Alex Scott, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma around before her first birthday, was a remarkable young girl who wanted to raise awareness and money to help childhood cancer research. Alex created an idea of holding a yearly lemonade stand to help other children with cancer, and quickly news spread across the world. At her first lemonade stand, $2,000 was raised to help other children who were also battling cancer. Sadly, at the age of 8, Alex passed away. However, Alex’s legacy lives on. An astonishing $1 million was raised in 2004, which led to the creation of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, to continue the work that Alex started.
Today, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $50 million, which has helped fund more than 200 cutting- edge research projects, create travel programs to help support the families of children receiving treatment, and develop resources to help people everywhere affected by childhood cancer.
Every donation can help. It’s the support of volunteers, as well as outside supporters that helps to keep the funding of cancer research alive. Children all over the world are affected with cancer, and one simple donation can help a child’s life, which is exactly what Alex wanted. So grab a lemon, and make some lemonade. “Fight childhood cancer, one cup at a time.”
