Here's my new baby and everyone should seriously love her because her story is the most upsetting I've come up with yet and I just need to love her.

NAME:: Alexis
GENDER:: Female
SPEIES:: Red Panda
HEIGHT:: 5'3''
WEIGHT:: 103 lbs
PERSONALITY:: Very shy, and reserved. Almost a motherly figure, but she still loves to have fun. A very calm, relaxed presence. Emotionally strong.
BIOGRAPHY YOU ALL SHOULD READ IT BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A STORY OMG/SOB:: When she was little, her mother died from cancer, and her father committed suicide shortly after, leaving her and her brother on their own. She was always teased by her peers so she never had many friends. They always called her out for being an orphan, and they always made fun of the deaths of her parents. Many of her elementary school years were spent crying, hiding in the janitors closet. She does anything she can to just be liked, that means getting things or doing things for people who tell her to do things. She is pushed around a lot and it does bother her, but she never says anything about it. In fact, she never talks. People think she's mute, but what they don't know is that whel she's home, she sings beautifully. The only one who ever hears her talk is her brother who is the only one left for her. She loves him dearly as he became a father figure for her upon the early deaths of her parents when she was only 5. (he, at the time was 13) She has the voice of an angel, and her dream is to become a music teacher, teaching anyone how to sing and let themselves be heard. She began work at a music store when she was 9, (she started out as just a little apprentice, emptying garbages and shining the instruments) saving up for music school until she was finally able to pay for it at 17. As she was ready to go on to her last year of highschool before graduation, she got very sick and was diagnosed with breast cancer. It took all of her saved money from work to afford chemo. As her story got out, she became an inspiration to the whole school. Everyone was moved by her hard life and with how strong she had been through the entirety of it. Her cancer was the tip of the iceberg in her life of tragedy and finally, one boy offered to raise money for her, so she would have a better chance of surviving. The entire school began to fundraise, making money through car washes, bottle drives and even gardening services. They kept making money and when they had enough, they donated every cent to her treatment. This deed gave her the strength to fight and through a 7 month battle, she started to get better. It was during her 8th month that her health declined overnight and the doctors finally decided that they needed to wheel her into surgery to just cut out the cancer.She lost both of her breasts, but slowly after doing so, once again, her health inclined Had they not been aputated, she would have lost her life. Her school, hearing this, made a garden infront of the school dedicated to her. As summer came to an end, it was apparent that she had missed a good 11 months of the year. Her class had already graduated without her. So, when she was healthy enough, she was let out of the hospital and she attended grade 12 with the class below her. On her first day,she was wheeled into the school by her brother as her strength still wasn't 100% and she was met with loud cheers and "Welcome back" banners, made by everyone. The whole banner had everyone's hand(paw)prints on it along with little sayings of "you're such an inspiration!! Keep going!" "You are stronger than cancer! Stay strong!" etc. It was such a change from her past years, she broke down and cried for the first time in years. Not tears of sadness, but tears of joy. Her brother was there, behind her and he hugged her. Everything was finally looking up and from there, everything began to turn around. Her health slowly is getting better and she is getting stronger. She has even begun to join some sports teams. Her brother is still with her, helping her every step of the way and she has even made a few friends as well as being an inspiration, a hero to her whole school, even a few of the peers from her years back class. She is still shy, and the most humble girl anyone knows. She can get upset, but for the most part, she is never found without a smile on her face. Since being to hell and back, she is always there for the underdog, and she always sees every day she is up and alive as a day worth celebrating.
