Mississippi State softball’s “No One Fights Alone” campaign makes it all the way to China

Alex Wilcox’s name and cause is now known internationally. Wilcox, a freshman Mississippi State softball player has received support all over the United States for her fight against ovarian cancer.

Her story has been shared throughout the season. Because of that, support for her has shown up in incredible ways. From fellow Mississippi schools, over to the University of Central Arkansas, and to a variety of other college softball teams, support for Wilcox has poured in to Starkville. Now, her cause has crossed international borders.

The Beijing Shougang Eagles, a professional fastpitch softball team in China, recorded a video of support. And yesterday, the Eagles tweeted that video to Alex Wilcox herself and to the Mississippi State softball account.

This is the first instance of an international team supporting Wilcox, and it shows the extent of the “No One Fights Alone Campaign.”

For this story to make it all the way to a Professional Fastpitch Team in China is absolutely incredible. This campaign has connected with people all across the globe and likely isn’t done any time soon.

Wilcox’s story is one that resonates with many and this campaign is connecting people all over. There’s no telling just how far this campaign will go and how many people it will encourage.

Hopefully, it is showing women across the world that their battle with ovarian cancer doesn’t isolate them. Hopefully it’s telling the women battling this disease that they are not alone in their fight and there is a community that is supporting them in this battle. And now, hopefully this doesn’t stop here.
