A couple of years ago, Jodie & Soda introduced you to Adelaide’s #bestfirefighterever Alex Tann.

You might remember that when Alex was three, doctors found a huge lesion his brain and acted immediately to attempt surgery that night with only hours left to try to save his life. Against all odds, he pulled through, but the tumour did takes its toll. It crushed his optic nerve and took away his sight entirely.

But in spite of everything, young Alex pulled through, with Jodie & Soda shutting down the city to make Alex’s day and turn him into the best firefighter in town.

Unfortunately, it appears that in spite of how tough Alex has been through everything, his health has taken a turn.

Take a listen to Jodie & Soda update us on how Alex has been going recently:
