CHAMPION: Alexander Alston, III, 41, Gahanna, Ohio (husband) Nominator: Wynyki Alston, 43, Gahanna, Ohio (wife, multiple myeloma survivor)
After suffering for months, in February 2009, Wynyki Alston was told eight unforgettable words. "Ms., Alston, we believe you may have cancer." After hearing the news, Wynyki and her husband, Alex, a military man who had served eight tours in the Middle East fighting the war on terror, were about to fight a very different war.
"He arranged around-the-clock care for me and our 3 children while still fulfilling his full-time military responsibilities and running our family business," wrote Wynyki Alston. He arranged for out of town family members to come in and made sure someone was with his wife at all times.
During recovery, Alex helped Wynyki accomplish everything in her life. "Throughout it all, my husband Alex was willing to do whatever it took to hold our family together for my sake, and the sake of our children," she wrote.
Two years later, Wynyki was ready to attend her appointments alone; however, Alex would figure out a way to attend the appointments, even if this meant driving three hours. "Who does that? My Alex does that. A Stefanie's Champion does that."
