Disney have reached out and we're discussing options. Thank you all so much. This is everything I could have hoped for!

“I’m not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story. Just a normal guy,” Alexander posted. “I’m 33, lost my sister three years ago to the same rare genetic disease it turns out I have too. I’ll leave behind a devoted girlfriend and an adopted greyhound.”
Alexander suffers from Fanconi Anemia and is currently battling liver cancer, mouth cancer, and bone marrow failure as well. He thought that he would be able to see Avengers in April but further bone marrow complications have made that impossible.
After posting to the Disney subreddit, thousands of fellow fans rallied around his cause enough for his #Avengers4Alexander campaign to gain traction.
Alexander added, “Whatever grand things you imagine would be on your bucket list, do them now instead.”
