us it's a tricky condition that there is no real cure for.
Alex's operation is Wednesday morning on Long Island. Borys says the community is asked to turn on porch lights Tuesday night, take a picture and then upload them to the Fight For Alex Facebook page to show your support. There is also a fish fry fundraiser August 2nd at Calvary Lutheran Church in Waterloo on North Street from 11AM to 6PM.
