Alexa Gabrielle Mestas
SEPTEMBER 13, 1993 – JUNE 4, 2023

Lexi Mestas was diagnosed with Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer February of 2021 at the age of 27.  She had been experiencing symptoms for over 10 years which were not recognized while this cancer spread. 

The past 2 years Lexi devoted her life to raising awareness of the symptoms and raising funds to support research toward treatment options for these young women suffering from LGSOC. 

Lexi’s goal was to raise over $100k toward research and at the time of her passing she had exceeded $80k. 

Please help her family and loved ones to carry this torch across the line for our Lexi in honor of the way she lived her life—with passion and fury.

Organized by David Martin, husband; Pete and Lisa, parents; and Heather, Liana, and Raven, sisters.

STAAR exists to fund life-saving research for women with low-grade serous, a rare and severely underfunded ovarian cancer subtype.  Low-grade serous represents fewer than 8% of cases of ovarian cancer and disproportionately affects younger women.  Further, being a rare cancer means that private donations are critical to fund research.  More research means more time for adventures, more holidays, and more memory making!
