Fund-raising event planned in memory of Alex Miliotis  

File photoA fund-raiser is planned for later this year in honor of the memory of Alex Miliotis, an Andover teen who died of childhood cancer in 2002. Money raised will go toward cancer research.

The Alex’s Team Foundation, founded in memory of former Andover High School student Alexandra Jane Miliotis who tragically died of cancer at 16, will sponsor the 5th annual Spirit Ball in memory of Miliotis. The event will be held on Nov. 3 at the House of Blues in Boston.

This event celebrates her life and memorializes her journey of hope and courage during her battle against Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Diagnosed in May 2001, Alex died on March 15, 2002.

Organizers say her angelic smile, positive outlook, and unwavering loyalty to her friends and family has been instilled in the Foundation. As a testament to her strength and courage, the Alex’s Team Foundation strives to find unique ways to support childhood cancer research and nursing.

Foundation awards impact the cancer community by providing support to nursing care staff, doctors and families. Through their flagship programs with Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard University Medical  


School and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. 

Alex’s Team Foundation truly believes that the groundwork has been laid to establish a lasting impact on the search to cure childhood cancer and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

This year’s Spirit Ball starts at 7 p.m. at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street in Boston. It will feature a night of live entertainment, silent and live auction, food and drinks, as well as the opportunity to support the fight against childhood cancer.

Tickets for the event are now available and can be purchased through the Foundation’s website,
