HAGERSTOWN -- "It's pretty much a miracle that I'm still alive, I think," 14-year-old Alex Marinelli told a crowd gathered Saturday night for a Light the Night walk to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. At 12, Alex was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia that normally strikes adults, said his father, Paul Marinelli. Alex's cancer has been in remission for three years, and he has been involved in the Light the Night walk in Hagerstown for three years. Last year's best fundraising team was St. Mary's for Alex, which raised $6,000.
