Alex Dragomir, a former Cockshut Hill School student and well-known FIFA pro-gamer has passed away. Alex had been fighting cancer for the past two years since his diagnosis in 2015. The school confirmed with sadness that he died today at 3:00 pm EST due to complications from chemotherapy treatment last Friday following an infection stemming from pneumonia earlier this month.
In what now has become his final message to his followers, Alex asked his fans to "pray" for his recovery before having the surgery. "Going in for a life-saving procedure," he tweeted on Wednesday, June 9, "if it doesn't work then it's been a great time people thank you for all you've done for me but we pray we see it through and we pray we get fatter and fitter after it for them to see progress and not say they can't do anything after surgery."
