Alex had her whole life ahead of her. Since she was a little girl, she was a dancer with promise. Eventually, she became a dance teacher, then unexpectedly, her dreams were put on hold.
A neurological disorder caused her muscles to shake, contract, and spasm uncontrollably. Her toes and fingers curled and became impossible to unfurl. Her body twisted and turned. Her posture was irregular.
It became increasingly difficult for Alex to function. She was diagnosed with a dystonia. Alex appeared on The Doctors to see if there was any way they could help her.
